Alpine skiing TV, live stream schedule for 2022-23 World Cup season – NBC Sports

NBC Sports and Peacock combine to air live coverage of the 2022-23 Alpine skiing season, including races on the World Cup, which starts this weekend.
Coverage begins with the traditional season-opening giant slaloms in Soelden, Austria, this Saturday and Sunday, streaming live on Peacock.
The first of four stops in the U.S. — the most in 26 years — is Thanksgiving weekend with a women’s giant slalom and slalom in Killington, Vermont. The men’s tour visits Beaver Creek, Colorado the following week, as well as Palisades Tahoe, California, and Aspen, Colorado after worlds in Courchevel and Meribel, France.
NBC Sports platforms will broadcast all four U.S. stops in the Alpine World Cup season, plus four more World Cups in other ski and snowboard disciplines. All Alpine World Cups in Austria will stream live on Peacock.
Mikaela Shiffrin, who last year won her fourth World Cup overall title, is the headliner. Shiffrin, who has 74 career World Cup race victories, will try to close the gap on the only Alpine skiers with more: Lindsey Vonn (82) and Ingemar Stenmark (86). Shiffrin won an average of five times per season the last three years and is hopeful of racing more often this season.
On the men’s side, 25-year-old Swiss Marco Odermatt returns after becoming the youngest man to win the overall, the biggest annual prize in ski racing, since Marcel Hirscher won the second of his record eight in a row in 2013.

Mikaela Shiffrin‘s World Cup season may be defined by a busy stretch of eight technical races over 15 days, beginning this week, live on Peacock.
Shiffrin goes into the first race, Tuesday’s giant slalom in Semmering, Austria, five World Cup victories shy of Lindsey Vonn‘s career female record 82. Semmering hosts another GS on Wednesday and a slalom on Thursday.
Shiffrin won four of the last six World Cup races held at the venue dating to 2016.
This season, Shiffrin has three victories in nine starts, taking back-to-back slaloms in Finland to open the campaign and then winning the most recent race, a super-G in Switzerland on Dec. 18.
She owns a 105-point lead in the standings for the World Cup overall title, the biggest annual prize in ski racing, through 12 of 39 scheduled races. The season runs into late March with a break in February for the world championships in France.
Shiffrin is tied with Vonn at four overall titles, second-most in women’s history behind Austrian legend Annemarie Moser-Pröll‘s six.
She can take steps toward her fifth overall crown in this upcoming run of eight combined giant slaloms and slaloms through Jan. 10, all at venues where she won before: Semmering, followed by Zagreb, Croatia (four victories), Kranjska Gora, Slovenia (two) and Flachau, Austria (four).

Austrian Johannes Strolz fell out of a World Cup slalom in Italy on Thursday night when he skied over a pole from an earlier gate that was rolling down the course.
Video is here.
Strolz, who took combined gold and slalom silver at the Olympics, was on his second run in Madonna di Campiglio. He tied for sixth in the first run.
Swiss Daniel Yule went on to win the race.
Austrian media reported that gates were dislodged 11 times across all racers due to defective screws. Strolz said he was annoyed that he didn’t get a re-run, but accepted the decision based on rules.
The incident was reminiscent of a night slalom at the same venue in 2015, when Austrian superstar Marcel Hirscher was nearly hit by a falling drone on his second run en route to finishing second in the race.
Strolz on Friday reposted video of his run on Instagram with a bit of humor.
