Cortina 2021 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships to go ahead.

Cortina 2021 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships are set to go ahead. Dates will be 7th to 21st February 2021 as planned.
 
The FIS have decided to go ahead after seeing CONI and FISI gave the ISF their assessment. This assessment showed the financial impact of Covid-19 to the local area. The area risks not being able to enjoy the event to the full but will host it in the best way possible.

The Infrastructure for Cortina 2021 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.

The majority of the infrastructures projects for Cortina 2021 are at the Tofana ski area. This is where the competitions will take place.
The area has completed slopes on the pistes Olympia, Vertigine and Druscié A.
Lino Lacedelli is a new slope built in the Cinque Torri area. This is the first Italian slope dedicated to training sessions and competitions. The slope has all safety features for doing so. The building of the new cable car has finished – Cortina – Col Drusciè “Freccia nel cielo”. This project counted with public and private investment.

Avalanche Control – Cortina 2021 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships

Cortina implemented an avalanche control system to protect the area Pomedes- Ra Valles. It also redesigned the Rumerlo Finish Area. This area will be suitable to host other events. This will increase Cortina’s popularity year round.

A new cable car – Son dei Prade- Bai de Dones is being built now. This would be hopefully built by winter. The idea of this lift is to reduce the traffic towards the Falzarego pass. People will be able to reach the Tofane ski area in a more sustainable way.
Fondazione Cortina 2021 and its partners will keep on monitoring the Covid situation. They will collaborate with FIS, CONI and FISI to see how the situation is in Italy and abroad in the coming months.
