What is a Parallel Slalom?
The new parallel event is exciting to watch - on a short slalom course two racers go head to head down the hill at the same time. Only the top 32 ranked competitors after a morning single qualifying run get to compete in the afternoon. The parallel slalom event will take place directly in front of the main chalet at Mont Ste Marie, where ski enthusiasts can watch the top skiers battle it out. This is the first time this dual event has ever been part of the NorAm Cup series, and it is the newest addition to the World Cup circuit and the Winter Olympic Games.
"This is a great opportunity to watch world class athletes compete in an event that is exciting and new to the Winter Olympics. These racers are the next generation and the athletes of the future, start following them now!"
