On this week’s episode of Tips and Tales, Sean Higgins and Mackenzie Moran recap last weekend’s World Cup action in Kvitfjell, Norway, the unfortunate race cancellations in Russia for the women, and what we’re looking for in the final World Cup races of the season.

Additionally, NCAA skiing championships kick off today in Stowe, Vermont, with the University of Vermont playing host to the best collegiate teams in the country. Ski Racing Media intern and Dartmouth College student-athlete, Jimmy Krupka, sat down with defending NCAA slalom champion and Swiss World Cup racer, Tanguy Nef, to talk about his time as a collegiate skier.

Last but not least, Sean Higgins has a conversation with U.S. Ski & Snowboard Alpine Development Director, Chip Knight, to discuss last week’s World Junior Championships in Val di Fassa, Italy, and what some of his thoughts are looking towards the future of development.
