ASPEN ” World Cup racing on Aspen Mountain is less than a month away. That means it’s time to rally the troops.

Volunteers are needed for a host of duties during the Aspen Winternational on Nov. 29 and 30. Anyone interested in helping out should show up at The Cantina in downtown Aspen on Wednesday, Nov. 5 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Attendees can partake of free drinks and appetizers, and music by local musician Brad Manosevitz. And, they can sign up for World Cup duty. The following committees are still seeking volunteers: hand timing, race headquarters, press room, sponsor room and wax room.

This year’s racing marks the 40th anniversary of World Cup racing in Aspen. Top women racers will compete in a giant slalom on Saturday, Nov. 29 and a slalom event on Sunday, Nov. 30. Races begin at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. both days. Spectators can watch from vantage points along the course or take a seat in the grandstand at the base of the race course at Lift 1A. A jumbotron will also capture the action.

Off the race course, the weekend will also boast the first Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert Series of the winter on Nov. 29. The act and concert time has yet to be announced.

In addition, apres-ski race parties are planned in Gondola Plaza at the conclusion of each day’s racing, and a celebration of 40 years of World Cup racing in Aspen is planned Friday evening, Nov. 28 at the Wheeler Opera House.
