For the first time in nearly 50 years, World Cup ski racing will return to Squaw Valley March 9 – 12, 2017. The Audi FIS Women’s Alpine World Cup at Squaw Valley will bring Olympic champions like Mikaela Shiffrin and Squaw Valley’s own Julia Mancuso to the legendary Red Dog run with the competition consisting of a women’s giant slalom on Friday, March 10 and a women’s slalom on Saturday, March 11.
Both races will be held on Red Dog run, the same course as the women’s slalom and giant slalom events of the 1960 Winter Olympics and the 1969 World Cup. With over 1,200 feet of vertical drop in the giant slalom and nearly 700 feet in the slalom, Red Dog run is full of excitement and challenges, including fall-away pitches, side hills and bank turns, and is expected to be one of the more difficult courses on the tour.
