Killington Cup to return in 2024 

Courtesy U.S. Ski Team—Alpine racer Mikaela Shiffrin is the winningest skier of all time.

Killington Resort is slated to kick off the 2024-25 Audi FIS Ski World Cup races in the U.S., hosting the Stifel Killington Cup for the eighth time over Thanksgiving weekend. Over 40,000 fans are expected to cheer on the fastest female ski racers in the world, including six-time Stifel Killington Cup Slalom champion and winningest skier of all time Mikaela Shiffrin and last season’s overall World Cup winner and two-time Stifel Killington Cup Giant Slalom victor Lara Gut-Behrami. 

The event will take place Nov. 29- Dec. 1, 2024, but the announcement is pending the official confirmation of the FIS schedule on June 6.

Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain said, “Hosting the Stifel Killington Cup is a great way to kick off the ski season in Vermont. Having the fastest female ski racers in the world compete on our slopes is a source of great pride for our entire team here at Killington and Pico. We look forward to having the athletes and fans back again in 2024.”

Sophie Goldschmidt, president and CEO of U.S. Ski & Snowboard said, “While we will not have a final calendar confirmation from FIS until early June, we are extremely excited at the prospect of returning to Killington Mountain for the Stifel Killington Cup in November. This event has been a massive success since it started in 2016 and we know the East coast community will continue to come and cheer on these amazing women ski racers.”
