The difficult conditions in this early season have already caused the cancellation of two races on the men's Tour: the giant slalom opener in Sölden and the slalom in Val d'Isère last week-end. Both races will now be replaced in the Austrian resort of Saalbach-Hinterglemm.
Candidate for the FIS Ski World Championships in 2025, the resort located in the south-west of the city of Salzburg planned to organise European Cup races this season, with two super-gs scheduled on 21st and 22nd of December. In addition to this, Saalbach will host two World Cup races.
A World Cup will be held on 19th of December, replacing the giant slalom from Sölden, and a slalom has just been added to the schedule on 20th of December. This slalom is the replacement of last Sunday's cancelled race in Val d'Isère, that the French Federation gave back to FIS yesterday.
