This year's competition will again be different from years past due to the continued COVID-19 protocols that exist for both the event and resort. It is paramount that we protect the health and safety of the athletes, coaches, media, and resort and event staff. Venue access, including the press center and media mixed zones, is limited to essential personnel only. Media coverage will also be supported remotely with results and digital assets available in a virtual media hub hosted by U.S. Ski & Snowboard. Members of the media can submit an application at deervalley.com/media-center/media/press-accreditation-form by Monday, December 27, 2021, to be considered for a workstation in the press center and/or access to the media mixed zone at the venue. Please note that media will be required to always wear a mask indoors and outdoors while in the mixed zone due to close proximity to the athletes. In addition, media must also be able to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination to pick up their press credentials. (“Fully vaccinated” means two weeks post final dose of an approved U.S. vaccine regimen.)
The 2022 Intermountain Healthcare Freestyle International and spectator access protocols are contingent on local and state health department approvals based on existing and future COVID-19 rules and regulations. FIS, U.S. Ski & Snowboard, the local organizing committee, and Deer Valley Resort are taking a unified approach consistent with guidance from federal, state, and local health authorities.
