World Champioships being basically meaningless? Everyone will try to peak for the Olympics, leaving the March Worlds as an afterthought, at best.

finally we have a decision...   and as expected, Cortina will host their World Champs in 2021, as originally scheduled...   https://www.fis-ski.com/en/international-ski-federation/

Some hard core revolution happened today in Slovakia.   The Slovak Ski Association is not anymore a National sport federation.     The Ministry of Education, Science, Research

The season's World Cups in North America have been cancelled due to the impacts from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic:

https://www.fis-ski.com/en/international-ski-federation/news-multimedia/news/update-on-audi-fis-alpine-world-cup-north-american-races

 

These World Cups have been cancelled:

Lake Louise Audi FIS Ski World Cup in Lake Louise, CAN, Nov. 28-29 & Dec. 4-6, 2020
The HomeLight Killington Cup in Killington, Vt., USA, Nov. 29-Dec. 1
Xfinity Birds of Prey Audi FIS Ski World Cup in Beaver Creek, Colo., USA, Dec. 4-6

 

From FIS' statement:

"The adapted calendars, to be approved in late September, involve the rescheduling of the Alpine North American competitions at existing locations later in the season.

These preliminarily include events in December, with Val d’Isere (FRA) taking on an additional weekend for the men. The planned giant slalom races will be moved up one weekend to 5th-6th December making room for an added downhill and super-G on 12th-13th December to replace one of the North American weekends.

The women’s tour will add a downhill to its traditional weekend in St. Moritz (SUI) on 5th-6th December. The Swiss resort has picked up a downhill as part of its race weekend to compensate for the Lake Louise race. Additionally, Courchevel (FRA) will host a two-race technical weekend in December."

:GER Viktoria Rebensburg has announced her retirement.

 

From her Instagram:

Spoiler

 

 

"Hello dear friends & fans,
Today is certainly not an easy day for me, as I have decided to end my career with immediate effect after 13 years. I made this decision with a heavy heart & after much consideration over the last few weeks. After my injury in spring & the past two months of snow training, I realised that I would no longer be able to reach my absolute top level.
From a very young age, it has always been my ambition & incentive to compete for success & to inspire you on the slopes.
But now that I have the feeling that I can no longer live up to this, this is a very difficult but inevitable decision for me.
With the memory of my last race weekend in Garmisch and the victory in the downhill, it is a nice time to leave the winter sports stage.
I would like to thank my family, friends & fans as well as the @dsv_alpin with all its coaches, supporters & partners for the wonderful time and the support. Vicky"

OK it will mostly melt, but some will get stored away...
