(CP) Sixty- jne of the world's top skiers vcrc getting themselves in hape mentally for the resump- ion World Cup competition oday after a break for the Win- ir Olympics in Japan. The last meet was Jan. 24 In Switzerland and the next meet s at Crystal Mountain, Wash., Feb. 26-27. The 69 are the starters in the irst run of the men's giant sla- only race scheduled or today on the steep slopes of Mount Norquay. The second run will be held Friday after the wo runs of the women's slalom. The meet ends Saturday with one-run women's giant slalom and the two runs of the men's slalom. First out of the starting gate at 1 p.m. MST today will be Ihristian Neureuther, 22, of West Germany. He's well down in standings in 35th place and is not expected to be able to do much with his good starting josition. DUVILLARD STARTS 14TH Series leader Henri Duvlllard of France is 14th on the starting list for the 41-game course. Duvillard, however, is ex- pected to do well despite his seeding because the course should not be badly chopped up by the time he starts. Second-place Jean-Noel Au- gert, also of France, starts sixth and f o u r t h -p 1 a c e Gustavo Thoeni of Italy, a gold medalist at Sapporo, Japan, starts eighth. Third-place in the stand- ings is held by Austria's Karl Schranz, now retired from com- petition. Duvillard has 97 points, Au- gert 94, Schranz 83 and Thoeni 67. A special men's giant slalom originally scheduled for today has been cancelled because of hill conditions. GET FRESH SNOW The area, easily visible from Banff, received an unexpected two feet of fresh snow Tuesday night and officials felt that course preparation for a second men's giant slalom would take too much time. A second giant slalom was made necessary when race or- ganizers at Val Gardena, Italy, decided to hold a downhill on March 15 instead of a giant sla- lom. Ski federation officials were trying to decide where at the re- maining six meets the event could be held. The starting order today will be reversed for the second run Friday and this is where prob- I lems could arise. All the top point-holders then will be at the end of the starting lineup and will have to contend with a course which "will be badly rutted by earlier competi- tors. In addition, the weather fore- cast is for a high of 40 degrees today and Friday making wax choice even more crucial than usual. CANADIAN GOES 30TH The first Canadian off at the start today will be Keto Har- rington of Calgary who will start in 30th place. Jim Hunter, also of Calgary, is 31st. There are 13 Canadians in the starting lineup, 10 Austrians, 10 Italians, nine Swiss, nine Ameri- cans, eight French, five West Germans, two Norwegians and one each from Argentina, Brit- ain and Poland. In women's competition, which is to start Friday, it ap- pears that Annemarie Proell of Austria has the 1972 women's crown wrapped up. She has 203 points, 130 ahead of Isabelle Mir of France who is in third place. Francoise Macchi of France, second with 187 and the only woman realy capable of catch- ing Miss Proell. has retired from competition this year be- cause of nn injury. Marie Thorese Nadig of Switz- erland, a double gold medalist at the Olympics, is in fourth place with 71 points but she would need to win every other race In the series and Miss Proell would have to fall in every race to give the Swiss girl any chance of wining. PHOENIX, Ariz.
