U.S. Ski & Snowboard confirms the 2022-23 FIS World Cup schedule in the United States after the 2022 fall FIS meetings. U.S. Ski & Snowboard and its resort partners will host four alpine World Cups, one freestyle World Cup and three snowboard/freeski World Cups—the most ever on U.S. soil.
“We could not be more excited to host eight World Cups at U.S. venues this season. This is a pivotal moment for skiing and snowboarding in the United States, allowing sports fans to watch the best of the best compete on their home mountains and inspire generations to come.”
– Sophie Goldschmidt, President & CEO of U.S. Ski & Snowboard
Alpine World Cups
As is tradition, the 2022-23 U.S. FIS World Cup circuit will begin on the east coast with the women’s alpine team racing giant slalom and slalom at the fan-favorite Killington Cup. 40,000 fans are expected to cheer on the U.S. Alpine Ski Team women, including five-time Killington Cup champion Mikaela Shiffrin.
The week after Killington, the men are in Beaver Creek, Colorado for the annual Xfinity Birds of Prey World Cup for super-G and downhill events starring 2022 Olympic silver medalist Ryan Cochran-Siegle.
After a European stint, the World Cup tour returns to the United States at the end of February for giant slalom and slalom races at the Palisades Tahoe World Cup, with hometown racers and World Cup podium stars Bryce Bennett and Travis Ganong returning to race in front of their home crowd. To conclude the U.S. circuit, the men head to Aspen, Colorado at the beginning of March for the Aspen World Cup speed events on the famed America’s Downhill course.
“Palisades Tahoe looks forward to continuing our tradition of hosting the greatest international winter events and we couldn’t be more proud to welcome the international ski community back to our resort. This year, the resort is hosting a men’s event for the first time since 1969. The event will be held on the same trail used in 2017 for the women’s alpine cup races; the course was described as one of the toughest venues on the women’s circuit. Palisades Tahoe is honored to host a world cup event and eagerly awaits the positive energy brought to the community by a World Cup event.”
Snowboard / Freeski World Cups
Copper Mountain will host two World Cups in November: the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix and the Visa Big Air presented by Toyota. Both events will bring the best competitive freeskiers and snowboarders to world-class big air and halfpipe venues. Athletes, including 2022 Olympic medalists Alex Hall and Julia Marino, will compete.
In February, the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix will return to Mammoth Mountain in California for slopestyle and halfpipe competitions.
Freestyle World Cups
From February 2-4, the Intermountain Healthcare Freestyle International Ski World Cup returns to Deer Valley Resort for its 25th year and will host moguls, aerials, and dual moguls on the famous 2002 Olympic course. In the aerials event, 2022 Olympic champion aerialists Ashley Caldwell, Chris Lillis, and Justin Schoenfeld will be competing, while 2022 Olympic silver medalist Jaelin Kauf headlines the moguls competition.
