Many investors justified that by pointing out that interest rates were low and few alternatives looked like better investments. Those include worries about a potential rise in USA inflation or interest rates and budget disputes in Washington.

If organizers are not able to stage the race by the end of Wednesday, the downhill will replace the men's Super G in the schedule with the other speed race moving to Friday, now a rest day.

To make room for the Alpine program's marquee race, the men's super-G will shift from Thursday to Friday. The FIS said the wind, gusting at up to 72 kilometers per hour, was expected to continue all day.

Race organizers say the gondola lift carrying teams and officials up the mountain could not be operated.
