Events

October 2022

  • Utah Olympic Park
    Saturday, October 8

    The sport of skiing is unquestionably one of the most diverse recreational pursuits imaginable. By the time a lifelong skier reaches middle age, he or she has likely dabbled in or fully dedicated him or herself to a myriad of facets within the sport. Each facet provides an entirely new set of experiences, thrills, challenges and rewards.

    Matchstick Productions’ 2022 ski film explores this world of opportunities through the eyes of a 12 year-old freestyle phenomenon. Through his voice, the audience hears the skiing aspirations of such a 12 year-old, a kid who just wants to play and doesn’t have to ponder “real life” quite yet.

    The core of this film is packed with a star studded cast of skiers shredding across the globe.

    Showtime – 7:30 pm

    Thursday, October 13

    This fall at the Schutzenski Festival, Soldier Hollow will host a Level 1/2 Officials Training course. The course is taught by International Referee Shawn Robison who has served as an official in many events, including as the Assistant Chief of Range for the Soldier Hollow 2019 BMW IBU World Cup and Chief of Range for the 2022 IBU Youth & Jr World Championships at Soldier Hollow. The course combines lectures, hands-on activities, and a final exam. Participants will also have the opportunity to volunteer for the Friday and Saturday Biathlon World Cup Trials Races if they would like. This is a wonderful opportunity to up your biathlon knowledge, gain skills to better prepare athletes for competition, and to run better competitions at any level. We encourage all coaches to attend. This training is part of the pathway towards earning your IBU International Referee (IR) license. Please see below for the general clinic schedule. Cost for the two days of clinic is $50. More details will be communicated to registrants.
