Ski Federation officials today approved Lake Louise as being in prime condition for the Bombardier Lake Louise Winterstart. The Winterstart is a classic Canadian race, and is known by all to be the kick ass kick off series for the World Cup speed season.

Here’s Chief of Race Darryl MacLachlan: “We are very pleased with today’s decision by FIS and excited about the conditions for the upcoming men’s World Cup races in Lake Louise. We have had excellent cooperation from management and staff at Lake Louise Ski Area as we prepared for today and I also commend the many hours of work put in by the Sled Dogs, our hard-working volunteers, to get us to where we are at.”

Racers from 21 countries will be coming out to Lake Louise for the Winterstart this year as the men’s super G and downhill start it off on November 28th and 29th. The women will race downhill December 4th and 5th and tackle the super G on December 6th.
