U.S. Ski Team great Doug Lewis returns to Tips and Tales for the second week in a row and we talk all about this weekend’s World Cup racing with the men in Beaver Creek and the women opening their speed season in Lake Louise. Both Doug and the Ski Racing Media team are here in Beaver Creek for the legendary Birds of Prey races and things are shaping up to be pretty spectacular with favorable forecasts for the weekend and a near-perfect racing surface looking to deliver three days of epic racing on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

We mentioned in last week’s show that Doug will be joining us on Tips and Tales periodically throughout the winter to talk about some of the most iconic stops on the World Cup tour. From Bormio, to Kitzbuehel, to Cortina, Doug has either raced these races himself or seen them enough times throughout his career as an athlete and broadcaster to give us some real insight on just what it takes to come out on top.

To go directly to the discussion with Doug Lewis, skip to the 3:40 mark.

As always, listening is free and in addition to SkiRacing.com, you can also find us on Apple PodcastsSpotify, Google Play, or wherever you get your podcasts.
