Squaw Valley, California, Jan. 3, 2002--Due to lack of snow on the East Coast the Jeep King of the Mountain Downhill is moving from Loon Mountain, NH to Squaw Valley, CA on Saturday, January 12. The race will be held on the 1960 Olympic Downhill Course, one of the Tour?s toughest courses with a vertical drop of 1,814 feet. It has been described as the mini-Hahnenkamm-steep and fast.

The Jeep King of the Mountain is the only professional Downhill Tour in the World. The Series provides a unique opportunity to witness former Olympic medalists and other world class competitors. The Jeep King of the Mountain has an impressive history, over the past eight years the Series has featured seven of the past eight Olympic Downhill Gold Medalists. The event is produced by Eclipse Television and will air on CBS February 17, 2002.

Tommy Moe and Kyle Rasmussen of Team USA are the favorites heading into the Squaw race. Rasmussen finished first at Mammoth Mountain on December 8th winning by a narrow margin of .06 seconds over Daniel Mahrer of Switzerland. Team Switzerland leads the Team competition. The prize purse is impressive, with $100,000.00 on the line in each race and the Overall team champions driving away with two new Jeep Liberty?s. The overall individual King of the Mountain will be awarded an Infinity Prelude MTS home stereo speaker system.
