Weather wipes out season-opening men's World Cup downhill

LAKE LOUISE, Alta. — The first World Cup men's downhill of the season was cancelled Friday in Lake Louise, Alta., because of heavy snow reducing visibility on the mountain.

Super-G races are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at the resort in Banff National Park.

Weather also hampered men's races at the resort in 2021, when a three-race program was reduced to a single downhill.
