Marking the 10th jubilee
At the beginning of next year, Sljeme will once again be host to the
Audi FIS World Cup “Vip Snow Queen Trophy” 2015, and it will also mark a
special anniversary – the jubilee 10th female slalom race. Like in
previous years, it is scheduled for January 4th, while the afternoon
hours are reserved for the always attractive and entertaining Legends
Race, which has a humanitarian character. The men will compete on
January 6th in a night slalom race.
The jubilee World Cup races will
be run by 150 of the world’s best male and female slalom skiers from 28
countries, with an entourage of more than 400 team members and
officials. The day before each race there will be a public drawing of
the starting numbers for the competitors at Ban Josip Jelačić Square,
which will be accompanied by an entertaining music programme.
the slalom races at Sljeme have only been taking place for nine years,
thanks to their excellent organization, Zagreb is recognized as a
member, albeit the youngest, of the prestigious “Club 5”, joining
Kitzbuehel, Wengen, Schladming, Val Garden and Val d’Isere in this
association of traditional organizers of World Cup races which was
founded back in 1968. Apart from being part of the prestigious club, the
slalom races at Sljeme also boast a special atmosphere which is
enhanced by the supporters, and this is why the competitors are always
happy to return to Zagreb to achieve success in their sport.
