The Tremblant ski community is very excited to host the Tremblant Women’s Worldcup and invite everyone to join in the celebrations and participate in the event program. The FIS SKI WORLD CUP Women’s Giant Slalom is coming to Tremblant Quebec this December 2 and 3rd and the organizers are is in the last stretch of preparation to welcome this major event and thousands of visitors.
“Standing in the starting gate of a World Cup event, anywhere in the world and across Alpine disciplines, the thrill and experience are mind-boggling. However, being in your own country, on a trail you’ve skied and trained on, racing in front of family, skiing buddies, or die-hard supporters, the challenge takes on a different form. Results are expected from the athletes and their supporters, and the approach to such events requires a specific mindset. Concentration on the task at hand is paramount; the race is the reason for being in the starting gate. You know your competitors, have studied the course from top to bottom, are keenly aware of your strengths and weaknesses, and the hill is familiar. Nothing should surprise you; you’ve conquered steeper courses. Before the 3-2-1 go, be happy and don’t disappoint yourself. You’ve trained all your life for this moment; go for the win, nothing else. Trust your instincts; it’s all about you. Making this race about you isn’t selfish; winning is everything, losing is not a steady job.” says Peter Duncan, a local legend and former Olympic competitor.
Duncan’s comments on The Flying Mile, “This race will be lost or won on the flatter section. The Flying Mile, as seen by a former racer, is divided into three sections. First up: the start section, which is relatively steep and tricky. Why tricky? The surface on the steepest section changes angles within gates. Should you come out of your turn a bit too low, you lose speed, and it taxes your momentum going across the second section: the flat. The trick is to accumulate speed from the first steep section and ride a flat ski, or float if you will, through the mid-section. Finally, attack the last pitch as if there’s no tomorrow. You can recoup some speed before the finish line. Turn your head as you cross the finish line and check your time. If your results bring a smile , you should be satisfied with your effort. As for the resort, hosting a World Cup automatically adds instant credibility. Even though Tremblant has been around for a good while, the event reminds its faithful clientele that the resort is still very much involved in the ski business and shows the world that the mountain still attracts the best women ski racers on the planet. Congratulations to the organizing committee and a big hand of applause for the Volunteers.”
