At a little over a year from the start of the 2020 Youth Olympics, last weekend marked the season opening of the ski stations that will host Lausanne 2020 and gave winter sport fans the chance to test out the facilities in ideal conditions.
Leysin, complete with its new freestyle park, will be the venue for the FIS halfpipe and slopestyle competitions in January 2020.
Les Diablerets features a new 10 person gondola from Meilleret and, for the first time in 35 years, a FIS ratified Super G piste.
Les Tuffes, located in France and only 50 minutes from Lausanne, will host a stage of the Women’s Ski Jump World Cup.
Bring on January 2020!
