Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Who is going to be commentating on bbc feed? Had a quick listen but no one was speaking just ambient noise. At least the guys on Eurosport are filling in and Eurosport is running at over 10 seconds ahead of the bbc “live” stream.

They are going to lower the start to reserve start position to get below the fog.

Start time is now 2pm (CET), 1pm UK. Seems ambitious but hopefully doable.

I hope they manage to run the Womens Super G.

The problem is the fog level will now be descending becasue the ambient temperature is falling because it's now past midday.

Awesome. Thanks.

Lara GB seems absolutely unstoppable this season. Didn’t expect her to be quicker than Shiffrin in GS though!

Looks like its done and dusted. L GB looked really smooth all the way down. Apparently Shiffrin has not skied a GS all season and has only had 4 days training.

I see there’s a Kenyan skier st 37?

Has the bib order changed since the postponed race on Tuesday? Alice Robinson (one for the future I reckon) was supposed to be in 22, but don’t think has raced yet.

That’s a shame. Wonder why. There’s not a giant slalom for a while yet.

Looks like the Kenyan skier got a DSQ - not sure what that was about - anyone picked up on this from the commentators?

Also it appears the the BBC are covering most if not all of Cortina:

Yes DSQ on the official results. She did come close to missing a gate near the bottom but seemed ok. And I didnt hear the commentators on Eurosport at the time pick up on anything untoward. So don’t know what thats for.
