World Champs, IBU World Cup Biathlon & 2026?

Our quest to win the 2030 bid for the Winter Olympics brings two major competitions to Park City and Midway.  Just as the Sundance Film Festival is winding down, the visitor profile will shift from “People in Black” to “People in Gore Tex and Lycra” when the FIS World Championships kick off, bringing Olympic-caliber athletes to Park City, Deer Valley and Solitude to compete in Aerials/Moguls, Half-Pipe and Skier/Snowboarder Cross. Just days later, Soldier Hollow will host the IBU Biathlon World Cup, their first international competition since the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. These two major competitions will show the world and the International Olympic Committee that  we are ready, fully capable and wildly enthusiastic to host these events.  And while our strongest potential is to host the 2030 Games, we are a considerable contender for 2026; that bid will be decided this June. 

Come on out and enjoy watching these amazing athletes from around the globe compete in thrilling spectator events, enjoying parties and festivals surrounding both. Hope to see you in the stands or dancing on Main Street!

I am originally from London, England. I attended Eton College before graduating from the University of Bristol with a BSc Hons in Economics and Accounting in 1995. After graduating, I joined Citibank in London as a Foreign Exchange Trader and quickly proved himself as a positive, focused and highly productive trader. I later concluded my FX career running a trading desk in New York. It was from NY that I and my young family first visited Park City and we instantly appreciated its awesome beauty, fabulous amenities, unique location and family focused fun. "I had contacted a realtor and was looking at potential properties before we had finished our first ski trip!" It took a further 4 years from when I initially bought a vacation home in Deer Valley before I was able to engineer a permanent move to Utah. Being on all the different sides of Park City home ownership, I feel that I have a rare perspective which I look forward to sharing with you. I take great pleasure from assisting my clients with their purchases and sales in the area and I look forward to being able to do the same for you. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly at any time with any questions at all.
