The Audi FIS Ski Cross World Cup season 2020/2021 calendar has been published in October, but due to COVID-19 FIS council and all stakeholders had to make slight changes in the timeline of the event. After several weeks of negotiations, final version of the calendar has been released.
The December tour will be held in Montafon, Austria on 11th and 12th of December.
The tour will continue in Arosa, Switzerland. For the first time in history, Arosa will be hosting the event on December 14-16.
According to the first version of the calendar next tour should’ve been held in Italy, but as stated by the final decision, the competition will be held in Val Thorens, France on December 19-20.
“We are very happy that all organizers were so cooperative and were willing to put this adapted calendar together. With these challenging times, it seems we need to be more flexible than ever. It is great to have such awesome partners on board who are as motivated as we are,” FIS Cross Race Director Klaus Waldner said referring to himself and the rest of his competition team.
The Local Organizing Committee of Idre Fjäll with the Swedish Ski Federation and FIS members have made a decision and added one more tour that will take place in Idre Fjall on January 20-24.
The rest of the planned events will be held in the same order as scheduled formerly. Accordingly on January 30-31 the competition will be hosted by Feldberg, Germany; On February 6-7 a special tour of World Cup will be held in Bakuriani, Georgia. This tour will be special not only because it’s the first time for Bakuriani to host World Cup tour, but also because the first ever Ski Cross Team Event will be premiered there, which is a very exciting format for everyone!
On March 12-13 next competitions will be hosted by “Sunny Valley” Resort, Russia.
The World Cup finals will take place in Veysonnaz, Switzerland on March 20-21.
