    Alice Robinson wants her skis to do the talking this weekend

    Alice Robinson wants her skis to do the talking this weekend


    The 19-year-old Kiwi heads into a double-header World Cup Giant Slalom in France looking for a big improvement on her 12th placing in the opener in Austria in October.

    She has the advantage of her co-coach Chris Knight tasked to set the course for the first run in tonight's opening race.

    But, Robinson is trying not to put pressure on herself.



    The first run is tonight at 9:30.
