Eurosport’s winter sports coverage begins this week with the first round of the 2016/17 Alpine Skiing World Cup from Soelden, Austria.

In the final full season before Eurosport broadcasts LIVE coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics, this year’s World Cup takes on a new significance. Skiers from across the globe will be eager to prove themselves as serious medal contenders while fans will have a chance to pick their favourites.

One British skier aiming to make a name for himself in Pyeongchang is slalom specialist Dave Ryding. Last season Ryding became the fourth British skier in the history of the World Cup to qualify for the World Cup Finals. The 29-year-old claimed 17th place at the last Winter Olympics in Sochi but achieved some impressive results in the World Cup last year and will fancy his chances of finishing in the top-10 in 2018.

Another story to look out for this season is Lindsey Vonn’s hunt for the record of World Cup victories. Vonn announced on her twitter page that she would be concentrating on chasing down Swedish legend Ingemar Stenmark’s record of 86 victories (she is currently on 76 wins) rather than pursuing the overall World Cup title.

Eurosport’s LIVE coverage of these rounds will feature commentary from Winter Olympian Finlay Mickel and former British ski champion Nick Fellows.
