CANMORE, Alberta (Jan. 19) - After a month-long break, the Viessmann FIS Cross Country World Cup resumes Tuesday at the 1988 Olympic venue. Twenty-six U.S. skiers will participate in four days of World Cup racing. "They 'turn on the lights' Tuesday and we're ready to go," U.S. Head Coach Pete Vordenberg said.
