The popular World Cup weekend in Sölden is intended to convey a remarkable statement of skiing and winter sports all over the world. As already known from similar major sporting events, fans are not allowed on site. Although the enthusiastic fans of the ski stars are not allowed to cheer on their idols as usual, they will be able to enjoy TV pictures and live streams showing Sölden's unique racing atmosphere.
AUDI FIS Alpine Ski World Cup 2020
Sölden is ready for the "Opening 2020" Challenge
The start of the 2020/21 Ski World Cup season will take place! On 17 and 18 October, the traditional Women's and Men's Giant Slalom races will be held on the slope of Rettenbach Glacier in Sölden. Of course, under the well-known signs of the Corona year 2020: Without spectators but with severe safety regulations in order to prevent the COVID-19 pandemic from spreading.
17 + 18 October 2020
COVID-19 safety concept:
There is exclusivity on Rettenbach Glacier. Only those who have the appropriate accreditation as participants or employees can stay on site. At the same time, the spacious Tiefenbach Glacier ski area will also be opened up for public skiing. However, the ski tunnel towards Tiefenbach Glacier remains closed on the race days. "Togetherness" of ski guests and the World Cup team is therefore impossible.
There are absolutely no side events on the glacier or in the village of Sölden. This also includes company events or press conferences.
In 2020, media representatives will only have access to one press center directly at Rettenbach Glacier - of course in the usual, professional quality.
Further details on the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup Opening in Sölden and corresponding event guidelines to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic will follow continuously.
