The time for jitters is over! The FIS Snowboard World Cup Sudelfeld presented by Audi will take place as scheduled on February 1, 2014.

After yesterday's final snow control for the Parallel Giant Slalom at the Waldkopf slope, FIS Race Director Uwe Beier officially gave his OK for the World Cup finals of the alpine snowboarders, the first ever to be staged on German turf.

Due to the current conditions with ongoing fresh snow combined with the positive weather prediction with forecast cold temperatures nothing should stand in the way of the season's last parallel event of the raceboarders.

The event which was last held in 2012 also marks the final test for the international snowboard stars prior to the 2014 Olympic Winter Games at Sochi.
