2016 FIS Freestyle Aerials World Cup
The 2016 World Cup Freestyle Aerials are slated for night time Saturday 27th Feb here in Sierra Nevada. Artificial lighting will be in place along Crescendo piste, with the final lead off running towards the square at Pradollano. The event will be covered by live television broadcast, and with the usual light shows and sound systems will be fantastic show!
The aerials will include three different ramps, to give jumps up to 12 metres, which will be a superb spectacle especially as it will be sited right next to the village
This means that for the 2015 / 2016 season some 15 national plus 40 regional competitions will be held.
Youth development has not been forgotten, with children of 5 to 12 years old getting a new exclusive training area next to Parador / Cauchiles (by the Virgen de las Nieves ski lift).
2017 FIS SnowBoard and Freestyle Ski World Cup
Sierra Nevada has also been chosen by the FIS to host World Cup skiing in 2017. The station has already invested heavily in building a world class snow park in Sulyaires and this investment has now paid off big time.
The World Cup competition, as far as we can gather at the moment, will be split between the snow park, and a second “urban” venue just by the bubble lifts right next to Pradallona village.
The ski station has almost all the venues ready for the World Cup 2017, which will coincide with the “Universiade” which starts on 4th February.
Disciplines will include Big Air (snowboarding), Aerials (freeski), Half Pipe, snowboarding, parallel slalom, aerials, slope style, Snowboardcross, half pipe and big air. The freestyle mogul disciplines will include slope style , Ski-cross, half pipe and aerials.
