KILLINGTON — Four-time HomeLight Killington Cup slalom victor Mikaela Shiffrin will compete against the best women’s technical alpine skiers in the world at the 2021 HomeLight Killington Cup event this weekend.

Shiffrin, a two-time Olympic champion, has won 45 World Cup slaloms. She shares the lead in the overall World Cup standings with Slovakia’s Petra Vlhova, each with 260 points after the first six races.

“The Northeast’s passion for ski racing runs deep and after a year hiatus, the entire community is excited to welcome back world class alpine skiing to Killington. The athletes, fans and volunteers bring a level of energy that is unmatched from anything else we experience at the resort,” says Mike Solimano, president and general manager of Killington Resort and Pico Mountain.

Killington will host free concerts on the Bud Light Seltzer stage throughout the weekend featuring O.A.R., DJ Z-Trip and G Love. O.A.R., who previously headlined the 2016 World Cup, will headline Saturday’s event. Hailing from Maryland, O.A.R. has spent more than 25 years touring together, selling out New York City’s Madison Square Garden twice and the Red Rocks Amphitheater a dozen times. The group’s three most recent albums debuted in the Top 15 on the Billboard Top 200 list.

“It’s exciting to come back together and celebrate ski racing as a community again,” says Herwig Demschar, chair of Killington’s World Cup Local Organizing Committee. “In addition to an already action-packed, fun-filled weekend of ski racing, Killington will offer entertainment and a robust Festival Village while keeping the health and safety of guests top of mind.”

New this year, a percentage from all ticket options benefit the Killington World Cup Foundation which supports athlete hospitality and provides grants to bolster winter sports infrastructure and access to winter sports throughout the region.
