Italy & Switzerland To Stage First-Ever Cross-Border World Cup Races

J2SkiNews posted 02-Oct

Zermatt and Cervinia are to host the first ever Alpine World Cup ski races to cross an international border.
Potentially taking place for the first time in just over a year's time in Autumn 2022, the two resorts will host both downhill and super-G races for both men and women at the start of the season.
"The races will take place after the World Cup opening in Soelden and give speed athletes the opportunity to start the season a month earlier than before. The planning is already in full swing and these speed opening races could be integrated into the Audi FIS World Cup calendar as early as the 2022/23 season," an FIS report states.

The course is focussed on the unique scenery around the iconic Matterhorn and has been designed by former Swiss Olympic champion Didier Defago, it will start on Gobba di Rollin above the Klein Matterhorn in Switzerland and finish in Laghi Cime Bianchi in Italy. It takes in the glacier ski area that's open year-round and is accessed from Europe's highest ski-lift-accessed point at 3,899m.
