The men’s super-giant slalom World Cup, which was scheduled for Thursday on the Stelvio course in Bormio, Italy, has been canceled due to warm weather.
As the forecast temperature reached 7 degrees Celsius (45 degrees Fahrenheit), the organizers were worried that the situation would not be safe enough.
The race was originally scheduled for Lake Louise in Alberta in November, but was postponed due to weather problems at the Canadian resort. It was not immediately clear whether the race would be rescheduled at a later date or canceled altogether.
The race would be the last event of the calendar year.
The men’s slalom opens in 2022 in Zagreb, Croatia, on 5 January.
In the previous two days, Dominik Paris won the ski race in Bormio and Alexander Aamodt Kilde won the super-giant slalom.
Women’s giant slalom, slalom canceled in Slovenia
Also on Thursday, the International Ski Federation announced that the women’s giant slalom and slalom races, which were scheduled for January 8 and 9 in Maribor, had been canceled due to “current conditions on the racetrack and bad weather forecast”.
“A possible replacement will be announced in a timely manner,” the FIS said.
