KILLINGTON, Vt. – In June of this year, Vermont’s Killington Resort, the largest ski and snowboard resort in Eastern North America, announced a two year agreement to host the Audi FIS Ski World Cup:
“…Vermont’s Killington Resort, and part of POWDR, and U.S. Ski & Snowboard, the National Governing Body (NGB) of Olympic ski and snowboard sports in the United States, have a two-year agreement for Vermont’s Killington Resort to host the Audi FIS Ski World Cup. Killington’s place on the 2021 Alpine World Cup calendar has been confirmed by the International Ski Federation (FIS). HomeLight, the real estate technology platform transforming how people buy and sell homes, is the title sponsor for the next World Cup at Killington. The HomeLight Killington Cup will take place Thanksgiving weekend from November 27-28, 2021.
As with the last four years of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup, the 2021 and 2022 races at Killington will be broadcast worldwide to more than 60 nations, along with national broadcast coverage across the United States. The event has drawn an increasing number of spectators who converge at Killington each year to cheer on ski racers from around the world. As one of the top three events on the Women’s FIS World Cup tour with spectators peaking at 39,000 in 2018, the event is anticipated to bring millions of dollars in economic impact to the state of Vermont.
“Bringing FIS Alpine World Cup racing back to Killington Resort for the 2021/22 Olympic Qualification season is an incredible opportunity for the resort and the surrounding community. More than just world-class racing and a great music line-up, spectators will enjoy a full weekend of festivities,” says Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain. “Come fall, we’ll utilize every opportunity to build a world-class race venue on Superstar with Killington’s state-of-the-art snowmaking system – positioning us to offer the longest season in the East.”
