Another fun opening weekend has come and gone, and with that, another World Cup Event.
The giant slalom and slalom races, the only U.S. stops on the Women’s World Cup circuit, were on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Crowds of spectators watched from the finish area and grandstand, no doubt contributed in part to the sunny weather and somewhat uninspiring ski options available to the public on the rest of the mountain.
On that note, we could use some snow.
If you were around, hopefully you found some time to break from the repeat laps of Dipsy Doodle and Pump House to check out the girls charge down the icy course. Apart from the fact that the American women didn’t fare too well, it was impressive.
Here are some pics from Saturday’s giant slalom you might have missed while getting your epic laps on Silver Bell. Click to enlarge:
