“The upcoming season is a very important one, with the Winter Paralympics being held in Pyeongchang, South Korea," said Dimitrije Lazarovski, head of World Para Snow Sports.
“All winter Para athletes have trained very hard for the past three seasons to reach the Winter Paralympics in their best possible form and deliver outstanding performances once again on the biggest stage of all.
“For that reason, we wanted to create the most diverse and competitive World Cup calendars possible, in order to give more athletes from around the globe further opportunities to compete in the highest level.”
The Pyeongchang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games are due to take place from March 9 to 18.
