2020 FIS Nor-Am Cup
We're Hosting the First Ever Event!
Winter4Kids at the National Winter Activity Center, in partnership with U.S. Ski & Snowboard and the International Federation of Skiing (FIS), has been selected to host the first ever NorAm Cup parallel slalom event in the United States. Taking place on February 14, 2020 in Vernon, New Jersey, the NorAm Cup will offer this new format with head-to-head, knockout competition featuring more than 60 male and 60 female athletes competing for $75,000, the largest prize offering yet. It will be an exciting and engaging event for spectators, featuring multiple world class athletes from North America and beyond, in an elimination-style race to the finish.
The NorAm Cup is the second-highest level of ski racing in North America, and serves to prepare athletes for the FIS World Cup, the highest level of alpine skiing competition. Parallel slalom is a relatively new format to the NorAm circuit, first included in 2018. U.S. Ski & Snowboard is promoting this format at the NorAm level in an effort to develop future World Cup parallel champions.
This will be the first NorAm ski race in held in New Jersey. This event will bring 120 athletes, along with coaches, trainers, technical support teams, and fans to the state. For many, this will be their first visit to New Jersey, and we know it will be an exciting and memorable one.
