The French resort of Val d'Isere has stepped in to rescue the next World Cup events for men on this season's calendar.
Anyone enjoying a Val d'Isere ski holiday
could be lucky enough to see some of the best skiers in the world take to the slopes following the news that the resort will host a downhill and super-combi event on January 20th and 21st.
Val d'Isere is taking the place of fellow French resort Chamonix, which unfortunately has been a little too warm to host the important event.
"The teams will arrive on Wednesday. Two trainings sessions are expected Thursday and Friday with the downhill on Saturday and the super-combined on Sunday," said men's World Cup director Gunther Hujara, according to Eurosport.
"There are good snow conditions at Val d'Isere and organisers are very motivated."
Anyone on a ski holiday in Val d'Isere
will surely agree with Mr Hujara about the conditions at the resort following the recent snowfall that has covered the Alps.
