Gold Medalist Ted Ligety & More to Compete at This Weekend's FIS WORLD CUP EVENTS

NBC Sports Group begins its presentation of the 2016-17 FIS World Cup skiing season with comprehensive coverage of this weekend's giant slalom event from Soelden, Austria, with U.S. Olympic gold medalists Mikaela Shiffrin and Ted Ligety both slated to compete.

NBCSN will present coverage of the men's giant slalom race on Sunday at 9:30 p.m. ET, and Universal HD will televise the women's giant slalom event on Saturday at 3 p.m. ET.

NBC Sports.com and the NBC Sports app - NBC Sports Group's live streaming platforms for desktops, mobile devices, tablets, and connected TVs - will provide live streaming coverage of both runs of the men's and women's giant slalom events. Streaming coverage on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app begins Saturday at 4 a.m. ET with the first women's giant slalom run, followed by Run 2 at 7 a.m. ET. Streaming coverage of the men's giant slalom begins Sunday at 4 a.m. ET with Run 1, followed by Run 2 at 7 a.m. ET.

Ligety, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, is set to make his return at Soelden after suffering a season-ending injury last January. Ligety won this event last October to open up the 2015-16 World Cup season. Shiffrin, who won gold in the slalom in Sochi in 2014, finished second in Soelden last year, and won the event in 2014. This weekend's event serves as a home race for Austria's Eva-Maria Brem, who won her first career FIS World Cup season title in the giant slalom last year.
