HANOVER, N.H. — Dartmouth senior Foreste Peterson (Berkeley, Calif.) will compete in the giant slalom at the FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia, in an Olympic-qualifying race on Saturday morning. This is Peterson’s second World Cup appearance after making her debut last October in Soelden, Austria.
Peterson will be joined by Americans Mikaela Shiffrin — who won the slalom on Wednesday — and A.J. Hurt among the 73 skiers competing at Podkoren. Racers were able to test the race course today to prepare for the giant slalom, which begins at 9:30 a.m. local time.
Peterson, an NCAA First-Team All-American each of the last two years, won three giant slalom carnival races last year for the Big Green and six in her career with 11 total podiums.
Results will be available on the FIS website following the race.
