Mark your calendars and make sure you don’t miss the first speed races of the 2019/20 FIS AUDI Ski World Cup season, to be held in Lake Louise, Canada on 30th November and 1st December 2019.
Saturday’s positive snow control confirmed that conditions are great and preparations are running smoothly. Lake Louise is ready, once more, to deliver two great races featuring the fastest skiers in the world! The countdown has started, less than two weeks and all of this will be reality!
Darrell MacLachlan, Chief of Race for the Lake Louise Audi FIS Ski World Cup advised that the snow and preparations are on schedule. “The Lake Louise Audi FIS Ski World Cup race organizing committee has reached positive snow control for the men’s downhill and super-G races on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, 2019,” states MacLachlan. “The efforts of our race organizing committee, our Sled Dog volunteers, the Net Crew and the entire team at the Lake Louise Ski Resort means we can confirm the 2019 races are a GO.”
The Lake Louise World Cup marks the opening of the speed events on the FIS World Cup tour. “The cold October and November weather in Lake Louise, along with enhancements in snow making at the Lake Louise Ski Resort, not only allowed for a Nov. 1 opening for the general public, but it allows for our race track to be well established in advance of our first training run, scheduled Nov. 27, 2019,” stated Brian Lynam, Race Chairman, Lake Louise Audi FIS Ski World Cup.
Following the two weeks of men’s and women’s FIS World Cup racing, the Lake Louise Ski Resort will also host the 2019 NORAM races featuring the next generation of alpine speed racers.
