A women’s giant slalom in the Alpine skiing World Cup was postponed on Sunday after heavy snowfall in the French Alps.

The International Ski Federation cited “the inconsistency of the snow surface” at Courchevel for postponing the race to Monday.

Snow fell throughout Saturday’s race won by Marta Bassino of Italy, with Mikaela Shiffrin fourth in her first World Cup giant slalom since January. — AP
