The historic 68th Kandahar in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, GER races kick off this weekend starting with the women’s downhill, followed by the super-G. Few World Cup race courses have the long and rich tradition of the Kandahar and this weekend Marie-Michèle Gagnon looks to etch her name in the history books. The Bavarian town is known for its unbelievable beauty and Germany’s highest peak, Zugspitze which towers over the town. Mitch will carry the Canadian flag down the classic course where she finished the super-G in 22nd last year. 

After the bright lights of Schladming, AUT the men’s tech team ventured over to Chamonix, FRA for a weekend of slalom action. Erik Read came 16th on this course, in parallel-slalom, last year and he looks to lead the team to the top of the podium. Erik will be joined by Asher Jordan, who is returning from injury, and Justin Alkier, who competed in his first-career World Cup earlier this week in Schladming.

Reece Howden and the Canadian Ski Cross Team are in Feldberg, GER for two races after a winning weekend in Sweden. The event was canceled last year due to lack of snow, and the team is eager to get in the gate and onto the course. Due to Covid-19, there will be no spectators so it will be up to the Canadian contingent to bring the noise.

Reece, who is coming off two wins last weekend will race alongside Brady Leman, who came second on this course in 2019, Carson Cook, Chris Del Bosco, Jared Schmidt, and Kris Mahler. On the women’s side of things Marielle, coming off a podium last weekend, will be joined in the women’s race by Courtney Hoffos, Hannah Schmidt, Tiana Gairns, and Zoe Chore. 

As the World Cup schedules start to wind down ahead of the FIS Alpine World Championships in Cortina d’Ampezzo and the 2021 FIS Ski Cross World Championships in Idre Fjäll, SWE everyone looks to go out on a high, preferably the top step.
