The 2016 event broke attendance records, and we are ready to welcome everyone back for another year of record-breaking races! The Killington Group is excited to help host you and your family as you watch the skiers compete for the cup. Our Killington vacation rentals are perfect for relaxing and warming up after the day’s activities. The event will be full of fun and excitement, so it is important to know where you can rest and prepare the days ahead.
The FIS Alpine Ski World Cup is an international circuit competition of alpine skiing. Competitors strive to achieve the best time in two disciplines: slalom and giant slalom. Both slalom and giant slalom involve skiing between poles or gates. Salmon is spaced closer together while giant salmon is set farther apart.
A local fan favorite, Mikaela Shiffrin, will be back again to compete in Killington Vermont. Mikaela Shiffrin attended Burke Mountain Academy in Vermont and grew up to become an American World Cup alpine ski racer with the United States Team. She is the reigning Overall World Cup champion and the reigning Olympic and world champion in slalom. Last year, she finished fifth in the giant slalom at Killington in her first World Cup race but returned the following day to take first-place in the slalom, and we are ready to cheer her on once again.
The World Cup races take place on the Superstar trail, finishing in the heart of the festival village. As racers cross the finish line, meet them throughout the base area. The festival village is accessible to everyone and offers excellent views of the lower race course with two screens showing the upper trail. Like the 2016 event, general admission is free! Enjoy food and drink vendors, concerts, and fantastic skiing!
