Lack Of Snow In France Moves World Cup Ski Races To Italy

Two mens World Cup races scheduled in France next week were switched to Italy on Thursday because of a lack of snow.

VAL D’ISERE, France: Two mens World Cup races scheduled in France next week were switched to Italy on Thursday because of a lack of snow.

The International Ski Federation said Val dIsere could not stage giant slaloms on Dec. 5-6 which now go to Santa Caterina Valfurva.

The canceled races were due to open three straight weekends of World Cup races at Val dIsere in a redrafted program that skips North America during travel restrictions in the coronavirus pandemic.

Until the global health crisis, the men’s circuit was to spend the first weekend in December racing at Beaver Creek, Colorado, before returning to Europe.

Val dIsere is scheduled to host mens downhill and super-G races on Dec. 12-13. Three womens speed races are scheduled at the French Alps resort on Dec. 18-20.
