RENO, Nev. (AP) — The U.S. Alpine Championships are returning to Lake Tahoe again next year.

The U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association announced Tuesday the event will be held for the second year in a row at Squaw Valley, home of the 1960 Olympic Winter Games.

Sponsors say the five days of competition March 19-23 will be a celebration of the closing of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games season.

Squaw Valley CEO and President Andy Wirth says the ski resort in Olympic Valley, Calif., about five miles west of Lake Tahoe is thrilled with the news. He says it will be a wonderful chance to welcome a host of U.S. Olympians home from Sochi.

Those expected to compete include Squaw Valley native Julia Mancuso, Lindsey Vonn, Ted Ligety and Bode Miller.
