Weekend-ish Viewing Guide for November 30–December 4: Sovereign Lake SuperTour and Lillehammer World Cup


Welcome back to the Nordic Insights viewing guide, your one-stop shop for learning when and where World Cup and SuperTour races are happening and how to watch them (or at least follow along with live timing, for SuperTour races with no streaming). This post will be updated throughout the season.

This week: four days of SuperTour races starting in Canada, today, and three days of World Cup racing starting on Friday in Lillehammer.

Video is from a Tuesday training session.

Live streaming does not seem to be available for this week’s races in Sovereign Lake. Representatives from both the race organizing committee and U.S. Ski & Snowboard told me that there was no streaming available, and I certainly don’t see anything on, say, the host club’s Facebook page. Sorry. Check Zone4 (linked above, or here) for live timing throughout the day, and we’ll have results rundowns here as well after the races wrap up.

New Kappa uniforms are in.

Need help viewing the races from the U.S.? Here’s our full article on how to watch. We’ll also embed video in our race recap stories as much as possible, though this is subject to what gets posted to YouTube following each race. I am deeply hopeful that an anonymous Finnish YouTube user keeps coming through with uploads (thank you, unseen Finn!); stay tuned.
