Snowboard Cross World Cup
- 20 December 2018 - 21 December 2018
Breuil-Cervinia-Plan Maison cable car or Crétaz chairlift + Pancheron chairlift
Breuil-Cervinia, the famous skiing spot in the Aosta Valley on the Italian side of the Matterhorn, will be the setting of the World Cup for the second time, hosting an enthusiastic Snowboard Cross – SBX competition.
For those of you not familiar with this speciality, it is a spectacular race that sees a group of athletes set off together and face a slope that includes parabolic curves, jumps, steps and apparently flat sections with a high risk of riders colliding.
The best riders in the world will challenge one another in both the men’s and women’s competitions.
With the preliminaries on Thursday 20 and the finals on Friday 21 December, the week running up to Christmas is set to be thrilling, not least because you’ll be able to see the athletes on the slopes in Breuil-Cervinia from the Tuesday.
