Ski Orienteering World Cup begins in Austria

The international Ski Orienteering season takes off on Monday, when the first of three SkiO World Cup races begin in Ramsau, Austria.

Sprint, Pursuit and Middle distance races await the almost 100 athletes from 11 different nations, who have entered the first World Cup round.

Among them are the two winners of the Individual SkiO World Cup from the 2021-2022 season, Daisy Kudre Schnyder (EST) and Jørgen Baklid (NOR).

Like the previous season, there will be a U23 World Cup competition as well. Judita Traubaite (LIT) and Jørgen Baklid (NOR) won last season’s edition.

Due to the current snow situation in the Alps, the competitions have been moved from Ramsau to the higher situated Taupitzalm.

SkiO World Cup Round 1 program:
Monday 9 Jan. –  Sprint
Tuesday 10 Jan. – Pursuit
Wednesay 11 Jan. – Middle
