One of the men’s descents, canceled in Zermatt in mid-November, was rescheduled in Italy, in Val Gardena, in December.
One of the two descents of the men’s Alpine Skiing World Cup, canceled in Zermatt (Switzerland) mid-November due to bad weather conditions, was rescheduled for Val Gardena (Italy) in December, the International Ski Federation (FIS) said Monday evening. The Dolomites resort was already scheduled to organize a Super-G and a descent on December 15 and 16 and is therefore resuming a second descent on its program on the 14th.
Skiers competing in several disciplines will therefore have up to five days of races since two giants are also on the program in Alta Badia (Italy) on December 17 and 18. For the second year in a row, the four descents (two men’s races and two women’s races) planned for Zermatt-Cervinia in mid-November had to be canceled due to bad weather conditions, a hard blow for the organizers of this unprecedented cross-border stage. The FIS has not communicated on the possible rescheduling of the other canceled descents.
