- Ski Racing
Following the example of Zagreb, adjustments to the racetrack were started in 2006 in order to accommodate FIS competitions. The safety systems are continuously adapted to the conditions on site in order to achieve optimal protection for the downhill skiers and audience. Just one season later, the track is up to FIS standards, and the first Europa Cup competitions take place.
Due to the ongoing cooperation between the International Ski Federation (FIS), the organizers, and the athletes, Bansko is ready to Europa Cup races in 2008. The first FIS Ski World Cup races, downhill and super-G in Bansko could finally be held in March 2009.
