Italy's Val Gardena to host rescheduled women's WCup races

Two women's Alpine World Cup ski races canceled by warm weather at Val d'Isere in France have been moved to Italy

OBERHOFEN, Switzerland (AP) — Two women’s Alpine World Cup ski races canceled by warm weather in France have been moved to Italy.

The International Ski Federation has announced a new schedule creating six straight days of World Cup men’s and women’s races in neighboring Val Gardena and Alta Badia from Dec. 14-19.

Lack of snow on the women’s course at Val d’Isere forced organizers to cancel a meeting next week.

A downhill is now scheduled for Val Gardena on Dec. 18, and a super-G on the same course the next day.

Val Gardena last staged women’s World Cup races in 1975, according to the www.ski-db.com Alpine statistics archive.

Val Gardena also hosts a men’s super-G on Dec. 14 and the classic Saslong downhill the next day.

Alta Badia stages a men’s giant slalom on Dec. 16 and a parallel GS race the following day.
