KILLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Some of the top women ski racers in the world are going to be at Vermont’s Killington ski resort this weekend taking part in the first East Coast World Cup event in decades.

The two-day event that starts Saturday includes the women’s giant slalom and slalom.

U.S. Ski Team superstars Julia Mancuso, Mikaela Shiffrin and Lindsey Vonn expect to compete against the best women’s alpine skiers in the world.

Killington has been making snow for the event since early October.

The Killington races are the first World Cup races to be held in the Eastern United States in 25 years and the first to be held in Vermont in 38 years.

The races come as Vermont’s ski industry is kicking-off the 2016-2017 ski season.
