The world Alpine skiing championships’ first scheduled race, Monday’s women’s combined, was postponed to next Monday due to heavy snowfall in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.

The men’s super-G, scheduled for Tuesday, was later postponed to Thursday.

Worlds are now slated to open with the women’s super-G on Tuesday at 7 a.m. ET, live on NBCSN and Peacock Premium. A full TV and live stream schedule is here.

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.
