Alpine skiers impressed with 2018 Olympics downhill course

Berlin (dpa) - Alpine skiers were Wednesday raving about the 2018 Olympics downhill course in South Korea where they will have World Cup races on the weekend.

"This hill looks amazing! Perfect man made snow, clear skies, and cold temps! This is going to be fun!" American skier Travis Ganong said on Instagram after an inspection of the short 2.,650-metres course in Jeongseon.

The 2014 Olympics silver medallist Christof Innerhofer also took to Instagram to praise "perfect winter conditions on the slope," and the Austrian team tweeted "very good conditions."

Training runs for Saturday‘s downhill start Thursday and a super-g is scheduled for Sunday in the first races on the course for the 2018 Games in Pyeongchang.

They are the first alpine World Cup events in South Korea since 2006, and the men will also hold the first races in Japan in a decade the following weekend.

Alpine skiers are not the only ones leaving Europe in the second half of the season.

Biathletes are in Canmore, Canada, for the first World Cup races there since 1994 from Thursday onwards, and then return to Presque Island, Maine, the following week for the first time in five years.

Nordic skiers had their traditional ski-jumping World Cup weekend in Sapporo, and will also conclude the cross-country season with the maiden edition of the Ski Tour Canada stage race March 1-12 in Gatineau, Montreal, Quebec City and Canmore.
