THE World Alpine Cup continues to provide top-class racing at European and north American ski resorts. With the Winter Olympic Games, which includes freestyle events, in Norway in February and the Cup finals in the United States in March, the season is rich in choice to watch the world's leading skiers.

The British Alpine Championships will be held for the fourth year running at Tignes, France, prior to the Olympics, with the freestyle equivalent early in April at the Swiss resort of Davos.
