In this episode of Ski Racing This Week, we give young Italian slalom star Alex Vinatzer a call to his home in Italy to hear about the situation in the country worst hit by the coronavirus (3:40). Then, we put something together that’s never been done before: Tom Kelly, the unofficial official authority on ski racing history, gives us the entire story of American slalom skiing, from beginning to end (13:20).
