Les Deux Alpes resort will host a double event, with the first World Cup taking place on December 2, with a Team competition the next day on December 3.
The location will have great memories for World Championship medallist Josie Baff who won the opening event in Les Deux Alpes last year, the first World Cup victory of the 20-year-olds career. Belle Brockhoff will also be looking to start her season strongly after an interrupted season last year and add to her impressive World Cup podium tally.
In the men’s field three-time Olympian Cam Bolton and two-time Olympian Adam Lambert will lead the Australian charge.
Two young Aussies will make their World Cup debut’s in France, with Amber Essex (21) and James Johnstone (19) ready for their opportunity after strong domestic seasons, while Mia Clift (19) is on track for her third career start after missing a year and a half though injury.
