FIS Race Director Uwe Beier recently visited Vallnord to check the World Cup slope on the Arcalis slope where the first ever FIS Snowboard World Cup stop in Andorra will take place next January.

According to Beier, who inspected the venue together with course builders Jeff Ihaksi and Nicolas Roma, everything looked fine with the Local Organisers fully committed to deliver a fantastic event.

But the Race Director had also some more great news in store.

The resort will not only stage one snowboard cross but two extending the calendar from five to six single starter races with two additional team events to take place throughout the season.

On January 11 and 12, snowboard cross athletes will thus have an additional chance to qualify for the Olympics.

Provisional schedule:

  • Jan 10: Qualifiers for SBX 1
  • Jan 11: Finals SBX 1
  • Jan 12: Qualifiers and Finals SBX 2
