Utah provides a solid footprint for the unique Winter Olympic event of nordic combined, which matches cross-country skiing with ski jumping. With world-class Olympic venues at both Soldier Hollow (cross-country) and the Utah Olympic Park (ski jumping), Utah has long been the training base for the U.S. Nordic Combined Ski Team, which won four Olympic medals in 2010. The region is also a regular stop on the FIS Nordic Combined Continental Cup tour and was the site of the 2017 FIS Junior World Championships. Park City is also the home of Olympic champion Billy Demong.
