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 :-)

The FIS Ski WC 2021/22 Thread + Winter Olympics Beijing 2022

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead


Given the success of last years thread, and with Sölden just five weeks away it is time to start building some excitement and to get the 21/22 thread going. For all the avid WC ski racing fans that contributed to last year's successful thread welcome back and to all newcomers welcome to the white circus Very Happy

We have an Olympic year on our hands, with medal races in Yanqing (Beijing), China on a hill that has not been raced before.

We will also see the tour make its way back to North America following the travel restrictions due to covid last year - and as last year - the combined events will not feature on the WC - though there will be a combined event at the Olympics.

Where to Watch

Shocked Shocked Shocked Shocked

UK + Europe:
https://www.eurosportplayer.com/ - signup required £6.99 per month, annual options available - looks like they are moving to the discovery+ platform not sure if you now get more than just eurosport player in the package.

Alternative is to sign-up to Eurosport through Amazon - you can only access through Amazon video to watch not through the Eurosport player - they have in the past run offers for £0.01 per month new subscriber promo.

If you're in Europe the below broadcasters cover the races, otherwise a VPN will be needed for access - they are all free to view Cool

@ster, yeah - should have done it last year - before the "season" started - but didn't get round to in time - new year, new name.

Speaking of Alice Robinson and Sofia Goggia have both picked up new helmet sponsors - no surprises!

Really looking forward to this seasons racing. Just a reminder that Eurosport have for the last two years sold a full years subscription for half-price (£19.99) on Black Friday.

Would love Dave to win a Gold this season, with a top 5 finish to boot!

interesting that this seems to have gotten the green light - recalling there was a lot of earlier athletes voicing concerns against this due to fatigue given the altitude and course length as well as concerns about the wind!

Sounds absolutely bonkers if you ask me - but lets see if this happens next season Very Happy

I love it, provided the legit concerns about weather are respected.

If we are ever going to increase interest in ski racing beyond ex racers and basically nobody else (at least over here) we need to try stuff. Book it and see what Mother Nature brings us. Lots of races at much lower elevations get cancelled due to nasty weather.

Wendy Holdener is to miss Soelden

Quote:
Holdener injured herself during fitness training on Monday when she fell on both hands from a training device. The immediate extensive radiological investigations at the Hirslanden Clinic revealed fractures of the navicular bones on both hands, which do not have to be operated on.


as will Tommy Ford who is still recovering from his nasty crash 3-gates from the line in Adelboden last season

To get pumped up for the coming WC ski season

RedBull have just launched a miniseries that followed Marco and Loïc as they battled it out on the WC ski circuit last season...

Quote:
Marco Odermatt and Loïc Meillard are rising stars within the Swiss Alpine Ski National Team. We get exclusive access, following them around the globe as they train, compete and enjoy their free time.

BTW, I think I'm correct in saying that if (like me), you subscribe to BT Sports AND Sky Sports, BT will chuck in Eurosport gratis.
