The snow has arrived!

Posted on | February 17, 2016 | Category: News

For a second time this SkiO World Cup season the snow has arrived at the last minute. Last night, the organisers of the ESOC, JWSOC, EYSOC and SkiO WCup Round 3 confirmed that they finally have enough snow for the events to take place.

It was only on Monday that Event Director Hans Georg Gratzer and his team could confirm that enough snow had arrived to be able to hold fair SkiO competitions.

This winter has been characterised by difficult snow conditions, which has been a struggle for all snow sports. It is indeed great news that these races will be able to take place, especially considering their role in inspiring the younger generations of ski orienteers.

Head over to the SKIO2016 website to see photos of the current snow conditions and read more about the event. Click here to go straight to the website.

Now we can all set our sights on an exciting week of SkiO in Obertilliach 28 February – 5 March 2016!
