Ski Championships return to the Alps
From February 2nd to 15th 2009, Val d’Isère is to host the World Alpine Ski Championships. It’s a major event, as the championships haven’t been held in France since 1962. It promises to be spectacular with over 60 nations and 350 athletes involved in the 11 different skiing events. The women will be competing on the Solaise and the men on Bellevarde.
