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 :-)

Interesting, the first three skiers have skied out after landing the Vertigine(sp?) jump. Who'll be the first racer to actually finish the course? Laughing

Its giving the skiers quite a bit of trouble, 4 of 12 skiing out. All stemming from that Vertingine jump either directly or a little after.

When I saw Ghadina do a pre WSC run on the Vertigine - I thought it was rather flat, wide and boring - but WOW - what a race it has turned out to be.

Huge respect to Baumann and Brodie Seger - looks like the course is getting faster lower down

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?


FIS have released a side by side of Gut and Shiffrin

Looks like the gates above of the vertgine jump are causing some troubles - they look very tightly set, and the last gate on the canalone traverse which caught a few out yesterday on the SG is also having the same effect today.
Will be interesting to see how the tactics and lines are adjusted in tomorrows training.

On a separate note has any one else found the colours are off on some of the cameras - I found the reds to all be pinks yesterday at the start gate hut camera feed for example?

@extremerob, so is this the actual course that will be used as some those gated turns look pretty tight?

@ster, my understanding is they are allowed to change the position and distance of the gates based on the training runs - if the changes are significant the athletes are meant to be allowed a further training run.

I suspect they may open the gates above the vertigine jump- they have a further training session tomorrow which wouldn't make the decision to do so controversial, would be a bit more controversial if they made changes after tomorrows training run

It is just teething problems - either way it is an untested course other than being used for the italian nationals - there will be similar problems with Beijing 2022 - no one will have raced the courses in advance

I’m sure they will change something otherwise they may have more DNFs when the racers go down at full pelt than yesterday’s race, which will start to look a bit silly.

@extremerob, Yep, Red was broadcast as pink. The Austrian red was pink, threw me with the first runner (Austrian) out of the start hut viewed by the camera there.

I went to watch the replay of the men`s Super G on the Eurosport player and the coverage starts about halfway through the race. All the top racers had already finished. rolling eyes

Almost a perfect run from Suter. That’ll take some beating.
