St. Moritz To Host 2 Super-G Events This Weekend

 

The world's fastest Women will gather in St. Moritz (Switzerland) next weekend for the first speed events. Two Super-G races are scheduled to take place in the Upper Engadine Valley.
Last season Sofia Goggia returned in St. Moritz to her winning ways with a Super-G victory. Goggia was characteristically aggressive and risky, and the style paid off massively. She bested her teammate Federica Brignone by merely 0.01 seconds. Mikaela Shiffrin joined the Italian duo to complete the podium (+0.13 s.).
In a tight race, the top 10 racers were all within one second of each other, and there was a three-way tie for sixth with Nina Ortlieb (AUT), Corinne Suter (SUI), and Kajsa Vickhoff Lie (NOR).
In 2019 an unstoppable Mikaela Shiffrin followed up her career-first Audi FIS Ski World Cup super-G win in Lake Louise with a second one less than a week later at St. Moritz.
Lara Gut-Behrami secured her first podium finish of the season by finishing second in front of the home Swiss crowd at the same resort where she notched her first-ever World Cup podium and subsequent victory in 2008. Tina Weirather nabbed the final podium spot in third place 0.42 seconds off of Shiffrin's leading time.
In 2017 Austrian Nicole Schmidhofer took Gold on the Women's Super-G during the first day of the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in St. Moritz. She swooped in to beat Liechtenstein’s Tina Weirather by 0.33 seconds and Switzerland’s Lara Gut by 0.38 seconds, who ended up in second and third place, respectively.

St. Moritz has a permanent place in the international ski racing calendar. St. Moritz has hosted five alpine ski world championships: 1934, 1948, 1974, 2003, and 2017 and two Olympic Games in 1928 and 1948 – the only ones ever held in Switzerland. St. Moritz is one of the very few exclusive locations, such as Lake Placid and Innsbruck, to have hosted the Winter Olympic Games twice. The 1928 Games were, in fact, the first-ever official Winter Olympic Games – the "test run" in Chamonix (1924) was only honored with this title much later on.


St. Moritz is more than just a holiday resort. It was also the birthplace of the Alpine winter holidays in 1864. Nevertheless, St. Moritz first became famous thanks to its mineral springs, which were discovered 3,000 years ago and established the town as a summer spa resort early on.
St. Moritz, which lies on the south side of the Alps, in the Upper Engadine Valley, at an elevation of 1,856 m, boasts plenty of sunny days. It was exactly this sun that was legally protected as the emblem of St. Moritz in 1930. St. Moritz was often ahead of the times - for example, the first electric light went on at Christmas time in 1878, the first golf tournament in the Alps took place here, in 1889 and one of the first ski lifts in Switzerland began running in 1935.

St Moritz is Switzerland's most famous exclusive winter resort: glitzy, expensive, and fashionable. Few ski destinations can claim even one five-star hotel, but this sunny Swiss lakeside resort boasts five, including the all-suites Carlton, located in Tsar Nicolai II’s former vacation house. St. Moritz Dorf in the hillside over the lake includes Via Serlas’s jet-set shopping "luxury mile", with boutiques like Emilio Pucci, Gucci, Chanel, or jewelry stores like Bucherer, Cartier or Chopard. St. Moritz Bad, at the lake’s foot, hides local gems among its shops, restaurants, and hotels.
The valley offers nine ski areas accessed with a single ski pass. Several of them are connected by lifts; the rest are connected by bus. The Engadine Ski Paradise: St. Moritz-Corviglia, Corvatsch, Diavolezza are synonymous with breathtaking and unforgettable skiing experiences. 60 modern transportation facilities open up on 350 km of snow-covered runs at altitudes from 1,800 to 3,300 meters above sea level of slopes in nine different skiing areas with 37 mountain restaurants.

Alexis Pinturault Wins Parallel Race On Lech Zürs


Alexis Pinturault wins today in Lech Zürs his 30th World Cup Race after defeating Henrik Kristoffersen in the Big Final by 0.11 seconds. After scoring the second-fastest time in the qualifications, Pinturault managed to overcome all his opponents, prevailing on Alexander Schmid (GER) in the semi-final and on the Norwegian rival in the final. Pinturault is the first skier to win a World Cup Race in six different disciplines.
With today's victory, Pinturault extended her lead in the overall standings, having scored 150 points.
"If you talk about the victory and the race today, it is something really great", Pinturault said. "It was pretty good, it was going so fast that you have no time to think about it. You have to focus on your race and on your runs".
The Frenchman is now ranked 10th place in the all-time winners' list in the Men's World Cup history, overtaking Stephan Eberharter. Next on the list is American skier Bode Miller with 33 wins. Pinturault is also the most successful active male skier since record eight-time overall champion Marcel Hirscher retired in 2019 after winning 67 races.
Henrik Kristoffersen skied at a great level throughout the whole evening. In the final, he lost the first leg by 0.16s and could only make up 0.05s in the second leg; not enough to take the victory.
"Today was good for me, I am very satisfied with the race", said Kristoffersen but the Norwegian repeated his earlier criticism of the format, calling the courses too straightforward, "If you have racers competing so close to each other, you cannot work with rolls or jumps. If you see the slalom in Kitzbuehel, the downhill in Kitzbuehel, or the giant slalom in Adelboden, there is so much terrain and you have to ski in the flats and in the steep parts. But the Parallel is made for the show".
Alex Schmid beat Adrian Pertl from Austria in the Small Final. It's his second podium in the World Cup after his third position in Chamonix in the Parallel Gian Slalom last season.
His strong performance tonight in Lech Zürs enabled him to confirm that he is one of the best specialists in this discipline.

The Men's tour will head now to Santa Caterina Valfurva (ITA), after the cancelation of the races in Val d'Isere, with two Giant Slalom events set to take place next weekend.

Petra Vlhova Claims Victory in Lech Zürs Parallel


Under the lights in Lech Zürs tonight, Petra Vlhova topped surprise finalist Paula Moltzan in the Big Final. For Vlhova is her third World Cup race in six days. She was on the podium in all four races of the season, after finished third in the season-opening Giant Slalom in October. With today's victory, Petra Vlhova extended her lead in the overall standings, having scored 360 points out of the 400 available until now.
"I was all the time focused on each run. I didn’t think too much ahead, (...) Every run was like a final. The girls are really fast. But I am here and I won. It’s something amazing for me", Vlhova said.
"It looks easier than it is (..)I worked hard for it in the summer and without my team, I wouldn't ski the way I'm doing right now".
Paula Moltzan skied very consistently throughout the whole evening, eliminating Marta Bassino on her way to the big final. It's the first podium in the World Cup for the American after she earned her first top 10 in Sölden. In the big final, Moltzan crashed and skied out in the last section of the course.
Lara Gut topped Sara Hector of Sweden in the Small Final. Hector missed the final by only 0.01 sec.
The Swiss star showed incredible form, scoring the fastest time in the qualifications this morning. She only surrendered to Paula Moltzan in the semi-final.

The Arlberg's legendary status is rooted in the history of Alpine Skiing. The cradle of Alpine skiing is located in the heart of a vast mountainous area between Tyrol and Vorarlberg. This region of Austria, one of the snowiest in the Alps inspired daring young ski pioneers at the beginning of the 20th century. Their inventiveness and ingenuity both shaped and influenced the sport of alpine skiing.
No one better embodies this local pioneering spirit better than Hannes Schneider. Born in Stuben am Arlberg, he founded Austria's first ski school in St. Anton in 1921, thereby revolutionizing skiing with his ‘stem christie’ technique.
When a village with just 1,500 inhabitants has four Olympic champions in Alpine ski racing, who have won five Olympic gold medals, such as Trude Jochum-Beiser (Gold in the Combined Event in 1948 in St. Moritz, and in Downhill in Oslo in 1952) Othmar Schneider (Gold in Slalom in 1952 in Oslo), Egon Zimmermann (Gold in Downhill in1964 in Innsbruck), and Patrick Ortlieb (Gold in Downhill in1992 in Albertville) its reputation as a skiing mecca is well deserved.
Since being founded in 1901, Ski-Club-Arlberg athletes have won 83 combined medals at the Olympic Games and World Championships.

The 2016-2017 season marked a turning point in Arlberg's history with the creation of the largest interconnected ski area in Austria and one of the five largest ski domains in the world: the Ski Arlberg.
With 88 lifts and cable cars, 305 kilometers of pistes, and more than 200 ski itineraries Ski Arlberg offers infinite skiing possibilities to experience the legendary Arlberg in all its facets and immerse yourself in a unique winter paradise. From St. Anton, St. Christoph - a must-see is the legendary Hospiz Alm -, Stuben to Zürs and Lech to Schröcken and Warth.

Petra Vlhova Wins Second Slalom of the Season in Levi


Petra Vlhova confirms she is the number one wins two out of two in Levi. Three out of Four runs have been won by the Slovakian star who increased the fluidity and consistency gate after gate. Petra Vlhova has won all the races in the discipline in 2020 and collected her fifth straight slalom equaling Marlies Schild with the same milestone.
"It was really difficult for me because I was a little bit under pressure because yesterday I won and today I wanted to confirm, (...) I am so, so happy that I can manage myself and put in all my power. In the end, it’s two victories in two days, so that’s amazing", Vlhova said following her 16th career win.
"Today I leave Levi with big confidence (...) I feel that this year, I have a lot of power, a lot of confidence. For the next races, I will try to do the same but it is not easy to take the victory", said Vlhova.

Only 0.31 seconds behind Vlhova was Swiss Michelle Gisin, who with today's second-place wins her World Cup best career result and her ninth podium. In the first run, the Swiss managed to stop the time on a par with the Slovakian.

The second run of today's slalom has been won by Katharina Liensberger. She collected two third places in two days, and she established herself as the new Austrian tech team leader. Among the fastest four runners in the second run were three Austrians with the fastest Liensberger, Katharina Truppe in third, and Franziska Gritsch in fourth. Only the winner, Vlhova, was able to keep up with the red-white-red runners as the second-fastest.
"The direction is right (...) I had good turns, especially in the second run, where I immediately felt that something was going on. I would like to take this feeling with me. We also have a top result as a team. Congratulations to everyone. It shows that the direction is right", said Liensberger.
For the Austrian team has been a significantly positive weekend, both days with 3 skiers in the top ten and today with 7 skiers in the Top 22 positions. 

Meanwhile, Mikaela Shiffrin has finished fifth today. In her second race after a 10-month break, Shiffrin missed the podium in a slalom race for the first time in nearly three years. All 28 World Cup slaloms since January 2017 have been won by either Shiffrin, with 19 wins, or Vlhova.

Petra Vlhova Wins First Slalom of the Season in Levi


Slovakia’s Petra Vhlova picked up the 2020-2021 World Cup slalom season right where she left off the previous one in Kranjska Gora, on the top of the podium. for the fourth consecutive time. It's the second time Vhlova wins on the Levi Black slope in Finland after her victory in 2017.
The season has officially started, and the rivalry between the two Slalom queens goes hand in hand. Only 18 hundredths of a second divided the Slovakian ski star from the American, Mikaela Shiffrin who made her return to the races after 300 days.
Petra Vlhova commanded both runs with confidence. On a course set by her coach Livio Magoni, the Slovakian also posted the fastest time in the second run and extended her advantage over Shiffrin to 0.18 seconds.
"I tried to take this advantage that my coach set the course, and I did it", Vlhova said. "It wasn’t easy, as it started snowing and also the course was a bit destroyed. But I did it and I am really happy. First victory in the first slalom of the season is always good".
"For me, it’s really important to start very well in each discipline. We were always focused on being perfect because we’ve been here for three weeks. My whole team did a great job and without them, I’m not here so thanks to them", said Vlhova.
Both champions look pleased, Vlhova for getting a win under her belt early, and Shiffrin for looking so strong after so long without racing.


Mikaela Shiffrin (USA), as we all know, missed the end of the season after the sudden death of her father Jeff and then the coronavirus pandemic. She missed the traditional season opener at Solden due to a slight back injury, and she then started her season under the Northern Lights with a second-place that is worth a win.
"I enjoy a second place more than I did ever before (...) because I felt I was pushing and having some good skiing. It was the best I could today. I feel I can be more proud of that than I used to be", said Shiffrin.


Elsewhere, Katharina Liensberger (AUT) took the final spot on the podium, one of four Austrians in the top ten.
"I just wanted to show that I can ski well and that I can ski with my heart", said Liensberger, summarizing her performance. "In the flat section, I noticed during training that I had to get the maximum out of my speed. I hope that tomorrow will be even better. I simply took risks on the steep slopes and pulled through the turns. I managed that very well. You just have to take risks and get the most out of it".
Special mention deserves the performance of Magdalena Egger. The 19-year-old three-time junior world champion in Downhill, Super-G and Combination showed a committed drive and finally came in 19th (+3.14). With starting number 61, she had advanced to 21st place in the first run.
"I succeeded in the upper part, but not the steeper part. It has to get better. I wasn't nervous and had already taken a lot of security with me from qualifying", said the Vorarlberg skier analyzing her successful appearance in what was only her third World Cup race. Egger was also confident about the second race on Sunday: "The track is in great condition, so I can fully start the race again tomorrow".

Slalom specialist Anna Swenn Larsson missed the race as the entire Swedish team quarantined after a COVID-19 test for one of its coaches, Ola Masdal, came back positive.

Levi Slalom World Cup Opening Preview

In 2004, the first Alpine World Cup races took place in Levi, a premiere on Finnish soil. Since then, the slalom competitions in the province of Lapland have been a fixed point on the FIS racing calendar.
The last World Cup races in Levi were a battle between three names: Mikaela Shiffrin, Petra Vlhova, and Wendy Holdener. The American, the Slovak and the Swiss are the favorites to win the double date of Levi
Anna Swenn Larsson (4 in 2019, 6 in 2018, 7 in 2017, and did not finish the second run in 2016 after a 10 position in the first run) is the main challenger to the trio.
The Austrians Katharina Liensberger, who finished third in the slalom rank last season, and Katharina Truppe or the Swiss Michelle Gisin are some of those destined to question the dominance of the main favorites in the “Levi Black” slope.

Last season the Austrian Wunderteam made a strong statement in the slalom season opener, putting five women in the top 15, and three women in the top ten despite the absence of one of their top technical skiers, Bernadette Schild. The charge was led by 23-year-old Katharina Truppe, who earned her first career World Cup podium in third. Her teammates, Katharina Liensberger and Katharina Huber, finished seventh and eighth respectively.
Director Christian Mitter of the OESV Team has called up Katharina Liensberger, Katharina Truppe, Katharina Gallhuber, Katharina Huber, Bernadette Schild, Chiara Mair, Franziska Gritsch, Bernadette Lorenz and Magdalena Egger (dominant at the last junior World Championships in Narvik (gold in Downhill, Super-G and combined, with the slalom that has not could play due to the Covid-19 outbreak) for the double slalom in Levi.

The fact that there are two races taking place in Levi this year is something that can determine the results of the race especially on Sunday.

 


Last year, Shiffrin opened the season with a victory in Levi that saw her break the record number of wins. It was Shiffrin's 41st World Cup slalom win, moving one ahead of Ingemar Stenmark's tally of 40, putting her as the greatest slalom skier of all-time. The American Ski Star also became the first woman to win four times in Levi (2013, 2016, 2018, and 2019). Shiffrin was joined on the podium by Wendy Holdener and Katharina Truppe.
Again Petra Vlhova wasted no time in confirming her status as Mikaela Shiffrin's main rival as she took a slim lead over Mikaela Shiffrin in the opening run by 0.13, but she crashed out early in the second run giving the podium space to Wendy Holdener.

 



In 2018 Mikaela Shiffrin won her third reindeer and slalom race at Levi. Shiffrin dominated both slalom runs to finish ahead of Petra Vlhova and Bernadette Schild, who were respectively 0.58 and 0.79 seconds off the winning pace.




Slovakia’s Petra Vhlova picked up the 2017-2018 World Cup slalom season right where she left off the previous one, on the top of the podium. Vhlova turned on the jets to best American Mikaela Shiffrin by 0.10 seconds on the Levi Black slope in Finland. Sitting 0.21 seconds behind Shiffrin’s leading pace after run one, Vlhova powered into the top spot with a hard charge on her second run. Switzerland’s Wendy Holdener also pushed her limits on the second run and was rewarded with a move onto the podium in third place.


2016. Mikaela Shiffrin Wins First Slalom of the Season in Levi

After leading the first run of the first slalom of the season, Mikaela Shiffrin was fourth in the second run but enough to finish ahead of Switzerland's Wendy Holdener and Petra Vlhova, who were respectively 0.67 and 0.75 seconds off the winning pace.

Levi To Host Slalom World Cup Opening This Weekend


The Audi FIS Alpine World Cup 2020-2021 season returns this coming weekend with the Slalom Opening at Levi (Finland).
The World Cup Levi Slalom Opening will take place on 21st and 22nd November with two Slalom races and the following program:

Ladies' Slalom - Saturday, 21.11.2020, starting times 11:15/14:15 LOC - 10:15/13:15 CET 

                           Sunday, 22.11.2020, starting times 11:15/14:15 LOC - 10:15/13:15 CET


Last season Mikaela Shiffrin achieved an overwhelming victory on Levi. The American Ski Star also became the first woman to win four times in Levi, adding to her successes in 2013, 2016, and 2018 and consequently, she earned her fourth reindeer.
Shiffrin was joined on the podium by Wendy Holdener and Katharina Truppe.

 

Thanks to Levi Resort's Snow Farming, the competition slope will be in top condition this year ready to receive the best skiers in the World.
"The weather has been slightly on the warm side lately, but luckily it will not pose any problems to the competition. Special thanks to Levi Resort for enabling snow farming and, of course, for the professional upkeeping as well", says the Chief of Race Petri Tuomikoski.
This exceptionally warm Autumn has brought on even more challenges on the already special arrangement required cup event this year.
"This year we haven’t been able to welcome the competing teams to practice beforehand because the warm temperatures and the current conditions in Levi do not provide the perfect opportunity for practice. This year the competitors will be arriving in Levi only a few days before the actual race", says Tuomikoski.
Last week Levi has passed the final “Snow Control” and receives the FIS approval to go ahead with the races. Women’s alpine skiing world cup FIS Chief Race Director Peter Gerold has shown his approval on the ability and competence of Finnish people in organizing this event, especially considering the challenges with all the special arrangements and warm weather. Markus Mayr (FIS) approves with the amount of snow and gives the needed green light to open the World Cup slalom season in Levi Black.
"We couldn’t be happier to announce, that, despite the challenges that these special and hard times and the warm weather has given us, we can confidently say that the race slope is ready for the competition! I want to thank the amazing and seamless co-operation and work done by the Finnish national ski association, the World Cup Levi organizing committee, and all other people involved to enable this race to be held in these special times", says Gerold.



The public is welcome to the event with a limited amount of tickets for sale on the World Cup Levi Official Site. Every ticket owner will be given 2 pieces of Lumimediacli’s CE-marked approved face masks per day. It's required wearing a mask and following the safety distances in the event. Unfortunately foreign audience is not able to enter Finland and the race this year.
The venue has been newly planned in order to serve a safe and healthy environment for the audience. Different groups such as teams, media, volunteers, and audience are kept apart in their own areas.

The Podcasts You Need To Listen If You Love Skiing



"Podcast" is a portmanteau, a combination of "iPod" and "broadcast".
A podcast is an episodic series of spoken word digital audio files that a user can download to a personal device for easy listening. Podcasting has been considered a converged medium, bringing together audio, the web, and portable media players, as well as a disruptive technology that sets this medium apart from the traditional 20th-Century model of "gate-kept" media and their production tools.
As of January 2020, there are over 1,500,000 active podcasts and more than 34 million podcast episodes (Podcast Insights, 2020). 
Monthly podcast consumers grew by 16% year-over-year cresting 100 million Americans for the first time (Edison research, 2020).
These podcast statistics are completely in line with the fact that podcasts are slowly going mainstream.
One reason for the growth in podcasting is the potential income a popular podcast can earn from selling advertising. According to the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB) and PriceWaterhouse, ad revenue is expected to reach $679 million this year, increasing to $863 million in 2020 and over $1 billion by 2021. Popular podcasts can charge advertisers between $10 to $50 for every 1,000 listeners, approximately two or three times the ad rate for broadcast radio. Many “blue-chip” advertisers now sponsor podcasts and a growing number are producing their own (Forbes, 2019).
