FIS Alpine Ski World Cup 2019/20 until 26 April
Talking sports competitions and championships, that’s summer over with, so let’s get down to business in the snow! We love the World Cup’s various disciplines in the precious White, staged in the most incredible winter destinations and skiing hot spots not just Europe, but throughout the world. Visit just a single tournament and you’ll be hooked by the crazy vibe, excellence in sports and brilliant atmosphere in the resort! Make this not just a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but something to be part of every winter.
The International Ski Federation’s calendar is relentless! The disciplines to be contested are Alpine skiing, Freestyle & Freeski, Nordic Combined, Ski Jumping, Ski Jumping and Cross-Country! Competition dates start at the end of October to the end of April, which is a full 6 months of winter sport to determine world champions to make their countries proud. You don’t need to be a skier yourself to appreciate the atmosphere on the ground during the championship. However, if you’ve ever watched a ski jumping event live, you’ll realise the tremendous skill that’s required, which actually applies to all the respective disciplines. You just have to be a bit crazier flying through with skis strapped on, rather than testing your mettle in the down-hill races.
One of the relatively young disciplines gaining more attention and fans by the season is Skicross. Do check out our interview with the current World Champion Fanny Smith, as she is one hell of a gal with great talent indeed. She’s part of the Swiss National Team and has a great future ahead of her.
FIS Ski World Cup
The circuit doesn’t just travel to European destinations in Switzerland, Austria, Italy, France and Germany, but all over the world, including the USA, Russia, Latvia, Slovakia, Finland and Sweden, amongst others, but also China and Japan…wow! 6 months training and 6 months competing – it’s a tough life, but someone has to do it. However, for the athletes taking part it is a calling! Their physical and mental fitness has to be at the highest levels and what they’re asking from their bodies over the years of competitions is beyond what any fitness level most of us will only dream of. However, if you ever go to any championship, in any of these disciplines, the energy and crazy atmosphere at these sporting events will catch you and get you hooked instantly. It is a memory-making experience every time, and following your favourite athlete around on the circuit is simply mind-blowing.
International Snow Day
The FIS has even created an International Snow day, to celebrate the precious white flakes! For kids and families, snow holidays are just huge fun, for speed junkies and those who take their sport more seriously, it provides a unique ground surface to reach their physical pique. For naturists, who want to simply enjoy the outdoors and watch the change of our Earth during the winter season, a walk to enjoy the fresh air will do just fine.
