The Alpine skiing World Cup races scheduled for this weekend in Lech/Zuers, Austria have been postponed for almost two-weeks due to lack of snow and mild temperatures.

The Austrian ski federation announced yesterday (Wednesday 4th November) that the women’s parallel event has been rescheduled for Nov. 26, with the men’s the next day.

The postponement means two slaloms in Levi, Finland on Nov. 21-22 will be the next races on the women’s calendar, where Mikaela Shiffrin is expected to make her comeback.

Shiffrin hasn’t raced since Jan. 26, following the death of her father. She pulled out of the Oct. 17 season opener in Soelden after hurting her back.

The men have no races scheduled ahead of the Lech/Zuers event.
