About EC Sprint Tarvisio, Italy

As you may know -- the countries on the northern side of the Alps have got a lot of snow, but unfortunately the Italian side is suffering from lack of snow.
The board has received questions and criticism for not informing about the situation and we take that very serious but are depending on the info we get from the organizers.
We can inform you that the organizers of the Championship are constantly working to keep up front in this issue and have informed us that the weather forecast is promising snow from Saturday next week.

A possible site for trails of 18/20 km in higher altitude is an alternative in the very neighbourhood of Tarvisio!

While the website dedicated to the FISTC EC in Tarvisio should be ready as from tomorrow at the following address, we can already now provide all members with the following information about the location and hotels.

The Tarvisio Tourism Office can be contacted and there are people speaking Italian, English, German and Slovenian. The responsable person is Mrs Cristiana TEOT, she can be reached either by mail: This email address is being protected from spambots.
