WHISTLER, B.C. (Feb. 20)- WCSN.com, which has carried the 2008 Audi FIS Alpine World Cup racing all winter, will go LIVE this week for the pre-Olympic test races at Whistler Mountain, beginning Thursday.

The special live webcasts, following WCSN.com's innovative "Ice Cold 12-pack" promotion covering a dozen men's and women's races from Europe in late January and earlier this month, will be in addition to the interval live timing for each race.

The schedule for pre-Olympic test races (all times ET) at Whistler:

Thursday - Men's super G (1:45 p.m. on WCSN.com)

Friday - Women's downhill (1:45 p.m. on WCSN.com)

Saturday - Men's giant slalom (first run - 1 p.m., second run - 4 p.m. on WCSN.com)

Sunday - Women's super combined (super G at 1:45 p.m., slalom at 4:45 p.m. on WCSN.com)

The races are all covered by WCSN's $4.95 monthly subscription fee, which also offers free access to video highlights and breaking news as well as athlete blogs, including the U.S. Ski Team's Julia Mancuso (Olympic Valley, CA) and Marco Sullivan (Squaw Valley, CA), both of whom will be racing at Whistler.


No, that’s not a typo. The Games are notoriously poorly attended. For 2010’s events, just 12 of Whistler and Blackcomb’s 200-plus runs are closed. Better still, Whistler insiders told Skiing that January bookings are lagging, meaning for several weeks leading up to the Games you won’t be fighting for first tracks. Lucky you. Plus, Whistler won our Best Overall Resort in our 2010 Resort Awards.
