How to Watch the Killington World Cup and Racing All Season Long
11.22.2017 | Nastar Editor
Olympic champion Mikaela Shiffrin will hit the slopes this weekend for the first domestic FIS Alpine World Cup of the season at Killington Resort in Vermont Nov. 25-26. NBC Sports Group will present comprehensive coverage of the event which includes women’s giant slalom and slalom.
Shiffrin won last year’s slalom event in Killington and took fifth in the giant slalom. She’s looking for her first win of this season in either discipline after finishing fifth at the giant slalom opener in Soelden, Austria, and second at the slalom opener in Levi, Finland.
NBC’s coverage begins Saturday at 3 p.m. ET with runs 1 and 2 of the women’s giant slalom, followed by live coverage of the women’s slalom on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET. Dan Hicks will call the action from Killington, joined by analysts Bode Miller, the most decorated U.S. Olympic skier in history, former World Cup skier Steve Porino, and reporter Carolyn Manno.
NBC, Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA, and NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app will combine to present coverage of this weekend’s event. For more information on the Xfinity Killington Cup, including a detailed event and TV schedule, visit usskiandsnowboard.org.

So how do you watch for the rest of the season you ask?
This is a loaded question but one that can be answered simply with a little bit of patience and most likely, with the willingness to buy one or two subscriptions that you might not already have. The good news is that there are many ways to watch ski racing in the U.S. The not as good news is that it takes a bit of digging, but it can be done. Don't forget that this digging will be worth it because you will need these very same channels for the Olympics in Pyeongchang 2018 this winter. To watch the coverage, fans will need subscriptions to NBCSN and Olympic Channel through their cable or satellite provider.
U.S. fans should get a subscription to Olympic Channel, Home of Team USA, from their cable or satellite provider to enable viewing on TV, web or mobile app. Olympic Channel is readily available from nearly all cable and satellite providers.
The Olympic Channel, Home of Team USA, TV channel will be the primary home of broadcasts with most planned live (some on same day delay).
OlympicChannel.com will be the primary home for live streaming.
Some higher-profile events will air on NBCSN (separate subscription). Those events airing on NBCSN will be live streamed at NBCSports.com and on the NBC Sports mobile app.
