The new date was published at the FIS Council on the occasion of the 2019 FIS Alpine Ski World Championships in Åre (Sweden)
The FIS Council gathered in Åre (Sweden) on Wednesday February 13th, on the occasion of the 2019 FIS Alpine Ski World Championships, made official a new date for the 66th 3Tre. The night slalom of Madonna di Campiglio, included in the 2019/2020 FIS Alpine World Cup calendar, will take place on Wednesday January 8th, 2020.
The Canalone Miramonti’s slalom will be run in January, after the last five editions (from 2014 to 2018) had been held on the fixed date of December 22nd, unavailable in 2019 due to a calendar overlap. The FIS’ decision moved the race from its initial positioning on December 30th, 2019.
“We are happy with the FIS decision to postpone the race to January 8th - 3Tre President Lorenzo Conci said. – “This time, our usual date is unavailable, as it falls within the World Cup weekend in Val Gardena and Alta Badia. At the same time, December 30th was due to bring significant challenges in logistical and organizational terms. In those days, Madonna di Campiglio would not have been able to give its best for 3Tre and the World Cup. Now, we can focus on the new date, on January 8th, 2020, with greaterserenity and confidence, with the goal offering another big show with great technical contents”.
From the 2020/2021 season, 3Tre will slot back in its traditional date: in fact, the FIS calendar already has the two following editions planned on December 22nd, 2020, and December 22nd, 2021.
