Val d'Isere saves World Cup event

Val d'Isere saves World Cup event 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.
