PARK CITY, UTAH (AP) - Olympic freestyle medalists Liz McIntyre and Nelson Carmichael have been inducted into the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame.

Ski mountaineering pioneer Bill Briggs and two-time alpine Olympian Cary Adgate were also inducted Saturday at Deer Valley Resort.

McIntyre won a silver medal in moguls at the 1994 Lillehammer Games. She later became the U.S. Ski Team moguls technical coach before retiring in 2006, working with Olympic medalists Shannon Bahrke, Toby Dawson and Travis Mayer.

Carmichael won a bronze medal in moguls at the 1992 Albertville Games when the event made its debut.

Adgate was a six-time U.S. champion and a member of the U.S. Olympic team in 1976 and ‘80.

Briggs is considered a leader of American ski mountaineering.
