Canadian TV Is Skiers' Paradise

Ah, Canadian television, glorious and free to local viewers with a strong antenna.

This afternoon, CFTO, the CTV affiliate in Toronto, carried the men's downhill race live.

At this writing with the Top 30 skiers having raced, United States skier Bode Miller was in bronze medal position behind a Swiss skier, Didier Defago, and a Norwegian skier, Aksel Lund Svindal.

NBC, carried locally by Channel 2, was airing a 10K women's cross country race and some features and undoubtedly saving the downhill race for prime time when more American viewers are available to see it.

So if you're home in the afternoon -- and Monday was a holiday -- CTV clearly is the choice for skiers to watch.
