Nov 05The traditional season start in slalom ladies and men in Levi, Finland, November 14th to 15th is cancelled due to lack of snow, warm weather and unfavourable weather forecast according to FIS official communication.
Nov 18After the positive snow control from November 16th, FIS confirms the scheduled races in Lake Louise, Canada, November 28th and 29th. This means the start of the season for speed events for Aksel Lund Svindal, Kjetil Jansrud and the other speed specialists. We are looking forward to the WC come-back for Aksel after injury, and to Kjetil's return to Lake Louise, where he started his fantastic speed season last year.
Nov 15Bente Fjellstad Bjørge has accepted an offer to be chief of volunteers in the Kvitfjell organization. Bente, who has her daily work for Ringebu Kommune, knows the WC organization well. She was one of a group of secretaries during the Olympic Games in Kvitfjell in 1994, and she had the position of Race Secretary directly after the Olympic Games. The last two years she has worked in the Volunteers Department under Lars Smestadmoen's leadership.

Oct 15The snow production is now starting in Kvitfjell. The new snow production systems (snow guns) T40 from TecnoAlpin in South Tyrol in Italy give more snow better spread than the older snow guns, and they produce snow from -2 degrees Celsius, with an optimal temperature of -7 degrees. Picture shows T40 in The Clamp (Klemma).
