JASNÁ (June 28, 2023) – Jasna FIS team summer inspection was a success. The Slovak ski resort is going to host the women’s Audi FIS World Cup slalom and giant slalom in January.
“It is very important to come to the venues in person, contact with the organisers is invaluable. We were especially interested in questions related to the TV operation, cameras placement, general safety and spectators. We are very satisfied with the current stage of preparations and are cheering for some new ideas that the spectators will be able to experience in Jasná,” said FIS Chief Race Director Peter Gerdol.
Audi FIS World cup will take place in Jasna on January 21 and 22, 2024.
“We are fine-tuning the visual and the entire marketing presentation, which will again be based on underlining the ladies potential and beauty. We expect up to 30,000 fans on the race weekend, which requires precise preparation, huge commitment and excellent logistics,” revealed Jiří Trumpeš, Head of the Organizing Committee. “We want to organise the World Cup like every time before – at a top level. We hope that the most significant sports event in Slovakia next year, which will be followed by millions of viewers all around the world, will be the top priority also as for the state support and will represent the whole country in the best way possible,” added Jiří Trumpeš.
“FIS team was extremely satisfied with the conditions in Jasná. Compared to 2021, some corridors will be changed and spectator stands will be added,” says Jasna 2024 Sports Director Jana Palovičová.
Compared to 2021, the organisers are preparing several changes in connection with competition track. “This year, we have decided to groom the finish area by hauling away excess, original soil. The FIS representatives spoke highly of it,” explained Maroš Kupčo, the Chief of Jasna’s World Cup slopes.
