The International Ski Federation (FIS) has rescheduled the cancelled Alpine World Cup races in Beaver Creek in Val d'Isère in France.

It was announced yesterday that a lack of snow and warm weather at the American resort had forced the cancellation of planned World Cup races from December 2 to 4.

Men's downhill, super-G and giant slalom was all due to take place at the Colorado venue but organisers admitted the anticipated winter conditions "did not arrive in time".

Val d'Isère has now stepped in with the super-G race scheduled for December 2.

Downhill will follow on December 3 before giant slalom on December 4.

The French resort was already scheduled to host the next leg of the World Cup season after Beaver Creek, with giant slalom on December 10 before slalom on December 11.

Warm weather is often a problem for FIS events with the men's Alpine World Cup races in Lake Louise in Canada also cancelled this season.

Downhill was scheduled for November 26 with super-G on November 27, at what was supposed to be the second leg of the season.

These events have not yet been reallocated, with organisers hopeful that women's races in Lake Louise, set for December 2 to 4, will still go ahead.

It remains, however, a race against time, with the FIS stating: "The cold weather has arrived in Lake Louise but there is still a lot of snow-making to be done before we can confirm the World Cup races." 

Positive snow conditions have been recorded for another North American World Cup leg in Killington, with the Vermont resort hosting women's races in giant slalom and slalom on November 26 and 27 respectively.
