Wind, Weather Cancel HomeLight Killington Cup Giant Slalom
Due to inclement weather, the women's giant slalom at the Homelight Killington World Cup on Saturday, Nov. 27. has been canceled. Killington Resort reported 19 inches of new snow in the past 24 hours.
Heavy snow and high winds held off just long enough for the first nine racers to push out of the gate before the jury called an official cancelation. Among the athletes able to take their first run was Olympic champion, Mikaela Shiffrin, along with other top competitors on the women's giant slalom circuit – Slovakia's Petra Vlohva, France's Tessa Worley, Austria's Ramona Seibenhofer, Switzerland's Lara Gut Behrami, and Michelle Gisin, and Italy's Marta Bassino, Federica Brignone, and Sofia Goggia.
Weather, visibility, and some issues with timing led to an extended course hold, and the race never restarted.
Despite adverse conditions and low visibility, Shiffrin commented that the course itself held up well, much better than anticipated by a majority of the athletes. Before the official race cancelation, her plan was to come into the second run with aggression, and put on a good show for the home crowd. Tune into her full interview with NBC Sports above.
Sunday's slalom first run is scheduled for a 9:45 a.m. start.
