The men’s and women’s Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Teams are gearing up for their World Cup competitions over the weekend in Zermatt-Cervinia, Switzerland/Italy and Levi, Finland, respectively. Superstar Mikaela Shiffrin will be back in action, attempting to repeat in both the slalom events, while the men will be tackling a one-of-a-kind course. The men’s competition in Zermatt-Cervinia will begin at the highest-ever elevation in World Cup history on the Zermatt side in Switzerland, before crossing over to the Cervinia side in Italy, also making it the first cross-country event in history. The competition will kick off Saturday morning at 4 a.m. MST with the first women’s slalom run in Levi, and conclude Sunday morning at 7 a.m. with the second. All events can be watched on the U.S. Ski and Snowboard’s official website and on Outside+, where they will be commentated by NBC’s Steve Porino.
