The World Cup may have left town, but the local venues are still hosting high level ski racing.

International Ski Federation races took place during the weekend at Golden Peak, with athletes visiting from all across the U.S. in a college season preview of sorts that was originally expected to be a showcase of mostly high school age athletes.

Being an FIS race, however, it was open to whomever met the International Ski Federation criteria, and athletes such as Ola Johansen, 24, and Alex Leever, 22, stopped by and increased the competition by a margin.

Ski & Snowboard Club Vail hosted the races, which included a pair of slaloms on Friday, Dec. 8, a giant slalom on Saturday, Dec. 9, and another giant slalom on Sunday, Dec. 10.
