Two night events confirmed at Schladming 2013
As Schladming is gearing up for the main event of the 2013 ski racing calendar, the competition schedule for the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships has now been confirmed newly, featuring two night events.
Besides the Nations Team Event that will take place Feb. 12, the men’s super combined will take place in the afternoon.
Building on Schladming’s reputation for fantastic atmosphere at the traditional night race, these two evening events will allow the ski fans at the World Championships to also experience the magic of racing under the lights.
The seasons’ highlight event will begin with the official Opening Ceremony in the evening of Feb. 4 and will conclude with the Closing Ceremony on Sunday, Feb. 17. An extensive program of side events will help guarantee a great atmosphere throughout the venue and the town of Schladming.
The Schladming 2013 Organising Committee this week announced that due to sports technical reasons, the “loop” of the Planai Bahnen gondola bottom station which was initially constructed over the parking place and envisioned to form a part of the grandstand for the World Championships will be dismantled. -GM
