Men's World Cup DH Schedule

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Not sure if anyone knows the answer to this one, but I'm trying to figure out why there are no Men's WC Downhill races going on between Feb. 2nd and March 1st.
We've got a GS and Super G (with many DH racers in this group) going on here in Whistler mid-Feb, but no one seems to know why the DH isn't happening. The women have it, but not the men.

Lemme get this straight. You live/work at a heli operation in BC. And you want a World Cup downhill on your doorstep? A men's World Cup downhill, to be precise. You want I should, like, shovel your walk some morning too?

Anyway, just guessing--too lazy to actually check a calendar--but aren't the World Championships scheduled in there somewhere? Also, I would surmise that the schedule usually includes at least one DH-eligible site without a scheduled DH race in case of cancellations elsewhere.

Those are in 2009.

That's a good possibility, thanks!

I can never keep that straight. I'd thought they'd gone to World Championships every non-Olympic year, my bad. No downhills to make up so far this season, I guess you'll just have to go heliskiing!

Since today's Val d'Isere race was just cancelled, we'll have to wait and see if we get one. Besides, World Cup downhillers love heliskiing and the more the merrier, right?

I've always wondered what Bode Miller or Michael Walchofer would look like skiing deep powder. Maybe someday you'll get to see. But I'm hearing that the VdL downhill's gonna be moved to Norway.
