Just ask U.S. aerialist Kiley McKinnon. She didn’t have her best performance on Friday at the FIS Visa International Freestyle Ski World Cup at Deer Valley, but she still won the best prize available to the U.S. athletes: a trip to the Olympic Games. Historically, she’s had mixed performances at Deer Valley – she took second last season and in 2015, but finished eighth and 13th in the two-day event in 2016. This year, she fell short of making the final round of six competitors, taking eighth overall, but because no other U.S. women stood on the podium, she clinched a spot on the U.S. Olympic team. “I don’t even know how to explain it,” she told press at the bottom of the White Owl run following her performance.

McKinnon didn’t make the super finals round, but still clinched an Olympic berth. Freestyle skier reaches super finals in bleak year John Lillis’ finals jump was ‘as good as it gets’ from judges BEN RAMSEY The Park Record The past year has been a roller coaster for U.S. aerials skier John Lillis. In March he won the World Championships in Spain, then in October his youngest brother Mikey died suddenly in his sleep. In December his younger brother Chris, also an aerials skier with the U.S. team, broke his leg in training before a competition in China -- all this while trying to qualify for the rapidly approaching 2018 Winter Games. On Friday, Lillis was the highest-placing American at the FIS Visa International Freestyle Ski World Cup at Deer Valley Resort, where he took sixth overall. Lillis jumped to the top of the bracket in the finals when he earned 130.53 THE COLONY AT WHITE PINE C ANYON points and a spot in the super finals. Had he earned that score in the super finals, he would have taken third. But he lost control on the landing of his super final jump and earned 72.85 points, dropping him to sixth. He said overall, he was proud of his performance. “Outside of the last one, I was really happy,” he said. “The jump before that was two points away from perfect, and they don’t really give out perfect scores, so as far as that goes it’s about as good as it gets. If I can keep that go- ing and keep that momentum rolling and keep that going into the upcoming Games, I will be really happy.” It made his teammates happy, too. “I love seeing good jumps,” Ashley Caldwell said. “What’s awesome about aerials is we have a lot of camaraderie in our sport – it’s very tough, it’s very scary — so when someone does a nice jump we all appreciate it. … Also, I know him personally very well, and he’s struggled with a lot of Please see Lillis, B-3 | PA R K CI T Y U TA H ONE WAY TO GET AWAY FROM IT ALL IS TO LIVE IN THE MIDDLE OF IT ALL.
