QUOTES
Dylan Ferguson

It’s awesome to be here in Deer Valley. This is my favorite stop on the World Cup. The volunteers do such a good job on the course and it’s such a big crowd here at Deer Valley that it makes it so much more fun.

Jeremy Cota
We have a great crowd that shows up to Deer Valley which provides tons of energy for us U.S. athletes.

Sho Kashima
It is heartbreaking to have an injury during such a great year, but that's the same reason I have no question that I can come back and have success.

I have been through this process before, having surgery in 2010 on my other knee and coming back this year being currently ranked 3rd in the world. It will be a long offseason, but I am looking forward to being on the road with my teammates again and competing amongst the best in the world.

I would like to thank family, teammates, friends, and fans. Also, special thanks to my sponsors: Heavenly, ID One Skis, Tecnica, Giro, Swans, and South Shore Snow.
