The Upper Bavarian Ski location, in which the demanding World Cup races take place on the Kandahar, had to surrender to the Swiss Community of Crans-Montana on Wednesday in Milan on Wednesday.
There had been four applicants for the orientation of the Ski World Cup in five years: in addition to Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Crans-Montana, Norwegian Narvik and Soleutuer in Andorra.
2023 in Courchevel/Meribel
Bavaria’s Interior Minister Joachim Herrmann (CSU) had campaigned for the Ski World Cup “Dahoam” and described the possible prestige event in the Free State as a “absolute highlight”. Herrmann emphasized the established infrastructure with a view to the existing slopes Kandahar and Gudiberg. “The sports facilities are there, so it is a top application when it comes to sustainability,” he said in winter.
With the joint application by the market town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the German Ski Association (DSV) and the Garmisch ski club, those responsible wanted to bring the winter highlight into the Werdenfels Land for the third time after 1978 and 2011. When awarding the 2025 World Cup, Garmisch-Genau like Crans-Montana against Saalbach-Hinterglemm in Austria had left behind. The next World Cup will take place in 2023 in the French Courzevel/Meribel.
