Watles, ITA - With less-than-ideal snow conditions plaguing much of the Alps it seemed only a matter of time before one of the stops on the Audi FIS Ski Cross World Cup would be effected, and today we found that to be the case with the cancellation of the Megeve (FRA) competition originally scheduled for January 22, 2017.

However, strong cooperation from the Italian Ski Federation (FISI) and the Sud Tirolian resort of Watles have ensured that the hole in the schedule left by the Megeve cancellation has already been filled, as Watles will add a second race to its upcoming competition program, with back-to-back races slated for January 14 & 15 after qualifications on the 13th.

This is the second season in a row that Watles has been asked to add a race to its competition program, and for the second straight season Watles has been able to step and do so, after a similarly bad snow situation forced the cancellation of a race planned for La Plagne (FRA) last year. 

 

Competition program:

Friday, 13.01.2017: Qualifications for both competitions
Saturday, 14.01.2017: 1st competition - CET 11:00 (replacement for Megève)
Sunday, 15.01.2017: 2nd competition - CET 11:00 (as originally planned)
