    If this picture is of the actual finish I’m surprised that it isn’t double tracked—I would have thought with 15 sec start intervals that the whole course would be double tracked. In looking at the start order there were some pretty good skiers seeded quite deeply in the field—so, two tracks definitely would have helped them.
    Just a thought for next years race.

    Funny you should say that before the race write-ups. This was the only big topic at the coaches meeting. While it was groomed with double tracks they all wanted best-line to 1) make it easier on the skiers, and 2) avoid technique violations from switching lanes.

    The racers all didn’t like not being able to see the new line the next morning, and some mentioned double lines would have helped, especially in the finish.

    Lot of wipe-outs on a couple of corners, none the less.
