The top male tech skiers in the world will return to the 1960 Olympic Winter Games venue at Palisades Tahoe in Olympic Valley, California Feb. 25-26 for the Stifel Palisades Tahoe Cup—one of four domestic Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cups in the United States for the 2022-23 season, the most in history. Hosting two events, the slalom and giant slalom, Palisades Tahoe will welcome back athletes, spectators, friends and family for the second time since 2017.

With the 2023 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships wrapping up in Courchevel-Meribel, France earlier this week, World Cup skiers are headed stateside. The Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team, including 2023 World Championship gold medal winners River Radamus, Tommy Ford and Luke Winters, are among the U.S. athletes that will race in the series. International athletes will race down the storied Olympic venue track in just a couple of days, including 2022 overall World Cup winner Marco Odermatt of Switzerland, 2023 World Championship slalom champion Henrik Kristoffersen of Norway and more of the World Cup’s best technical skiers.

“We are very excited to welcome back the athletes to the states, especially to Palisades Tahoe, a resort known for its incredible skiing, hospitality and a storied racing history,” said Sophie Goldschmidt, President and CEO of U.S. Ski & Snowboard. “With the World Championships just wrapping up with great success in France, we are excited for the U.S. team to come to the Stifel Palisades Tahoe Cup and be cheered on by fans, friends and family on home snow!”

Palisades Tahoe, formally known as Squaw Valley, has experience in hosting this level of alpine events. In 2017, the resort held the women’s FIS Alpine Ski World Cup, where Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Mikaela Shiffrin took home the win in the giant slalom event. Olympic champions were also crowned at this same venue 63 years ago in the 1960 Olympic Winter Games. The renowned slalom track has been described as one of the toughest and most technical on the World Cup circuit, known for its relentlessly steep terrain.

In addition to the races, there is a strong lineup of events to cater to the spectators and fans. Entertaining the crowds all weekend will be musical artists including international sensation Noah Kahan, American rock band 311 and Black Jacket Symphony feat. Marc Matel.

New to the event calendar this year is the Visa® Lounge. Visa, a U.S. Ski & Snowboard partner for 37 years, will host the first-ever multi-day interactive lounge at a men’s FIS Alpine World Cup, including panels, athlete signings and more. While the Visa lounge will host private events throughout the weekend, the space will be open to the public for an autograph signing with the men’s Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team on Saturday, Feb. 25 from 4-5:00 p.m.
