Men’s World Cup races canceled in Lake Louise
November 16, 2016
The Men's Audi FIS Ski World Cup competitions in Lake Louise, Canada, have been canceled due to warm temperatures, lack of snow and unfavorable weather forecasts, the International Ski Federation confirmed on Wednesday.
"A possible replacement will be communicated in due course," the Federation said in a release.
The Lake Louise races had been originally scheduled for Nov 26 and 27, but failed to receive a positive snow control from the International Ski Federation on Wednesday.
The federation generally performs snow controls 10 days before a competition. However, depending on snow conditions, the ski federation can postpone the control to give organizers the maximum amount of time to prepare the slope while still being able to guarantee the event. Such postponements normally depend on weather forecasts, snow making ability and other factors, said Jenny Wiedeke with the International Ski Federation.
A snow control for the Birds of Prey course at Beaver Creek, which is scheduled to host World Cup competition Nov. 29 to Dec. 4, is scheduled for Friday. Despite Colorado seeing similar conditions to Lake Louise so far this season, the Birds of Prey World Cup is still scheduled to take place on schedule according to a news release.
