The International Ski Federation has rescheduled the men's World Cup super-G, downhill and giant slalom, which were cancelled in Beaver Creek, Colorado, because of unseasonably warm weather.
The races will now take place Dec. 2-4 in Val d'Isere, France, the federation said Saturday.
For the first time since 2007, the men will race speed events on the O.K. course in Val d'Isere.
The men will remain in Val d'Isere for previously scheduled giant slalom and slalom races Dec. 10-11.
A lack of snow also forced the cancellation of the men's World Cup speed races Nov. 26-27 in Lake Louise, Alberta. No makeup dates for those races have been announced yet.Articled from the CBC RSS Syndication CBC.ca - RSS Feeds Copyright is that of their respective owners (CBC) Calgary News Releases
