Why does Killington host FIS World Cups over Thanksgiving?

Zermatt-Cervinia's new downhill course, Gran Becca, has had a rather unsuccessful debut for two years, but I doubt they would ax it like Whistler:
  • Canceled in November 2023 for too much snow, wind, and weather for two separate weekends - men's and women's
  • Canceled in November 2022 for lack of snow
The Zermatt-Cervinia course has been controversial from the start, many people thought that the weather/wind for a downhill on the hill in November would be problematic; they only managed 2 training runs out and 0 races out of 10 days for Men and Women combined. Not sure if the races will survive with the so little return versus all the traveling, organizing, expenses by various teams involved. Only time will tell.
