As you know, your child’s learning experience and training opportunities are our top priority. We are always striving to provide the best resources, coaches, facilities and programs to put our young athletes on the path to success.
I am excited to announce that five local youth ski clubs, including Park City Nordic Ski Club, intend to combine into one unified club named the Park City Ski & Snowboard Club (PCSSC) to better serve Park City’s aspiring athletes. PCSSC will include Alpine Skiing, Freestyle Skiing, Nordic Skiing and Jumping, and Snowboarding programs.
In an effort to streamline and facilitate innovative programming for winter youth athletes and families in the Park City region, a volunteer Integration Team, comprised of representatives from all clubs involved in the integration project, have committed to integrate existing ski and snowboard clubs. Benefits would include:
Community: A single club gives athletes the opportunity to sample multiple winter sports as part of the PCSSC multi-sport community.
Facility Utilization: Overseeing programming for more than 1,000 athletes, PCSSC’s increased population leverages access to critical development resources, venues and training facilities.
Professional Management: The one-club structure eliminates redundant operational areas and streamlines sport management and administration.
Clarity: PCSSC provides a seamless multi-sport experience for athletes and their families that focuses on a progressive athletic and social development model.
For Our Youth: PCSSC creates a positive environment for youth to celebrate camaraderie amongst all winter sports within one club.
After an extensive vetting process and numerous rounds of interviews with the PCSSC Integration Team and executive staff of the Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation, Jesse Hunt was selected to serve as PCSSC’s Interim Executive Director. Hunt has led the Park City Ski Team since 2009 and would oversee the new organization through its initial formation. Ski team representatives and community partners involved in the decision have a vested interest in the potential future of PCSSC and its athletes and are confident Hunt is the best fit amongst the pool of talented candidates considered to direct the possible launch.
PCSSC will exist under the umbrella of the Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation (UOLF) but will operate as a separate LLC. The PCSSC Integration Team will appoint a Local Board to guide staff in overseeing and evolving the integrated Club. The Board will include up to thirteen (13) members according to the following appointments: Alpine: Summit Ski Team and Park City Ski Team (2), Freestyle: Team Park City United and Fly Freestyle (2), Nordic: Park City Nordic (1), Snowboard: Team Park City United Snowboard (1), UOLF (2), YSA (1), Park City Mountain (1), Deer Valley Resort (1) and At Large (2). The Executive Director will oversee four Board-appointed Division Directors – Alpine, Freestyle, Nordic, Snowboard – who will create their respective program’s staffing models with feedback from the Board.
With the support of Utah Olympic Legacy Foundation President & CEO Colin Hilton, Youth Sports Alliance Executive Director Aimee Preston, Deer Valley Resort General Manager Bob Wheaton, and Park City Mountain General Manager Bill Rock, know that the Park City community is dedicated to PCSSC and the successful futures of our young Park City athletes.
An Open House has been scheduled for Wednesday, June 21 at 7 p.m. at the Utah Olympic Park.

On Wednesday evening over 120 PCNSC skiers and family members gathered to celebrate the end of a fantastic season!
The evening kicked off with a potluck style dinner. The room was a buzz with teammates, coaches, and parents, reconnecting and sharing spring break tales. After dinner, we launched into awards. I always have trouble calling it an "awards ceremony". To me it is much more. It is a chance to share some of the most inspiring athlete stories and events of the season.
