Calgary, Alta. (December 14, 2017) – The alpine, ski cross and para-alpine team all have upcoming races in Europe over the next 12 days.

ALPINE

The men’s tech and speed athletes will be racing over the weekend. Men’s speed is up first with a super-G Friday, followed by a downhill on Saturday on the Val Gardena/ Groeden, ITA track. The track is famous for its ‘camel bumps,’ a difficult series of terrain on the track.

The men’s tech team will race a giant slalom on Sunday in Alta Badia, ITA and will be back looking for points after the guys missed out in Val d’Isère, FRA last weekend. The team will have a short break and then will head to Madonna di Campiglio, ITA for a slalom on Friday.

The ladies have a speed weekend in Val d’Isère, FRA followed by a giant slalom and slalom race in Courchevel, FRA on Tuesday and Wednesday.
