FIS Australia New Zealand Cup (ANC) Super G, is a ski alpine race discipline where athletes have one run through a course with the best time used to determine the winner. The Super G course is longer than a GS course and is therefore an even greater test of each skiers ability to turn whilst skiing at high speed. For our para athletes there will also be two exciting WPAS Southern Hemisphere Cup Super G’s held during the first week of the Games.
FIS ANC Giant Slalom sees athletes contesting over two runs on two courses (the run is reset after everyone completes run one) with the athletes combined time used to determine the winner. In Giant Slalom events the gates are further apart to test each skiers ability to turn whilst skiing at medium speed.
FIS ANC Slalom gives the racers two runs on two courses like the GS with the athletes combined time used to determine the winner. In Slalom events the gates are close together to test each skiers technical skiing ability.
The remaining two WPAS Cup races, the WPAS Southern Hemisphere Cup Slalom and Giant Slalom, will be held just over the Crown Range at Cardrona Alpine Resort.
Alpine Skiing is always a thrilling spectator sport so make sure you come and watch as world-class Alpine athletes fly down the course, weaving and turning between the gates as they vie for the fastest time.
