Sport: Next season’s schedule was finalized during the International Skiing and Snowboarding Federation’s (FIS) spring meetings in Slovenian Portoroz this week.

In total, races at the highest level will be organized at three Norwegian locations next season.

Lillehammer is only out in December with three races for both women and men, before the world’s elite head back to Norway for the Ski World Championships in Trondheim from 26 February to 9 March.

After the championship in Granåsen, the World Cup circus will visit Holmenkollen, where 10 and 20 kilometers will be walked for both women and men. As you know, there will be no five miles this time.

At the same time, the traditional cross-country sprint in Drammen is absent from the timetables for the upcoming cross-country skiing season. There was no room for it in a tightly packed program after the WC.
