The Audi FIS Women’s Ski World Cup re­turns to Killing­ton. Be there with cow­bells on.

Ad­mit­tedly, the sound of cow­bells is not heard nearly enough at U.S. ski re­sorts. But this month, for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive sea­son, they will ring loud and clear at Killing­ton, Vt., as the Audi FIS Women’s Ski World Cup re­turns to the re­sort on Nov. 24. The Grand Slalom and Slalom races are run on the Su­per­star trail on Satur­day and Sun­day, and spec­ta­tors should ex­pect to see all the fe­male stars of the U.S. Ski Team—Vonn, Shiffrin, Man­cuso, Stiegler, and more. Last year 30,000 peo­ple showed up, and just as many, if not more, are ex­pected this year to see if Shiffrin will hang onto her Slalom crown.

But it’s not just a ski race. The event con­sists of three days of par­ty­ing—con­certs, ski movies (in­clud­ing the pre­miere of War­ren Miller’s Line of De­scent), pa­rades, ath­lete cameos, and all sorts of shenani­gans go­ing off in the Fes­ti­val Vil­lage. There’s tick­eted seat­ing in the Grand­stand and VIP ar­eas, but any­one can watch from the free view­ing plat­forms and on the two jumbo screens. Con­sider mak­ing the trip. No mat­ter where you’re com­ing from, it’s closer than trav­el­ing to PyeongChang, South Korea, to see th­ese su­per-rip­pers in ac­tion at Fe­bru­ary’s Olympic Win­ter Games. Just don’t for­get your cow­bells.
