RUTLAND – Killington Resort recently received a supportive statement from the Fédération Internationale de Ski, the governing body of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup, announcing the Women’s’ Audi FIS Ski World Cup races in Killington are confirmed.
As scheduled, the races will take place on 30th November and 1 December 2019.
The FIS’ decision is not a mere formality, as in 2016 FIS canceled the parallel men’s races in Colorado and last year the opening races in Austria were rescheduled because of wind from an October snowstorm.
With this announcement, Killington Resort can assure international race teams and ski racing fans that both the Giant Slalom and Slalom races will take place as scheduled on November 30 and December 1.
“The news of FIS approval on racecourse snow preparation has the entire resort excited to host the World Cup and once again bring elite ski racing to the East,” said Herwig Demschar, SVP international business development at POWDR and World Cup local organizing committee chairman.
Killington Resort opened to season pass and express card holders for skiing and snowboarding on November 3 followed by a public opening on November 4.
“Now in its fourth year at Killington Resort, you can expect this world-class event to be bigger and better with an outstanding musical line-up and opportunities to meet and greet the athletes,” said Herwig Demschar, SVP international business development at POWDR and World Cup local organizing committee chairman.
