In less than two weeks, Val Thorens, Courchevel and Val d’Isère were supposed to host international events with the FIS Alpine and Ski Cross World Cup events. But now, the weather makes whims. With record high temperatures broken in November and no heavy snowfall announced … If everything is green, it’s the weather’s fault. If the cold is to make a comeback by the end of the week, the thermometer will not go down enough. The autumn was relatively mild, one of the warmest in almost 70 years.
The FIS (International Ski Federation) has just confirmed the cancellation of the World Cup Ski Cross of Val Thorens and the Alpine Skiing World Cups, Men and Ladies, of Val d’Isere and Courchevel. However, Courchevel could accommodate another World Cup around the 20 and 21 of December due to other cancelations in Europe due to the lack of snow, but the racing slope Emile Allais would have sufficient snow cover by then, made of artificial and natural snows.
