After a forty-year absence, the U.S. Alpine Championships are back in Sun Valley.

Fans from all the Gem State came to watch skiers tackle sharp turns and steep hills in the men’s super-G competition including local favorite Tanner Farrow.

"I want to do well for them but in the end, it just comes down to going up there and skiing I guess. On this hill, it's just so steep and there is never like a flat transition or anything and so it really feels like you're flying, it feels like you're going pretty fast," Farrow explained after finishing his run.

"We watched him grow up and we are just very, very close to him and his family and we support him all the way," Sun Valley resident Liz Brown explained.

Standing at the bottom of the run is Farrow’s number one fan, his mother.

"And to have it on our home hill and to have the boys here, Kipling, Tanner, It's awesome we are very excited,” Jill Farrow said smiling broadly.
