Soar gets third place in dual moguls

Staff report

Killington’s Hannah Soar secured a podium spot and a third place finish in World Cup dual moguls at Deer Valley Resort in Utah on Sunday, Feb. 4.  

This was her best performance of the season and her first podium. Soar has  previously done well at Deer Valley — the only United States resort to host a World Cup women’s freestyle skiing event. A couple days before her podium, on Feb. 2, she scored fifth in moguls.

She got seventh place in moguls last year at the U.S. event and second in dual moguls in both 2020 and 2021. 

Soar, 23, graduated from Killington Mountain School and grew up competing in mogul competitions at Killington Resort.
