Due to the successful organisation and execution of the men’s European Cup ski racing held in Soldeu earlier this month, the International Ski Federation (FIS) have announced that Soldeu is a firm candidate to host the European Cup finals in 2014.

As well as the Avet slope in Soldeu, Grandvalira are working hard to ensure the Aliga slope in El Tarter attains FIS approval for competitions which should be accomplished over the summer.

There was praise for the course from Race Director, Jordi Pujol, who said “the slope was spectacular, easily World Cup standard, and it held up perfectly all weekend, without the need for water injection. Both the skiers and the experts tell me that Avet is a difficult World Cup slope, and is not a European Cup course”.

The decision will be made in May 2013, so we hope Soldeu is successful!
