The Audi FIS Alpine World Cup 2016-2017 Moves To North America

Despite the cancellation of the Men's Races in Lake Louise and Beaver Creek, the Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup continues in Killington next weekend.
The Alpine Ski circuit is set to bring the World Cup back to the East Coast for the first time since 1991 as Vermont’s Killington Resort hosts races in the Women’s Slalom and Giant Slalom over the upcoming weekend.
"Killington has worked around the clock to ensure a successful return of the World Cup to the east for the first time in 25 years", said USSA Vice President, Events Calum Clark. "Killington and Powdr have been strong partners in this endeavor and we are looking forward to showcasing our sport in our largest membership region".
Killington Resort is a four season destination located in the heart of Central Vermont’s Green Mountains. Killington boasts 92 miles of diverse snow sports terrain spread across six peaks including Pico Mountain, and served by the most expansive lift network and snowmaking system in Eastern North America.

The ladies' speed season will kick off as scheduled in Lake Louise (Alberta, Canada), where the organisers put lots of efforts into prepping the course.
Following a cancelled men’s Lake Louise Alpine Ski World Cup, the weather turned and with colder temperatures the race organizing committee, along with the full resources of the Lake Louise Ski Resort, were able to make enough snow for the ladies Audi FIS Ski World Cup downhill and super G races. The races will kick off on Friday, 2nd December with a downhill race, followed by a second downhill on Saturday, 3rd December and super G race Sunday, 4th December 2016.
The tireless work of the volunteers continues to be the backbone of the Lake Louise Alpine Ski World Cup. From installing safety systems and fencing, to prepping the racetrack for the world’s fastest skiers, the team has been working overtime to achieve a positive snow control.
