Championship details

2022 Update

We have continued to keep a watchful eye on the pandemic and how this might affect our event. In light of recent developments, IAPS must act cautiously and have decided to make a definitive decision whether to proceed with hosting the skiing championships 2022 on Monday, 10 January 2022.

We hope by January to have a clearer picture of the situation and what this might mean for our event. I appreciate this is not the news you would have liked to hear but I do hope you understand why we must be cautious.

I will be in touch in the new year to let you know what decision has been made. The Bulferetti group are aware of this and like us, hope that the picture is more positive come the new year and we can move forward with the 2022 championships!
