The Ski Racing Podcasts We Love To Listen
Updated: Nov 7, 2022
Unfortunately, with the cancellation of the scheduled races in Zermatt- Cervinia, we will have to wait until mid-November, with the Parallel Races to be hold in Lech-Zurs, to enjoy the Alpine Ski World Cup again.
To fill the void we share with you three ski podcasts that we love and help us to increase our knowledge about skiing, set us in a good mood, and allow us to dream about our passion.
Former World Cup and Olympic Racer, Ed Drake shares the ins and outs of World Cup Ski Racing, with Marcel Mathis, Ben Clark, and expert guests to discuss current issues and the breaking stories throughout the season.
Martin Wilson's podcast, the next turn, examines skiing, ski racing, and sport. Guests include athletes, coaches, and forward-thinking figures throughout the world of snow sports. The goal is to take deep dive and conduct open, honest conversations in the pursuit of "better"-- better coaches, better athletes, better parents, better supporters, better advocates, and better fans.
On October 26th they kicked off their third season with Swedish World Cup ski racer Sara Hector. Hector, the reigning Olympic gold medalist in Giant Slalom, won her first World Cup in 2014, and it was seven years before she found herself in that top position again. In this interview she shares her journey through injuries and other obstacles in her career to date. Hector had the season of a lifetime last year, finishing second overall in the World Cup GS standings, and she’s mentally and athletically positioned herself for a brilliant season ahead. As always, Martin, Jeff and Cara share their “Swix Thoughts of the Day”.
And last but not least, one of our favorites. American Downhillers video podcast, presented by Ski Racing Media, with Olympians Doug Lewis, AJ Kitt, Daron Rahlves, and Marco Sullivan sharing their thoughts on each World Cup Downhill stop. They share stories, dissect each course and how to win on it, and give their preview of who will ski their way to victory in each race.
After the cancellation of the Downhills scheduled in Zermatt-Cervinia and until they will publish the first episode of this season we invite you to listen to last season's first one about Lake Louise. The canadian resort will host the first Downhill of the season next in November 26th.
