    Icon Coronet PeakIcon 9.00amIcon Free to Watch!

The Alpine Super-G presented by Coronet Peak is the longest of the two race disciplines included in the Winter Games NZ 2022 race programme. Super Giant Slalom (Super-G) is a single run over a long course, which combines the speed of Downhill and some of the technical characteristics of the Giant Slalom. It requires the skier to be very precise at high speeds. It combines a variety of long and medium turns on courses that have vertical drops only slightly less steep than in Downhill.

We will be running two races of Super-G on the 27th of August at Coronet Peak.

  • FIS ANC Alpine Giant Slalom
    Icon Coronet PeakIcon 9amIcon Free to Watch!

The Alpine Giant Slalom presented by Coronet Peak is one of two race disciplines included in the Winter Games NZ 2022 race programme. Giant Slalom consists of two runs over separate courses, which may be on the same slope. Giant Slalom presents a range of long, medium and tight turns, which require strength, and a good sense of rhythm. The course is to be set to make optimum use of the variations in terrain and full use of the width of the hill, to increase the spectacle of the event.

We will be running two FIS Continental Cup Giant Slalom races on both the 28th and 29th of August 2022.
