After exciting action on the new and challenging Raptor course in Beaver Creek, Colorado, women’s FIS World Cup alpine ski racing has moved north to Lake Louise, Canada. If the weather cooperates, there will be training runs to monitor today and tomorrow. Fingers crossed that Lindsey Vonn is able to safely return to competition and the rest of the U.S. women’s speed team regains their winning form of last winter.
The men have traded places and are now in Beaver Creek waiting for the snow to stop to train on the demanding Birds of Prey course. Three races will be televised this weekend on NBC – such a treat in this country to have ski racing on a major network. Tune it and enjoy!
