From 6 December to 10 December
FIS discipline since 2003, the Skicross is a ski competition in which a group of skiers (usually four) start simultaneously atop an inclined course with jumps and woops, then race to reach the finish line first.
Its recent accession to the Olympic status, promise a bright future for this spectacular and media-related discipline. A lot of Alpine skiers are now going for Ski Cross to find, beyond a technical ski, a direct confrontation in a Freestyle culture.
This winter, Val Thorens is entering the world circuit, hosting stage one of the FIS CROSS ALPS TOUR. The event is being taken up a notch, as the best athletes have an automatic place in the final and can choose their opponents for the first run.
