We enter the final stretch of the season with many things to decide, especially in the case of Women.
After the cancelation of the Downhills in Chamonix the Men's calendar in February has a total of seven events scheduled, one Downhill, one Super-G, two Giant Slalom, and three Slalom.
The Men's Overall, Super-G, and Giant Slalom standings have a clear leader on Marco Odermatt. But with only the speed events of the Finals in Saalbach to be held after Kvitfjell, the Crystal Globes in Downhill and Super-G will probably be decided this month.
Leading the Overall, Downhill, Super-G and Giant Slalom standings, Marco Odermatt is on track to become the first man since Hermann Maier won the Overall, DH, SG, and GS Crystal Globes in 2001.
The Women's calendar in February has a total of seven events scheduled after the cancelation of the races in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, two Downhill, three Super-G, one Giant Slalom, and one Slalom.
With only three Slalom races remaining the 8th Slalom Crystal Globe looks like is clearly in the hands of Mikaela Shiffrin (she had a lead of 228 points over Lena Dürr). But with Shiffrin's injury, the Overall is a little more open with everything to decide on the Downhill and the Super-G.
Update 05.02.2024: Unfortunately, Sofia Goggia is seriously injured during training in Pontedilegno-Tonale and the season comes to an early end for the Downhill dominator, according to "La Gazzetta dello Sport".
In a season with no Winter Olympics or Alpine Ski World Championships, the weeks in February give the opportunity to organizers who do not always manage to be included in the calendar.
The Women's World Cup revisits some ski resorts in February that were missing last season, such as Garmisch Partenkirchen (Germany) with speed disciplines, and return to Val Di Fassa (Italy), which had been missing for a few years.
The 2022-2023 season Finals venue, Soldeu El Tarter (Andorra), will host a Women's Giant Slalom and a Slalom on February 10th and 11th of next year.
Sadly, after the cancelation of the races, the Men's World Cup will not see the return of one of the calendar classics in February with a double Downhill in Chamonix. The last time a Downhill was held on "la Verte des Houches" in the Mont-Blanc Valley was in 2016.
Palisades Tahoe will once again welcome back World Cup racers this winter. One of only four U.S. resorts featured on the Audi FIS Ski World Cup circuit this season, Palisades Tahoe will host Men’s Slalom and Giant Slalom events on the Red Dog course.
