The International Ski Federation (FIS) has rescheduled World Cup slalom races recently canceled in Levi, Finland to take place in Flachau, Austria.
The Levi racers, originally slated for Nov. 12-13, will now run Dec. 20-21 with the women skiing first and the men the following day. Both races will be held under the lights as the second runs will begin at 6:30 local time.
Flachau has carried out successful ladies’ FIS World Cup night slaloms during the last two seasons, in January 2010 and 2011, with great atmosphere and enthusiastic crowds. The last men’s World Cup slalom event in Flachau took place in December 2004. Flachau also hosted the technical events for the FIS Junior Alpine World Ski Championships in 2007.
