not so great at Killington - Tessa Worley leading, then the weather intervened and it’s cancelled
half of the coverage looked like this

[too cold and snowy for Tessa to sit there]

meanwhile there’s a sucky Warren Miller documentary that popped up


a bit of HH product placement

Poor guys shoveled so much but by 930 am the jury decided it was not possible to achieve safe course conditions in time for the 12:15 start. Snow continues still, borderline rain. Two of our timing guys drove from Whistler to Golden yesterday and then skied at Kicking Horse today. Had a beauty powder day on no base.

First time out on course this morning. So much snow, and so heavy. Up near the top of the ladies' course there's 30-50 cm. No choice but to bring in groomers, open up B nets and push it out. Huge amount of work to do to get a training run off tomorrow, and there's another system due in 2 days. Jury will be faced with a difficult decision. Normally you'd opt to run from a lower start so there's less track to clean, but if the incoming system forces cancelation of the second and third runs, then the race has to go from the start they used in the one completed training run.

There will be much agonizing over weather forecasts tonight and in the morning.

Looks like the pattern is set already for the rest of the season. Wonder who else will challenge for the overall? Gut-Behrami?
the later race at Killington with Shifffin, Vlhova and Holdener on the podium has been the pattern for several years now, in different versions of that order
Wendy had some major issues with her hands this year, just now back in action

I thought Holdener fell away somewhat last year from her perennial third step of the podium spot but looks like she's back in the slalom.

There are the Italians in GS and then Gut-Behrami in the speed events.

I think the big globe will be contested between Petra, Mikaela and Lara.

Good day at the Lake today, a completed training run from the top. Monster effort overnight with groomers and again from course crew from sunrise to the 1 pm start. Course held up well despite overall soft conditions.

Snowing again now, up to 50 cm forecast. That might be the only training run they get.
