On Friday, FIS issued an update for the Val d’Isere races, which are scheduled to host both men’s and women’s events in December.

“At this stage, despite the current national lockdown in France starting today and until December 1st, and based on the support from the regional and national authorities, the preparation work of the whole event is still going on as planed,” the FIS stated.


“Nevertheless, considering that the French government will state an update of measures in 15 days, considering the travel restrictions and potential changes in very short notice , the LOC and the French ski association together with FIS, have decided to issue the next decision on the competitions program on 2020 November 13th,” the statement reads.

On Wednesday, the French government issued a nationwide lockdown in response to a surge in COVID-19 infections. The lockdown is currently set to expire Dec. 1.
