Beitostoelen World Cup looking for snow

Mon, Nov  12, 2007 - By FIS

In 2.5 weeks, the FIS Cross-Country World Cup family will meet for the second time this season – in the Norwegian village of Beitostoelen at the foot of the Jothunheimer Mountains. Beitostoelen has invested a lot since its last FIS World Cup events in November 2005. A total of 1.5 Million Norwegian Crowns were needed to update the infrastructure in the stadium including a rebuilt stadium building, extended service area and many small details. The tracks were redesigned, too, and a 2.5 km loop was newly-made with the possibility to prepare it completely with artificial snow.

At the moment, 2 km are ready – prepared with artificial snow - and colder weather is expected in the next several days.

2KM of cross country ski trails are ready at Beitostoelen

The OC in Beitostoelen is likely to soon be ready for the Norwegian national opening in Cross-Country and Biathlon planned on 16th -18th November. 13 hours of live coverage by NRK are scheduled from this event. The 2nd Viessmann FIS World Cup Cross-Country races of the season are set for 24th-25th November with individual start races in the free technique and relay competitions.
