Guests of Deer Valley Resort now have the opportunity to book a once-in-a-lifetime camp and coaching session with two Olympic champions, Jillian Vogtli and Ted Ligety. For the winter of 2023–24, Deer Valley will release a limited number of clinics to train alongside some of the best skiers in the universe on Deer Valley's perfect snow. There is no better combination of factors to elevate your skiing to the next dimension. Each session with Ted or Jillian offers limited space and dates so interested guests are encouraged to book their clinic immediately. Read on to learn about each Olympian's offerings and what to expect. 



THE DEER VALLEY WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT SKI CLINIC WITH 
JILLIAN VOGTLI

Two-time Winter Olympian and U.S. Ski Team Athlete, Jillian Vogtli is a freestyle skiing icon and two-time US National Champion. With over 100 World Cup moguls events under her belt, eight podium finishes and top-10 finishes in six FIS Freestyle World Championship events, Vogtli is keen to share with other women her perspective on what it takes to create balance and mental strength in skiing and life.

"In order to obtain overall wellness, it is essential to find the balance of the body, soul and mind. If one is weak there is no balance and without balance, one cannot dream of reaching their potential." - Jillian Vogtli

Vogtli has previously been involved with Deer Valley's SKI WITH A CHAMPION program but wanted to create a women's specific clinic that incorporates more than just skiing. With her skiing pedigree and her training as a certified fitness and wellness coach, this renowned champion wants to impart her wisdom on what a strong mindset can do for women both on and off the slopes.

Vogtli firmly believes that becoming a stronger skier, both physically and mentally also makes you stronger in life. Her effervescent personality and vibrant connection with Deer Valley guests create the perfect atmosphere for women to push their boundaries in a supportive and welcoming environment in her Women's Empowerment Clinics.

A session with Jillian will focus on skiing fundamentals with added assistance from a number of Deer Valley's best ski instructors. High-level coaching, mindset coaching, video feedback, indoor sessions, and skiing around with Vogtli are offered in two one-day session formats as well as one three-day session in March. Space in the Women's Empowerment Clinics is extremely limited and group size will be capped at 5-6 participants. Women will set goals with Jill and enjoy individualized attention and coaching alongside a Rossignol gift bag.

DEER VALLEY'S TED LIGETY PERFORMANCE CAMP

Ted-Ligety-ski-clinic-deer-valley copypng

There are few Park City residents quite as famous as local legend Ted Ligety. Having grown up honing his craft in Utah, Ligety's accolades include dozens of World Cup and World Championship podiums, five Giant Slalom World Championship titles and two Olympic Gold medals. As a Deer Valley Global Athlete Ambassador, Ligety is thrilled to offer one three-day session of high-level skiing and coaching to Deer Valley guests January 26–28 for the Ted Ligety Performance Camp.

"I'm excited to share my secrets of carving perfect turns again this year and watch people with grins ear to ear as they make big strides skiing."  -Ted Ligety


To start, class participants will begin their first day with a fitting of the CARV-in boot training device. CARV is a mobile app and specialized ski boot footbed loaded with sensors to provide skiers with real-time feedback. Thirty-six sensors track a skier's every movement on the slopes to provide insight into balance, pressure, and edging to achieve better turns and those perfect carves. To learn more about CARV's groundbreaking technology, which Ligety has helped to develop, see our writer Paula's article here. "I'm excited to share my secrets of caring perfect turns again this year and watch people with grins ear to ear as they make big strides skiing." 

The 4-6 participants will then be paired with a Deer Valley Ski Instructor for the duration of the three-day class while Ligety rotates between each group individually. Time on the mountain will focus on perfecting turns at speed with emphasis on both skiing fundamentals and the pioneering techniques that Ted developed to win big as one of the best skiers on the planet. Indoor sessions will focus on high-level skiing discussions and video feedback to augment the lessons learned on the snow. The coolest part: each morning session will include private access to a freshly groomed run, not open to the public, with the added bonus of a First Tracks experience scheduled for Sunday.

Ligety will be hosting one clinic in 2024, making space for the Ted Ligety Performance Camp extremely limited. Check below for dates, pricing, and a link to the clinic's comprehensive schedule.
