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.
Following the men’s & women’s practice and qualifying sessions on Wednesday 4 and Thursday 5 December, the world’s best skiers will compete in fours on the legendary Val Thorens ski cross course.
The finals will take place on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 December 2019, with a huge crowd gathering to cheer on Jean-Frédéric Chapuis, the local champion after whom the course is named, and his French team-mates!
It promises to be a thrilling spectacle, complete with unbeatable sporting entertainment, a test village and music courtesy of La Folie Douce Val Thorens!
There’ll be a special VIP area by the finish line and podium, so you can get close to the action and enjoy the full Audi FIS Ski Cross World Cup experience.
On the Saturday, expect to rub shoulders with members of the French team among the VIPs! Places are limited, so contact the Val Thorens Sports Club now to secure yours. There won’t be enough to go around! -> firstname.lastname@example.org
