FIS World Cup: Wengen

Okay, enough bunnies and cute stuff! It’s time to get serious – a weekend of men’s World Cup ski racing at Wengen, Switzerland is upon us. Friday kicks it all off with the Combined followed by Slalom Saturday and the classic Lauberhorn downhill on Sunday. Reposting a favorite vintage photo to celebrate the venerable tour stop.
