On May 3, 2018, the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Congress awarded Waterville Valley Resort with the Paul Bacon Award for “outstanding service to events.” The Freestyle Sport Committee submitted the nomination after the 2018 Freestyle National Championships for Moguls and Dual Moguls were held at Waterville Valley Resort this past March 20-24, 2018. In attendance to accept the award was Waterville Valley Resort’s President/General Manager, Tim Smith and Marketing Operations Manager, Jamie Cobbett.
The nomination described the entire resort’s excitement, hard work, and dedication to a commitment of excellence for all aspects of the event with “The result (being), one of the best National Mogul events we have had in years. The number of compliments received not only during the event, but days after, has been amazing.”
Waterville Valley Resort is proud to have hosted the event this year after being one of the first ever Freestyle Dual Mogul Event sites in the early 1970’s. “It takes a village to pull off events of this magnitude. I’m very proud of our team,” says long time event guru, Jamie Cobbett.
Waterville Valley Resort will have the opportunity to serve the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team again next Spring when they host the 2019 Freestyle National Championships.
