The new winter season kicks off with World Cup Skiing in Sölden: The greatest female and male Alpine ski racers in the world are back on Rettenbach Glacier for a weekend of thrill and some serious racing action.
The greatest female and male Alpine ski racers in the world return to Sölden for a weekend of thrill! The Sölden Ski World Cup happens to be the first races of the season and is notorious for its epic early season snow. This year, however, one week earlier than planned and without spectators due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The 2020-2021 FIS World Cup Season kicks off in Sölden in October with a women’s and men’s giant slalom. The first event for the ladies this season takes place on Saturday. The fastest male ski racers in the world will compete against the mountain, the clock and themselves on Sunday. Rettenbach Glacier high above Sölden—with one of the steepest pitches on the tour—is one of the select few on the World Cup circuit to hold both the ladies’ and men’s events. There will be a live stream and TV broadcasts.
