Aspen/Snowmass, CO. — The women's Alpine FIS World Cup circuit returns to Aspen/Snowmass with three races Dec. 9-11, 2005, for the Aspen Winternational. The women will race super G, giant slalom and slalom on Aspen Mountain's legendary course.

"We're excited to bring the women back to Aspen as they prepare for the Olympics, said John Rigney, Aspen Skiing Company managing director of event marketing. "The whole community is excited and has been tremendously supportive of World Cup racing and the surrounding activities.

Racing kicks off on Friday, Dec. 9 with the women's super G, followed by the women's GS on Saturday, Dec. 10 and the women's slalom on Sunday, Dec. 11. An entire weekend of events and activities are planned around the races including a free Hi-Fi Concert, fireworks and festivals.

"Aspen has proven time and again their ability to hold world-class events, and these December races should jump-start our buildup to the Olympics in Torino two months later," said Annette Royle, U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association vice president of events. "We're excited to be returning and we know it will be a great show for fans of ski racing, and an outstanding pre-Christmas boost for Aspen."

NBC and the Outdoor Life Network will offer network coverage of the events, and international distribution will be included as well. A typical U.S. World Cup is broadcast to more than 40.8 million international viewers in 17 different countries. In addition, 1.9 million American viewers are expected to tune in to watch the events.
