Park City, Utah — Ski & Snowboard Club Vail, which collected five USSA Chairman’s Awards including 2014 Club of the Year, and former USSA President and CEO Bill Marolt, who was honored with the Julius Blegen Award, pretty much stole the show at the annual awards presentation at this year’s Congress. Clubs, athletes, coaches and volunteers, among others, were honored for their snowsports contributions at the Park City Marriott on Friday night. U.S. Freeskiing slopestyle coach Skogen Sprang received the Coach of the Year Award and Mikaela Shiffrin was recognized with the Beck International, Alpine Athlete of the Year, and Olympic Champion awards.
