Skier Erik Guay and ski cross athlete Dave Duncan led an impressive 10-medal weekend for Canada, keeping the nation fourth in the World Cup medal standings.

Guay of Mont-Tremblant, Que., won his fourth career World Cup victory on Saturday in Val Gardena, Italy. The win also matched Crazy Canuck legend Steve Podborski's Canadian record of 20 career podium finishes.

Duncan, from London, Ont., won’t soon forget this past weekend as he won his first two career World Cup events in a span of 24 hours in Innichen, Italy.

Canada also earned gold medals in aerials from Travis Gerrits of Milton, Ont., and another in slopestyle from Huntsville, Ont.’s Dara Howell.

Norway made the biggest jump up the World Cup standings, surging from 10th to sixth place following a 14-medal performance.

Here’s how the top 10 nations stack up:
