Gardena-Gröden and Alta Badia will host a total of four World Cup ski races next December. The dates for the races have been confirmed last weekend...

...during the International Ski Federation FIS’ Calendar Conference in Portoroz, Slovenia. The Downhill and Super-G races on the Saslong course in Gardena-Gröden will take place on December 16th and 17th, 2011, the Giant Slalom and a Slalom on December 18th and 19th, 2011 on the Gran Risa in Alta Badia. This Slalom race has been added to the roster as it was returned by the Japanese Ski Federation following the earthquake catastrophe earlier this year.
As in years past, the races in Gardena-Gröden will be European’s first speed events of the season.
