“We are thrilled to expand the World Pro Ski Tour schedule to three events this winter to create more opportunity for ski racers from across the globe. The American ski community is craving more events to see their idols go head to head in dual slalom, the most exciting alpine race format that will also make its debut in the South Korea Olympics,” said Ed Rogers, President of the World Pro Ski Tour.

The World Pro Ski Tour® is a nationwide tour of events featuring the popular “dual” format of alpine ski racing. By placing two athletes side-by-side, spectators on-site and TV viewers consume the most exciting and easiest to understand format in alpine ski racing.
