Lausanne 2020 Alpine Skiing venue given go ahead for remodelling
Permission has been given to renovate the Alpine Skiing venue which will be used for the Lausanne 2020 Winter Youth Olympic Games.
The decision to remodel the Piste des Jorasses was permitted by the Municipality of Les Diablerets, one of the Swiss city's host venues. It is one of the most used slopes in Les Diablerets, and one of the main ski resorts in Switzerland's Vaud Alps.
Alongside the remodelling for the Games, the authorities have considered how the slope could be used as part of a new strategic approach for winter and summer tourism in the area, creating a lasting legacy beyond the Games.
FIS European Cup competitions along with several FIS events are set to take place on the slope from this winter, which all build towards the Games in January 2020.
