Lindsey Vonn seeks a three-peat, Mikaela Shiffrin makes an anticipated debut and the men race at Beaver Creek on Sunday, all on NBC Sports Live Extra.
First up is Vonn and Shiffrin in a super-G at Lake Louise, Alberta, on Live Extra.
Vonn, after taking downhills Friday and Saturday, will try for her 70th World Cup victory and her third sweep of a weekend’s races at Lake Louise in the last five years.
Shiffrin will debut at Lake Louise in her first career World Cup speed event. Shiffrin is the world’s best slalom skier and a giant slalom winner but may need to show proficiency in super-G to rival Vonn for the season’s biggest prize — the World Cup overall title.
Later, Austrian Marcel Hirscher will try to win his second straight race in a giant slalom in Beaver Creek. NBC and NBC Sports Live Extra will have coverage of the second run.
Hirscher, the four-time reigning World Cup overall champion, won’t have to worry about Olympic and World giant slalom champion Ted Ligety, who fell in his morning run and failed to finish.
