The alpine meadows bloom and summer is just around the corner: The coming winter season still seems far away, but the addition of the World Cup race triggers anticipation. Davos is now represented with a parallel slalom (PSL) in the snowboard alpine World Cup. Shortly before Christmas, on December 23, the snowboard elite will race for World Cup points. According to the organizing committee, it should be a snowboard festival for all with a concert after the final runs.
Proven race slope on the Bolgen
Davos has already proven to the FIS that a parallel slalom at the Bolgen works with two successfully held European Cups. The slope and its central location close to the public are popular with the athletes. This was communicated by the organizing committee around OC president Martin Caviezel. Julie Zogg, the reigning and multiple world champion in parallel slalom and overall World Cup winner, is also pleased: "Davos Bolgen has been a very important snowboard alpine location for years. The fact that we will be allowed to hold a World Cup there on December 23, 2023, is the highlight of the next season."
Second World Cup race in Switzerland
Switzerland is getting its second snowboard alpine World Cup with Davos. The country has already been represented on the World Cup calendar for several years with a Parallel Giant Slalom (PGS) in Graubünden. This year, for the sixth time in a row, athletes lined up at the start of the Parallel Giant Slalom in Scuol.
