STAMFORD, Conn. – Dec. 2, 2020 – NBC Sports’ extensive coverage of Winter Olympic sports continues this month with the FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup women’s Super-G from St. Moritz, Switzerland, this Saturday and Sunday at 5:30 a.m. ET live on Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA, NBC Sports digital platforms and Peacock Premium. An encore presentation of Sunday’s race will be presented later in the afternoon at 4:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

Several members of a strong American women’s speed team, including two-time Olympians Alice McKennis and Jackie Wiles and 2018 Olympian Breezy Johnson, are making their season debuts this weekend in St. Moritz.

Two-time Olympic gold medalist Ted Ligety, two-time Olympian Tommy Ford and 2018 Olympian Ryan Cochran-Siegle are expected to compete in the men’s giant slalom this weekend in Santa Caterina Valfurva, Italy. Live coverage will begin Saturday at 7 a.m. ET and Sunday at 7:30 a.m. ET on Olympic Channel: Home of Team USA, NBC Sports digital platforms and Peacock Premium.

NBC Sports’ Steve Schlanger (play-by-play) will call the alpine skiing action alongside former U.S. ski team racer Steve Porino (analyst).

In addition to alpine skiing, NBC Sports and Peacock Premium offer extensive coverage of six additional skiing and snowboarding sports in December, including cross-country skiing, freestyle skiing, snowboarding, Nordic combined, ski jumping and biathlon. Complete schedules can be accessed here.

Last month, it was announced that NBC Sports’ exclusive streaming of winter Olympic sports has moved from NBC Sports Gold’s “Snow Pass” to Peacock Premium, which is available at http://www.peacocktv.com/sports. Peacock Premium is also the exclusive home to all FIS events held in Austria.

In addition to live alpine skiing coverage this weekend, NBCSN will air encore presentations of the 2019 Xfinity Birds of Prey men’s giant slalom (Friday at 1 p.m. ET) and men’s downhill events (Saturday at 12:30 p.m. ET) that took place in Beaver Creek, Colo., last year. Tommy Ford earned his first-ever World Cup victory in the giant slalom.
