(PARK CITY, UTAH - August 15, 2023) – U.S. Ski & Snowboard formally announced the extension of its partnership with Intermountain Health as its Official Healthcare Partner through 2027. Intermountain Health, a leading healthcare provider, will continue providing world-class care and support for the teams, as well as title naming to the Intermountain Health Freestyle International at Deer Valley through the next Olympics.
"We are delighted to continue our partnership with Intermountain Health,” said Sophie Goldschmidt, President and CEO of U.S. Ski & Snowboard.

They remain steadfast in providing various resources to our team, and we’re excited to continue our relationship. I look forward to what we can accomplish as we gear up for next season!”
Building upon the success of the partnership since 2019, Intermountain Health will once again serve as the title partner of the 2024 Intermountain Health Freestyle International at Deer Valley. The annual event is one of the most highly anticipated World Cups on the FIS Freestyle circuit, where the best moguls and aerials athletes in the world compete under the lights at Deer Valley Resort.
Intermountain Health will remain as the title partner of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Certified Center of Excellence Program, a program that marries the expertise of both Intermountain Health and U.S. Ski & Snowboard systems and implements them into various locations across Utah. Currently, three Utah locations exist: Intermountain Health Park City Hospital; Intermountain TOSH (The Orthopedic Speciality Hospital) in Murray; and the Intermountain McKay Dee Hospital in Ogden.
New to the partnership, Intermountain Health will assume the role of title partner of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s Performance Medical Team, a new asset that focuses on providing unparalleled medical expertise and care to athletes. With this, all athletic trainers and physical therapists traveling with the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team will wear co-branded Intermountain Health Performance Medical Team patches and branding on their outerwear.
“Our partnership with U.S. Ski & Snowboard furthers Intermountain Health’s mission of helping people live the healthiest lives possible,” said Rob Allen, Intermountain Health President and CEO. “The freestyle event, Certified Center of Excellence Program, and the medical experts on the Performance Medical Team all underscore our joint commitment to health and the highest standard of excellence in care for athletes and our communities.”
