Overnight Storm Delays Super-G
MAMMOTH MOUNTAIN, Calif. (AP) _ A foot of snow fell overnight, causing the race jury to delay the start of today’s women’s World Cup super-G by two hours.
Snow ended in the early hours and work crews then went to work clearing drifts from the top portion of the super-G course, particularly in a cornice near the peak that tends to collect blown snow.
Wind that accompanied the storm abated, although there were gusts to 20 mph that could also interfere with the race, the last of the North American swing for the women.
Because teams are scheduled to fly back to Europe Saturday, the race would be canceled if it can’t be held today. It would then be rescheduled at another site.
