FIS Alpine Slalom – ANC race 2

Where: Coronet Peak, Queenstown
When: Thursday 31 August, final timings TBC
Cost: Free to watch!

Elite alpine ski racers return to Coronet Peak today for our second FIS Australia New Zealand Continental Cup Slalom.

With fractions of a second between gates this is the most technical of all alpine skiing disciplines. Racers seem to turn on pure instinct, punching poles away with their hands as their bodies dip and swerve from one edge to the next.
