The United States Ski and Snowboard Association is pleased to see the Alpine World Cup double events in her country. With Killington and Beaver Creek, only two ski resorts were the final part of the World Cup Tour, but there will likely be four in the coming winter 2022/23. According to the association, the FIS has primarily approved the additional men’s races at Palisades Tahoe (February 25/26) and Aspen (March 3-5).
Usually the World Cup entourage stays in Europe at the end of February and the beginning of March. When a temporary calendar with additional dates for the USA became known, there was criticism – also from the Austrian Ski Federation (ÖSV) – due to greater travel pressures and climate concerns.
Most USA Racing in 26 Years
If the World Cup calendar were officially defined in this way, it would include most USA races since the 1996/1997 season. The Alpine Men’s Giant Slalom and Slalom is set to take place at Palisades Tahoe Resort in Squaw Valley, California. A Super-G and two ramps are planned in Aspen, Colorado.
The World Cup calendar will be confirmed at the FIS Conference on 25/26. Probably. Regarding Austrian races for next season – including the Sölden, Kitzbühel and Schladming classics – ÖSV said these were also essentially “confined”. A spokesman said only the details had not yet been determined.
