Just signed up for timing crew men's week at LL in November got me jazzed so I thought I'd start the thread now.

Word on the street is the LL men's event will get the same schedule as the women do - 2 DH + 1 SG. To be confirmed by FIS.

Abundant confidence in the west with vaccine programs rolling out quickly. Alberta government is particularly expansive and has all but guaranteed the Calgary Stampede will go ahead in July. Not sure what the race will look like for us volunteers - shared accommodations and communal cooking seem like concepts from another world. Six months is a long way off.

Nearly there! Sölden races this weekend.

Meanwhile Hahnenkamm committee have announced increase in prize money. Total prize money for the weekend will be €1,000,000 with the winner of each event (SG, DH, SL) getting €100,000, 2nd €50,000, 3rd €25,000 etc. Interesting that while the most prestigious one is the DH the prizemoney for all 3 is the same.

Season is about to start. Less than 30 mins away. Weather looks good.

Handy backup, but English coverage. I'll stick with the Austrian coverage :)
English commentator was awful, I almost fell over when he said his name at the end of the coverage and I googled him and found out that he could, in fact, actually ski.


Had 9 SG points at one stage which is pretty handy, but he spoke like he was a cycling commentator who skied recreationally and was chucked in the box.
