First events of the season in Vysočina Arena cancelled

Due to lack of snow and current warm weather the first events of the season scheduled in Vysočina Arena were cancelled. Cross country skiing race and also the Czech Biathlon Cup, which both should take place at the end of the year had to be cancelled. Warm weather with occasional rain also prevented the production of artificial snow.

Temperature rise stopped the snow cannons

Production of artificial snow had to be stopped because of the warm weather. Current supplies don't even last enough to create a circuit with a minimum length of 1.5 km. The season highlight  in Vysočina Arena - the BMW IBU Biathlon World Cup is not in danger, as long as it starts in nearly two months, but the previous events scheduled before and after Christmas are certainly unsafe.

Snow cannons turned ON

Long waiting for the first frost, which would allow the production of artificial snow, ended on Monday at two o’clock in the morning. At that moment the organizers gradually initiated the work of eighteen snow cannons. The temperature was close to three degrees below zero, which is not quite ideal weather. But regards to the slow beginning of winter there is no time for needless waiting.
