When FIS race director Uwe Beier comes to the Carezza Dolomites ski area in late summer for the traditional piste inspection, then the next winter and therefore the next edition of the Snowboard World Cup at the foot of the Rosengarten are not far away.

This beloved obligatory event recently took place, during which a lot of news was discussed with the committed organizing committee.


This year there will be a POV tracking shot for the first time at the parallel giant slalom on Thursday, December 14th. An athlete will follow the two forerunners with a camera and provide extremely gripping images directly from the Pra di Tori piste. “The use of a drone is also being considered, which is not currently planned for alpine snowboarders. Here the FIS and of course we as organizers will try to reach an agreement together with the rights holder Infront. The use of a drone live during racing would of course be a major improvement for our discipline,” says Andreas Obkircher, OK President of the FIS Snowboard World Cup Carezza Dolomites.

FIS race director Uwe Beier informed those present - his deputy Peter Krogoll and other members of the organizing committee - about a FIS app that is currently being developed. In the future, users of this app will have the opportunity to follow the various FIS disciplines in a live stream. However, this is only possible in those countries in which the television rights intended for this have not been allocated. In Italy, live streams will continue to be available exclusively via the rights holder's applications until the end of the 2026/27 season RAI available if they are offered.

Final starts at 12.45 p.m

As part of the summer inspection, the start times for the final races of the 13th edition of the FIS Snowboard World Cup in Carezza Dolomites were also fixed. Accordingly, the decision begins at 12.45 p.m. “We had to coordinate with the Biathlon World Cup Lenzerheide in Switzerland, which can be seen on the TV program today from 14.15:80 p.m. This means we have around XNUMX minutes left to complete the finals, after which the TV broadcasters have around ten minutes for any TV break,” adds Andreas Obkircher.

The two parallel giant slalom races on Thursday, December 14th will be the World Cup decisions numbers 29 and 30 in Carezza Dolomites. The first two races on December 21, 2011 - also a parallel giant slalom - went to the Canadian Caroline Calve and “Evergreen” Roland Fischnelller from Villnöß. The Azzurro, which took third place last year, will also be at the start this year. The defending champions are the Dutch Michelle Dekker and the Austrian Andreas Prommegger - he was also born in 1980 like Filehner and is still at least as successful.
