STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. — The World Pro Ski Tour kicks off the season this weekend with a pair of races in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, after being halted nearly a year ago due to the global pandemic.

The circuit has been around for a long time and once featured ski icons like Billy Kidd, the Mahre brothers and Jean-Claude Killy.

It disappeared for a while, but was rebranded in 2017.

The one thing that hasn’t changed is the format: Get to the finish line faster than the person competing on the course next to you.

That racer could be a national team member, World Cup competitor, college standout, journeyman or even two-time Olympic champion Ted Ligety.
