Could World Cup skiing come to Anchorage? | Alaska Insight

In February, Anchorage skier Gus Schumacher won a cross-country ski race at the first World Cup event on U.S. soil in two decades.

With Schumacher’s success and World Cup races returning to America, Lori Townsend and her guest, former Olympian and Nordic Skiing Association of Anchorage executive director Kikkan Randall, explore what it would take to bring World Cup skiing to Anchorage.
