A women's World Cup downhill ski race scheduled for Saturday afternoon at Lake Louise, Alta., was cancelled due to heavy snowfall that caused poor visibility.

Organizers twice delayed the start of the second downhill of the season before calling it off when the weather didn't let up.

There was no immediate word on a potential rescheduling of the event.

Lake Louise hosted the season-opening women's downhill the day before. Reigning World Cup overall and downhill champion Lindsey Vonn of the U.S. won, while Emily Brydon of Fernie, B.C., was the top Canadian in seventh.

A super-G is set for Sunday at Lake Louise, weather permitting. CBC Sports will provide live coverage of the race (CBCSports.ca, Bold, 2:25 p.m. ET), with bonus coverage later on the main network (CBC, 3 p.m. ET).
