SALT LAKE CITY – The defending national champion University of Utah will host the 2022 NCAA Skiing Championships to culminate a rapidly approaching season, now less than two months away. It’ll be the first time since 2014 that the path to the title runs through Utah, with the championships scheduled for March 9-12, 2022 at Park City Mountain Resort and Soldier Hollow Nordic Center.
Five regular season meets dot the schedule, including the Utes hosting the Utah Invitational. The complete slate can be viewed here.
The Nordic docket begins at Soldier Hollow with the Utah Invitational on Jan. 2 and Jan. 6, before the Utes head to Sun Valley for the Montana State Invitational on Jan. 15-16. Alaska Fairbanks will also host a Nordic meet at Birch Hill on Feb. 1-2, and teams will remain there for the RMISA Invitational on Feb. 5-6.
On the alpine side, competitions get underway from Jan. 18-20 at Bridger Bowl with the Montana State Invitational and RMISA Invitational. Teams will then move to Park City from Jan. 23-25 for the RMISA Invitational and Utah Invitational. In addition, after an idle period, Denver will host an alpine-only meet at Aspen Highlands on Feb. 19-20.
Set for Feb. 23-26, both alpine and Nordic teams will descend on Steamboat Springs, Colorado for the RMISA Championships, where a regional champion will be crowned ahead of the NCAA Championships in Utah.
The Utes have won 14 NCAA titles all-time, including the last two completed championships in 2019 and ’21 under Director of Skiing Fredrik Landstedt. It has continued a period of national dominance by the RMISA, whose schools has won each of the last eight completed NCAA Championships, with Utah (three), Colorado (two) and Denver (three) claiming titles in that time.
