The ski cross and snowboard cross race directors of the International Ski Federation (FIS), Klaus Waldner and Uwe Beier, have visited Reiteralm, one of the newest resorts on the World Cup circuit.

The Austrian venue was part of the World Cup circuit for the first time earlier this year for both ski cross and snowboard cross.

Representatives from the Austrian Ski Federation, the Reiteralm Organising Committee and the FIS came together at Cross Park to review the first World Cup races held at the resort.

The outcome of the review was "very satisfying" according to the FIS, and the Organising Committee said it was working hard to make some changes to improve the course for next season, as well as following a sustainable and efficient course build.

Strong course design and management can reduce the amount of snow needed for racing.

Reiteralm organisers said these adaptions would be made in the following months as it bids to remain part of the World Cup circuit.

"The Cross Park Reiteralm has become a very good training facility for ski and snowboard cross athletes over the past years and therefore the addition of this resort into the World Cup calendars is for sure a huge benefit," the FIS said.

Reiteralm is set to be part of the 2021-2022 Ski Cross World Cup season, with a leg scheduled to take place from March 11 to 13.

Medal races for the Snowboard Cross World Cup are due to take place at the same venue on the same weekend, on March 12.
