Sage Kotsenburg is scheduled to arrive home in Park City today, having completed a New York media tour on his way back from Sochi, Russia.
After winning the first gold medal awarded in the 2014 Olympics, in last Saturday's snowboard slopestyle event, Kotsenburg has remained a huge star of the Games. His Twitter following has grown from 13,400 to 63,900 in the past week and he has been a hit on all his television appearances, including an interview with new "Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon that aired Thursday.
His victory is commemorated by a new drink on the menu at Deer Valley Resort, called Kotsenburg Park City Gold. The primary ingredient is High West Bourne Whiskey and, according to a handwritten addendum, comes with "extra spoice." That's one of Kotsenburg's signature expressions.
Two elements of irony, associated with the drink: Snowboarding is not allowed at Deer Valley and Kotsenburg, 20, is not of legal drinking age until July 27.
