This weekend, the ladies’ team is in action at the Killington, USA World Cup for a giant slalom and slalom race. The team has already scored World Cup points and are hungry for great results this season. After a successful Nor-Am Cup block at Copper Mountain Resort and Loveland Ski Area, the tech ladies are ready for more World Cup action.
Marie-Michèle Gagnon (Lac Etchemin, Que.) and Erin Mielzynski (Collingwood, Ont.) both stood on top of the Nor-Am Cup podium in Colorado and have already secured points on the World Cup circuit this season. As the team veterans, they’ll be looking to be competitive this weekend.
Laurence St-Germain put down an incredible performance at the Levi, FIN slalom two weeks ago cutting her bib number in half to finish in 17th-place. While Valérie Grenier and Mikaeala Tommy both went out in the giant slalom at Sölden, they both had fantastic splits, demonstrating they will be competitive when they cross the finish line.
With a deep roster of starters, they’ll be lots of Canadians to cheer on this weekend.
Just a few hours south of the boarder, the Killington World Cup will be the closest stop to catch the action for Eastern Canada. For booking details, directions and event schedule, visit: http://www.killington.com/site/to-do/World-Cup
