Highlights: Alpine Skiing World Cup returns to Val d'Isère this weekend. World champion Clément Noël and Alexis Pinturault will be there. Women's World Cup will be held in St. Moritz, Switzerland. Mikaela Shiffrin currently leads the overall standings, ahead of Petra Vlhova and Laura Gut-Behrami. The events will be broadcast on Eurosport 1 and L'Équipe. The men's giant slalom and the women's super-G will take place on Sunday.


After the cancellation of the Beaver Creek races last week due to weather, the Alpine Skiing World Cup is back on track


Weaned from competition against their will since the beginning of winter, the best skiers in the world should, barring disaster, be able to return to the slopes this weekend in Val d'Isère. A giant slalom on Saturday and a slalom the next day are planned. Leading the French delegation, Alexis Pinturault and world champion Clément Noël will be there, as will the winner of the last big crystal globe, Marco Odermatt.

It's hard to estimate the strength of the starters at the moment, as they have not been able to show themselves in recent weeks. Race cancellations have indeed followed one another, due to capricious weather: too much wind in Sölden in October, snowstorm in Zermatt at the beginning of November, snowfall and gusts of wind in Beaver Creek last week... In the end, the men have only been able to compete in one slalom since the start of the season, won by Manuel Feller in Gurgl. In France, the cadors should finally be able to launch their season.

At the same time, a round of the Women's World Cup will be held in St. Moritz, Switzerland. As the skiers were less affected by bad luck, this will already be the fifth of the season. With two victories in the slaloms in Killington and Levi, Mikaela Shiffrin currently leads the overall standings, which she has already won five times, ahead of Petra Vlhova and Laura Gut-Behrami.
