The FIS and the Swiss authorities have validated the holding of the Cross-Country Skiing World Cup weekend scheduled for Graubünden on 12 and 13 December.
If cancellations pile up, like the Lillehammer stage at the beginning of December, the Davos Nordic weekend should take place. It was indeed confirmed by the FIS on Monday. The world elite of cross-country skiing should thus be able to compete in sprints on Saturday 12th and distance races on Sunday 13th December. Snow is not a problem either in the Grisons resort, which has been practicing “snow farming” for several years, which plans to store white gold from one year to the next.
The health concept put in place, which provides in particular for requiring a negative test for all the actors present and the absence of the public, has been validated by the authorities. “Despite our experience as an organizer of World Cup competitions, this year has been extremely difficult, conceded Babara Flury-Mettler, president of the organizing committee. One of the most difficult decisions involved going behind closed doors. It was not our plan, but we had to give in for this year. ”
