Guten Morgen family and friends. It's official, the World Cup season is underway. I arrived in Soelden yesterday for the annual opening to the Alpine season.
We have men's and women's giant slalom races on Saturday and Sunday, but really much of the action happens today and tomorrow with meetings, press conferences and all sorts of hoopla.
Soelden is a pretty cool town. My friend Hank McKee has a great story about it on SkiRacing.com, check it out. I took this photo there two years ago.
