KILLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Killington Resort says it will be hosting a women’s World Cup giant slalom and slalom race next season.

A Killington spokesman told Vermont Public Radio (https://bit.ly/1GxYjwF ) that the resort received confirmation from the International Ski Federation that its offer to host a race has been approved.

The women’s giant slalom and slalom races will be held on Nov. 26 and 27, 2016.

Aspen, Colorado, typically holds the World Cup event over Thanksgiving weekend. But since it’s hosting World Cup Finals in March 2017, there was an opening on the calendar.

Killington is the first resort in the eastern United States to host a World Cup event since Waterville Valley, New Hampshire, in 1991.
