Join Park City Mountain Resort For A Taste Of Utah In NYC

If you are in the Big Apple tomorrow morning (Feb 6), stop by NBC's Today Show and meet a group from Park City Mountain Resort on a 20 foot “I Ride Park City” rail over a mountain of imported snow.

Krista Parry, the resort's director of communications, explains in this blog post:

Why are we meeting in New York City? To help NBC’s TODAY show countdown to the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi. February 6, 2013 is the one-year mark to the start of the 2014 games. To help celebrate, we are building a slopestyle course in New York City’s iconic Rockefeller Center, outside Studio 1A. U.S. Freestyle skiing team athletes, including Park City All Star Tom Wallisch and Bobby Brown and Keri Herman will hit the course live on the TODAY show Wednesday morning beginning at 7 a.m. Ski Slopestyle makes its Olympic debut in next year’s Sochi Winter Games, which runs February 6-23, 2014. Park City Mountain Resort will host the 2014 Olympic Freeskiing Slopestyle and Halfpipe team naming event in January 2014.

Killington Resort, in Vermont, bringing in 5 trucks full of snow for the event.

Krista gave this invitation:

If you live in the NYC area, come join us at Rockefeller Center and be a part of the action. Plus, you can meet some of the Olympic hopefuls and get pictures taken in a chairlift. The event is free and open to the public. Tweet your excitement using hashtag #Olympics2014. I hope to see you tomorrow in Rockefeller Center!
