Super-G postponed by heavy snow

VAL D'ISERE, France -- The women's World Cup super-G in Val d'Isere has been called off due to heavy snowfall.

Heavy snow fell overnight and continued into Friday morning. Organizers had hoped to hold the race in the afternoon but conditions were not set to improve enough, with extremely poor visibility.

Friday was the first of three scheduled days of racing. Strong winds had forced the cancellation of last weekend's super-G in St. Moritz, Switzerland, and the race was moved to Val d'Isere.

Weather conditions are expected to improve in the French resort for Saturday's downhill and Sunday's super combined.
