Red course ready, blue course ready, courses clear, racers ready… I may be dating myself, but who else remembers watching the World Pro Ski Tour on TV when they were young? Full of heart pumping action it was always a good watch, but then it disappeared for almost two decades. But after resurfacing in 2019 it has garnered new excitement thanks to new sponsors and the same adrenaline induced dual ski racing that we loved. This weekend, the electrifying World Pro Ski Tour (WPST) World Championships are back at Taos Ski Valley, promising three days of heart-stopping, head-to-head ski racing plus a slew of off mountain events that will make it fun for all.
