This was confirmed by Emmanuel Couder, director of the FIS World Cup for technical disciplines for men, who checked the quality and snow control of the Sljeme slalom track, mandatory for all organizers of FIS World Cup races, reports

After inspecting the track, Emmanuel Couder said: “I am very pleased with the snow situation on Sljeme and the situation on the track. There are 70-100 centimeters of solid, compact snow cover on the Red Slope and the track is very well prepared. The organizers and staff of the Sljeme Ski Resort have prepared a good surface and produced sufficient amounts of snow.”

After the FIS confirmation, Vedran Pavlek, director of the Organizing Committee of the race, added:

“I am delighted. Sljeme’s Red Slope has never been so well prepared so early, which was confirmed by our skiers who have been training on the Red Slope for the last ten days. The snow on the Red Slope is enough to withstand the eventual southerly wind announced. Although the temperatures are higher than the average for this time of year, there is enough snow on Sljeme, and we even have spare snow on the side in case we need it. In the coming days, we will work with FIS representatives to decide when and what the final preparation of the track will be, depending on the weather forecast.”

The FIS Ski World Cup Snow Queen Trophy 2022 races are scheduled for January 4 and 5, when the world’s best slalom skiers will compete for points, the title, and the crown. The first run of the women’s race will be on Tuesday, January 4, at 12:30, and the second run at 16:05.

The best men’s slalom skiers will compete on Wednesday, January 5, with the first run starting at 15:30, while the second run begins at 18:40.

Unfortunately, to hold the race safely and follow the epidemiological measures, the FIS Ski World Cup Snow Queen Trophy will be held again this season without spectators and guests, and the world’s best slalom skiers will not be greeted by fans this time either.

However, everyone will be able to watch the event on HRT2.
