After thorough deliberations with athletes, teams, and stakeholders, the International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS), Swiss-Ski, and the Federazione Italiana Sport Invernali (FISI) have decided not to include Zermatt/Cervinia in the Alpine draft calendar for the 2024/25 season. Initially, Zermatt/Cervinia was slated to host the first cross-border Alpine World Cup races for both men and women during the 2022/23 and 2023/24 seasons. However, these races were canceled due to unfavorable weather conditions.

The decision was made after taking into account feedback from athletes and discussing with stakeholders. The three federations will collaborate over the coming months to explore options for hosting future World Cup races in Zermatt and Cervinia. The Local Organizing Committee, along with Zermatt and Cervinia, will carefully evaluate these proposals to find positive ways forward.

This choice reflects the commitment of all parties involved in ensuring that Alpine World Cup races are successful while taking into account factors such as weather, infrastructure, and athlete welfare. The focus is on finding solutions that will ensure a bright future for Alpine racing in Zermatt and Cervinia.
