Andorra will host the 2023 Alpine Ski World Cup Finals
Andorra has been chosen to host the 2023 Alpine Ski World Cup Finals. The Soldeu El Tarter sectors of Grandvalira will host the 25 best skiers in all alpine disciplines from 13 to 19 March. This was confirmed this morning at the autumn meeting of the International Ski Federation (FIS) in Zurich. Andorra was up against two other candidates for the event, both from major countries with a long tradition in alpine skiing. On the one hand, Lenzerheide in Switzerland and, on the other, Kvitfjell-Hafjell in Lillehammer, Norway.
The competition was tight, with Norway receiving six votes in the first round, Andorra receiving seven and Switzerland two. Switzerland was then eliminated, and in the second round Andorra received the majority of the votes.
The Andorran delegation in attendance included Andorran Ski Federation (FAE) President and General Manager Josep Pintat and Carles Visa; Grandvalira-ENSISA
Director and Head of the World Cup Project David Hidalgo; ENSISA Board Member Conrad Blanch; World Cup Secretary General Marc Mitjana; and the new Race Director Santi López.
Speed Skiing World Cup
During these days in Zurich, progress was also made in the coordination of the Speed Skiing World Cup that will be held in the Grau Roig sector from 2 to 4 April 2020. It should be noted that the Riberal slope will also welcome the world’s fastest skiers at the 2021 World Championships.
The Head of the Speed Skiing World Cup
Nadal Antor and two members of his technical team, Toni Crespo and Bernat Escoda, travelled to the Swiss city.
Grandvalira will hold a press conference in the coming days to provide more information.
