Today marks one month to go before the start of the Krasnyarsk 2021 FIS Junior Snowboard, Freestlye and Freeski World Championships, where 17 different competitions will take place from March 18-28 across the three disciplines set to take to Krasnoyarsk's slopes.
Snowboard competition in Krasnoyarsk will see the full slate of competitions featured on the World Cup taking place, with slopestyle, big air, halfpipe, snowboard cross, snowboard cross team, parallel slalom, parallel giant slalom and parallel team competitions all going down over the course of 11 days of events.
Similaraly, the Freestyle and Freeski programmes in Krasnoyarsk will also run the gamut of World Cup events, with aerials, aerials team, moguls, and dual moguls competitions taking place, along with halfpipe, slopestyle and big air Freeski events.
Moguls and aerials competitions, as well as the Snowboard and Freeski halfpipe events, will go down under the lights in Krasnoyarsk as nighttime events.
When Krasnoyarsk was first confirmed as the 2021 JWCs host back in Novemeber, FIS Snowboard Assistant Race Director Peter Korgell stated, “We are very happy that the organizers of Krasnoyarsk decided to hold all Junior World Championship competitions at one venue. There had been discussions to spread the various disciplines around a couple of venues, but it was then decided that everybody, especially the athletes, would benefit most from the single-venue setting. The organizing committee is in full preparation mode and I am convinced we will see a fantastic, as well as safe, major event for our young athletes come March 2021. We would like to thank the organizers of Krasnojarsk 2021 for their hard work and big efforts to make this Junior World Champs possible."
