The Lake Louise Alpine Ski World Cup is one of the select few that hold both the men’s and ladies speed events on the World Cup circuit and will play host to the first Audi FIS Ski World Cup downhill and super-G races of the season - five in all. This is the only event of its kind in Canada and is broadcasted globally to 173 million viewers.
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.
On 26th – 27th November, the Audi FIS Ski World Cup season was supposed to kick-off in the Lake Louise (Alberta, Canada).
