A week after the World Cup in Lake Louise, Canada, another men’s downhill race was canceled due to inclement weather. As announced by the World Ski Federation (FIS) on Friday a few hours before the scheduled 6:15 p.m. time, the race cannot take place at Beaver Creek due to strong winds and snowfall.

The weather forecast did not augur any improvement in the scheduled race for the “Birds of Prey”. On Saturday there is another descent into the program, on Sunday there will be Super-G (6pm CET, live on ORF1). The outlook for the race on Saturday is much better.

It is not yet clear if and where compensation for the departure will take place. The first downhill practice session on Tuesday was canceled due to weather, and Otmar Striedinger and Matthias Mayer set the best practice times for Wednesday and Thursday. “I’m used to it, but now it’s very annoying. We certainly won’t get all the races back, that’s annoying for the World Cup as a whole.”

The first World Cup downhill race scheduled for Lake Louise last week had to be canceled due to weather. The downhills in Zermatt/Cervinia had previously been canceled due to lack of snow in the lower area, and the parallel race in Lech/Zürs due to the warm weather and green landscape.
