The new year begins on the other side of the Atlantic, where the ski cross family reunites from the 10th to the 21st of January in Canada. The ski cross battle intensifies on the tricky slopes of Nakiska, nestled in the Canadian woods with numerous challenging banks. While the Canadian Rockies may tempt with backcountry skiing, there’s no time to waste as we head back to Europe to test the new World Championship track in St. Moritz. This renowned Swiss jet-set destination, known for its breathtaking views over a frozen lake, is taking it to the next level after hosting European Cup races last year.
Right after our Swiss adventure, the second premiere takes place in Alleghe, Italy from the 31st of January, where Italian fans will get the chance to cheer on their new world champion. The site of the last World Championships showdown is our next tour stop: Bakuriani in Georgia, hosting another set of back-to-back action-filled races.
After a brief break to recover from all the traveling, the ski cross family reunites at the end of February in Reiteralm, Austria, for a technical course with high speeds and guaranteed action. This venue is not only a frequently visited training site but has also been the showdown for numerous European Cup races, promising to deliver intense racing.
In March, another premiere awaits us as we visit Oberwiesenthal, Germany. Last year’s no-show due to the lack of snow is now a distant memory as we prepare for surprises in this brand-new location.
For the second-to-last stop, we return to Switzerland for the third time this season, from the 15th to the 17th of March. In Veysonnaz, the enthusiastic Swiss fans, with their signature bells, encourage their heroes to give their all in the fight for the Crystal Globe.
The final showdown takes us all the way up north this year, unfolding in spectacular fashion in Idre Fjäll, Sweden. Brace yourselves for high-speed, high-jump races, where tight racing, drafting, and breathtaking overtakes will keep you on the edge of your seat until the finish line. As the saying goes, we save the best for last, with the King and Queen of the tour being crowned in the most spectacular venue of the tour on the 24th of March.
