Third Slovenian edition of IPC world cup in alpine skiing was held between January 18th to 20th in Kranjska Gora. It was also the first ever IPC world cup that was available to audiences around the world via livestreaming.
Athletes from 20 countries competed at the FIS slope Podkoren in Kranjska Gora in excellent, natural and technical snow conditions. Different stakeholders from the world of sports and tourism supported by private and institutional partners worked together to organize trainings and 3 competitions – one giant slalom and two slalom races.
