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

STAMFORD, Conn. – Dec. 13, 2023 – The Toyota U.S. Grand Prix and Visa Big Air, U.S. Ski & Snowboard events, will be presented this weekend across NBC, CNBC, and Peacock from Copper Mountain, Colo., beginning Sunday, Dec. 17, at 1:30 p.m. ET on CNBC and Peacock with the big air finals, and continuing later that day with the halfpipe finals at 4:30 p.m. ET on NBC and Peacock. Telecasts throughout the weekend will include snowboard and freeski coverage.

Copper Mountain, along with Park City, is the official training center for U.S. Ski & Snowboard athletes through January 2025, as they prepare for the 2026 Milano-Cortina Winter Olympics. Featuring a summit of 12,441 feet and a vertical of 2,738 feet in the winter, the area also boasts an Olympic-sized halfpipe and slopestyle course.

The U.S. Ski team at Copper Mountain this weekend is expected to be led by reigning Olympic slopestyle champion Alex Hall, two-time Olympic halfpipe gold medalist David Wise, and reigning world halfpipe champion Hanna Faulhaber. Faulhaber, a 19-year-old phenom, placed sixth overall in the freeski halfpipe at the Beijing Olympics. Additionally, Hall is a four-time X Games champion while Wise, the 2013 world slopestyle champion, is a five-time X Games winner.

The U.S. Snowboard team will likely be led by Beijing Olympic slopestyle silver medalist Julia Marino, two-time world halfpipe medalist Maddie Mastro, and 2018 Olympic slopestyle gold medalist Red Gerard. With his win in Pyeongchang at age 17, Gerard became the youngest athlete to ever win gold in an Olympic snowboarding event.

Todd Harris will handle play-by-play alongside 1998 Nagano Olympic snowboarder and seven-time Winter X Games medalist Todd Richards as well as 2012 Winter X Games slopestyle champion Tom Wallisch. Four-time Winter X Games medalist Tina Dixon 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.
