The world Alpine skiing championships’ first scheduled race, Monday’s women’s combined, was postponed due to heavy snowfall in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.
A rescheduled date hasn’t been announced.
The men’s super-G, scheduled for Tuesday, was later postponed to Thursday.
Mikaela Shiffrin entered both the combined (one run super-G, one run slalom) and the super-G among four total events over the two-week competition.
Shiffrin, the defending world super-G champion, went one year between putting on super-G skis from January 2020 to late last month.
The super-G favorite is Swiss Lara Gut-Behrami, who won the last four World Cup races in the discipline.
