On this week’s episode of Tips and Tales, Sean Higgins and Mackenzie Moran will be breaking down the recent World Cup action — or, lack of World Cup action, in some cases — in Val d’Isere, Va Gardena, and Alta Badia, as well as taking a brief look ahead to this weekend’s racing with the women in Lienz, Austria, and the men in Bormio, Italy. We’ll also spend some time getting everyone updated on some of the controversies surrounding the racing in Alta Badia and a few notable injuries that occurred over the weekend, too.

After the discussion, Doug Lewis is back on the show once again to talk with Sean all about Bormio. Doug made a name for himself in Bormio back at the 1985 World Championships, winning bronze in the downhill and he brings a unique first-hand perspective to the venue ahead of the racing on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Stick around, you won’t want to miss it

To go directly to the Doug Lewis segment, skip to the 26:30 mark.
