Downhill races in Zermatt/Cervinia not included in 2024/25 Alpine World Cup calendar draft

FIS and Swiss-Ski Federations to Reevaluate Cross-Border Alpine World Cup Races in Zermatt/Cervinia for 2024/25 Season

The FIS, Swiss-Ski, and FISI have decided not to include Zermatt/Cervinia in the Alpine draft calendar for the 2024/25 season. This decision was made after receiving feedback from athletes and engaging in discussions with stakeholders, for which FIS is thankful.

Initially, Zermatt/Cervinia was planned to host the first cross-border Alpine World Cup races for both men and women in the 2022/23 and 2023/24 seasons. However, unfavorable weather conditions prevented these races from taking place. Despite this setback, the three federations have now decided to focus on exploring ways to host future World Cup races in Zermatt and Cervinia.

The Local Organizing Committee, along with Zermatt and Cervinia, will carefully consider these proposals to find constructive solutions for the future. This choice demonstrates the dedication of all parties to ensuring the success of Alpine World Cup races, taking into account factors such as weather, infrastructure, and athlete well-being. This decision was made with the best interest of everyone involved in mind.
