VAL D'ISERE, France (AP) -- The women's World Cup super-G race in the Alpine resort of Val d'Isere has been canceled because of poor weather conditions.

Organizers decided to call off Saturday's race due to heavy snowfalls in the morning and poor visibility. It has not yet been decided when the race will be rescheduled.

A giant slalom is scheduled Sunday for the nearby resort of Courchevel.

Lara Gut of Switzerland won Friday's downhill in a race in which defending World Cup champion Lindsey Vonn of the United States crashed out.
