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

Following a consultation with athletes, teams and stakeholders, the FIS, Swiss-Ski, and FISI have come together to announce that Zermatt/Cervinia will not be included in the Alpine draft calendar for the 2024/25 season. Originally slated to host the first cross-border Alpine World Cup races for both men and women in the 2022/23 and 2023/24 seasons, unfavorable weather conditions prevented these races from taking place.

The decision was made after receiving feedback from athletes and engaging in discussions with stakeholders. The three federations will now 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.
