Olympic gold medal skier Jonny Moseley, who took the prize in freestyle skiing in the 1998 Olympics, married his longtime girlfriend and business manager Malia Rich on Saturday, in Telluride, Colo., PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

The two exchanged vows in front of 130 guests at a non-denominational church service, followed by a reception at a private mountaintop resort. The bride wore a dress by Monique Lhuillier.

"We feel so fortunate to have our friends and family here with us as we celebrate and create many lasting memories," Moseley told PEOPLE.

More on this story

This is the first marriage for both Moseley, 30, and Rich, 29, who met in high school. The couple started dating five years ago and got engaged on April 20, 2003.

Born in Puerto Rico, then raised in northern California, Moseley is a two-time World Cup champ. He was the first to receive a gold medal for the United States in freestyle moguls at the '98 Olympics in Nagano, Japan.

His fame on the slopes helped land him a job as host of MTV's Real World/Road Rules: Battle of the Sexes – as well as a spot on PEOPLE's list of Top 50 Bachelors in 2002.

As for marriage, he told PEOPLE at the time: "I think I could develop into a good husband."
