Alpine World Cups head to Lake Louise and Aspen!
All eyes will be turning to North America where the traditional Audi FIS Ski World Cup Organisers in Lake Louise (CAN) and Aspen (COL) will be hosting the first races of the 2012/13 season in North America.
The fastest male skiers in the world including Austria’ Klaus Kröll and Norway’s Aksel Lund Svindal who captured the 2011/12 speed globes in downhill and super-G respectively, will be racing in the heart of the picturesque Canadian Rocky Mountains on 24th-25th November. The men’s Lake Louise World Cup represents the first speed events of the season and Canada's highest-profile alpine ski race.
The teams have been waking to thick layers of fresh snow in the past few days. “For the weekend, I believe we could see a drop in temperatures and more snow here in Lake Louise,” Uwe Gramann, the professional Metereologist in charge of the forecast for the Lake Louise races said.
A weekend of thrilling action will also be taking place in Aspen, Colorado (USA) with the ladies’ tech races in giant slalom and slalom set for 26th-27th November. A high-class starting field including last year’s World Cup giant slalom and slalom champions Viktoria Rebensburg (GER) and Marlies Schild (AUT) have announced their participation, while persistent health problems continue to make the participation of reigning World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn (USA) uncertain.
After Aspen, the ladies will move on to their first speed events of the season in Lake Louise on 30th November and 1st December, while the men will continue with downhill, super-G and giant slalom competitions at the 2015 FIS World Champs venue in Beaver Creek (USA) from 30th-November-2nd December.
