Alpine ski World Cup races in St Anton cancelled, Zagreb also in doubt

Alpine ski World Cup races in St Anton, Austria on January 9 and 10 have been cancelled because of lack of snow, organizers said Sunday.

A women's downhill and super-g were scheduled for the race weekend.

Although the course could be prepared with artificial snow, there was not enough snow for crash zones.

"Snow conditions are good for recreational skiing but don't allow for a perfect preparation of World Cup race," the international ski federation FIS said.

Officials are to decide on a possible replacement.

World Cup men's and women's slalom races set for next weekend in Zagreb are also in doubt. A snow control is to be carried out Monday.
