The calendar features two new World Cup venues in Les Angles, France, and Trentino, Italy, and the new discipline of giant slalom.
The season gets underway, as it does every year, on the indoor slopes of Landgraaf, the Netherlands, in November, before athletes travel to North America for editions in Aspen, USA, and Big White, Canada.
In what will be an exciting conclusion, riders then have a whirlwind month in March where they will compete in three World Cups in the space of two weeks, including the World Cup Finals in Trentino.
Last season, winners of the overall World Cup included France’s Cecile Hernandez Cervellon in the women’s SB-LL1, the Netherlands’ Bibian Mentel-Spee in the women’s SB-LL2 and teammate Chris Vos in the men’s SB-LL1, Austrian Patrick Mayrhofer in the men’s upper-limb impaired and Mike Shea in the men’s SB-LL2.
