The World's Fastest Skiers Come to Lake Louise

Add to my moments

Lake Louise Audi FIS Ski World Cup - November 25-26 and December 1-3 

The world’s fastest skiers are coming to Lake Louise, Alberta to compete in the historic Lake Louise Audi FIS Ski World Cup.

Experience the high-speed action of world-class alpine ski racing at Canada’s premiere ski event at The Lake Louise Ski Resort. It’s one of the select few that hold both the men’s and ladies speed events on the World Cup circuit and will play host to the first Audi FIS Ski World Cup downhill and super-G races of the season. 

More than 20 countries will be competing and setting the stage for the upcoming Winter Olympics in PyeongChang over two weekends. Canadian fans will enjoy watching Canadian racers, including Erik Guay, Manuel Osborne-Paradis, Valerie Grenier and Marie-Michele Gagnon.

Fans are encouraged to come watch the event from the Free Fan Cheering Zone which opens an hour before race time - no lift ticket required!   

If you and the family are looking to spend a little time on the slopes before or after the event, you’re in luck! Buy an adult lift ticket at the ski resort and get two free lift ticket for children 12 and under. (Please note: Children must be present.)

Grab a noisemaker and come cheer on the racers!
