NBC Sports to Present 10 Domestic FIS World Cup Events During 2023-24 Season Across NBC, Peacock and CNBC

STAMFORD, Conn. – Nov. 30, 2023 – The Xfinity Birds of Prey FIS Ski World Cup event will be presented this weekend across NBC, CNBC, and Peacock from Beaver Creek, Colo., beginning Saturday at 2 p.m. ET on CNBC and Peacock with the first run of the men’s downhill.

Since its creation in 1997, the Birds of Prey racecourse on Beaver Creek Mountain has been considered one of the most challenging in the United States. Featuring a vertical drop of 2,470 feet (757 meters), the course hosted both the 1999 and 2015 editions of the World Championships.

The U.S. Ski team at Beaver Creek is expected to be led by 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Super-G silver medalist Ryan Cochran-Siegle along with fellow Winter Olympians River Radamus, Bryce Bennett, and Jared Goldberg.

This weekend is expected to feature a competitive international field, headlined by defending Birds of Prey downhill and Super-G champion Aleksander Aamodt Kilde (Norway) and runner-up, in both events, Marco Odermatt (Switzerland). The 2022 Beijing Olympic giant slalom champion, Odermatt is coming off a 2023 season that saw him win world championships in both downhill and giant slalom. Kilde, a two-time Olympic medalist, took home the silver medals in downhill and Super-G at the 2023 World Championships.

Steve Schlanger will handle play-by-play alongside 1998 Nagano Olympic Super-G champion Picabo Street and former U.S. Ski Team member Steve Porino. Heather Cox will serve as an on-site reporter.

NBC Sports’ 2023-24 FIS Alpine Ski World Cup schedule spans two continents and three U.S. states and is highlighted by the prestigious Hahnenkamm race in Kitzbühel, Switzerland on Jan. 19-21. One of the oldest ski races in the world, the Hahnenkamm is also one of the most challenging. Home to the world-famous Streif course, it includes a 3,000-foot drop and sees skiers regularly top speeds of over 90 miles per hour. Daron Rahlves is the only American to ever win the Hahnenkamm World Cup downhill (2003).

Additionally, NBC Sports will present an elite lineup of domestic World Cups, including Palisades Tahoe, Calif. (Feb. 24-25), and Aspen, Colo., (March 2-3). A full schedule featuring FIS Alpine Ski World Cup and U.S. Ski & Snowboard events is below.
