The United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) has proposed Killington and Beaver Creek for International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine World Cup legs during the 2017-18 season.

Both resorts were on the programme for the 2016-17 campaign but action in Beaver Creek was cancelled due to warm weather and a lack of snow.

Men's downhill, super-G and giant slalom was supposed to take place at the Colorado venue between December 2 and 4.

However, the competition had to be shifted to Val d'Isere in France.

Women's action did take place in Killington with giant slalom and slalom on November 26 and 27 respectively.

The event at the Vermont resort was the first World Cup on the east coast of the US since 1991.

Both venues have been put forward to the FIS for the new season, which will include the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games.

Beaver Creek has experience hosting the 1989, 1999 and 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.

"Killington and Beaver Creek are both dedicated partners who, along with Aspen and Squaw Valley, have demonstrated their commitment to showcasing our athletes and growing the sport of Alpine ski racing," said USSA President and chief executive Tiger Shaw. 

"We've seen strong performances from our athletes at both venues and look forward to giving them the opportunity to ski on home snow as they vie for their Olympic spots."

Calum Clark, the USSA's vice president, praised both venues.

"The men’s races at Beaver Creek are some of the most highly anticipated races on tour," he said.

"There is no better venue to showcase our US Ski Team speed stars in an Olympic season.

"The Killington team worked tirelessly to put on a great event and inspire thousands of young athletes.

"The prospect of returning for events during and after the Olympic season gives us the opportunity to further build on that success and grow the event’s impact."

The FIS are due to confirm the calendar for the new season after meetings on May 28.
