Winter sports hub Norway can no longer host World Cup skiing events this season because of stricter pandemic-related rules imposed Thursday by the national government.

As a result, the Norwegian Ski Association will be unable to host any further competitions through the end of current World Cup season due to the stricter travel and event-related restrictions. This includes the men’s World Cup races in Kvitfjell previously scheduled for March 4-7.

FIS will announce if there are any replacement venues and dates as they are confirmed.
