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 :-)

It was looking like another cake walk as the day before until that happened, but looks like clear daylight between Vlhova and the rest at the moment.

I suspect, after a disappointing season last year when she focused on speed, she's now back focusing on slalom training

LL wanted it but the Canadian budget wasn't in place. They did say though that future events might be possible: 24/25?

That was a lot of fun, brilliant results for the brits - and Laurie Taylor was bloody fast before he crapped out!

I'm relatively ambivalent about the protesters in general, but did chuckle at the guy just getting dragged across the snow. Laughing Thought the commentators covered it well.

Women's Giant Slalom in Killington now underway but Eurosport saying they can't get live pictures at the moment due to a satellite link problem. Sad

Edit: Eurosport has abandoned coverage of the 1st run due to the slight technical problem of no live pictures. rolling eyes Here's hoping they get it sorted in time for the 2nd run run at 6pm (UK time).

I didn’t think Petra’s run could be bettered, but that was just so good! I suspect Mikaela keeps a personal tally of those wins which she feels she actually earned - and this is one of them.

I see that today there is due to be a men's and women's Giant Slalom in Mayrhofen (to replace the cancelled ones in Gurgl earlier this season). I'm just passing Mayrhofen in the taxi back to Munich airport as I post this, pity I can't stay and watch the races! Madeye-Smiley

I see the race is being held on red piste 15 down to Unterbergalm from the top of the Horberg area.

@Alastair Pink, Mrs Swskier is on her first day of working at the Unterbergalm today, so has a front row seat. The restaurant isn't opening until Saturday but they're prepping everything ready.

Some well known names there including Katharina Gallhuber.

They were racing on the weekend also, so the piste wasn't accessible to the public.

That race in Mayrhofen is a NJR (National Junior Race), it is several rungs below a World Cup. It isn't restricted to U21 racers but organisers would give preference to them if a race was full.

According to the FIS website Mayrhofen is hosting both NJR and FIS races this weekend (but not World Cup as you say).

Anyone here watch Odermatt’s two GS runs at Val D’Isere? Available on youtube.

He’s on a different level to everyone else. On an incredibly steep pitch with gate traps, he gracefully carved, whilst the others had to improvise/react at times.

Nice of Eurosport to mark key events on the programmes time line when catching up, except that they are absolutely rubbish (totally misplaced) and do tend to give things away by highlighting the provisional leader so not great at keeping the suspense if you didnt know the result.
