The 2013 FIS Alpine Ski World Championships begin Tuesday morning in Schladming, Austria. The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi begin a year from this week (more on that later in the week), so this is a great chance to see the best skiers a year out from the Games. Canada’s Erik Guay is the defending champion in the men’s downhill, while Lindsay Vonn, amid rumours of her relationship with Tiger Woods, tries to re-capture a World Championship after finishing with no gold medals in 2011.
Sportsnet and CBC will have coverage of the Alpine Ski World Championships. Sportsnet will show weekday races, while CBC has coverage on the weekend. Brad Fay and Brian Stemmle will call races for Sportsnet. I have not confirmed CBC’s broadcast crew; however, Kerrin Lee-Gartner is their analyst.
Here is the complete broadcast schedule. All races are also streamed live earlier in the day on Sportsnet.ca or CBCSports.ca.
