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.

Following a cancelled men’s Lake Louise Alpine Ski World Cup, the weather turned and with colder temperatures the race organizing committee, along with the full resources of the Lake Louise Ski Resort, were able to make enough snow for the ladies Audi FIS Ski World Cup downhill and super G races. The races will kick off on Friday, 2nd December with a downhill race, followed by a second downhill on Saturday, 3rd December and super G race Sunday, 4th December 2016.

The tireless work of the volunteers continues to be the backbone of the Lake Louise Alpine Ski World Cup. From installing safety systems and fencing, to prepping the racetrack for the world’s fastest skiers, the team has been working overtime to achieve a positive snow control.
