Change Of Format For Val Müstair Stage – Tour De Ski 2022/2023

The current snow situation in Val Müstair, Switzerland, forced FIS to adjust the racecourse of the competitions on January 1, 2023. Details and the day-by-day schedule can be found below.

According to a FIS press release, “due to the current critical snow situation, the use of course in Val Müstair (SUI) had to be adapted and results in a change of format for the competitions on 1st January 2023,” and continues: “the scheduled 10km C Pursuit will be replaced with a 10km C Mass start. Starting times remain the same as scheduled.”

Tour de Ski 2022/2023

Tour de Ski season 2022/2023 starts on New Year’s Eve. Here you can find the complete program from the Sprint prologue on December 31 to the final climb to Alpe Cermis on January 8. 

Now in its 17th edition, the traditional stage race consists of seven competitions over nine days in three different countries, and it’s the fifth round of the 2022/2023 FIS World Cup. 

The International Ski and Snowboard Federation has introduced several changes to the event. This year, women and men will race the same distances on all stages in this winter’s Tour de Ski. Equal distances for women and men were adopted during the FIS Congress in Milan in May and were introduced in the World Cup this winter, and the rules will also apply to Tour de Ski. 

During the autumn FIS meetings in Zurich, Switzerland, the cross-country skiing committee adopted radical changes in several areas, including increasing prize money and the new distribution of World Cup points. 

The prize money has been increased to 326.000 Swiss Francs, equally distributed for both genders, and awarded to the 20 best skiers. 

Also, the overall cup winner now only gets 300 points, compared to 400 points previously. But the athletes finishing behind the winners can celebrate: third place now gives 270 points instead of 240, and the overall score for the eighth place is 207 points instead of 128. Thus, an overall win in the Tour de Ski will be less decisive for overall victory in the World Cup. 

In addition, this winter’s Tour de Ski starts a few days later than usual in recent years. 

The first stage takes place in Val Müstair, Switzerland, on New Year’s Eve, December 31. There are two stages: a skating sprint (31/12) and then the scheduled 10km classic pursuit (01/01) will be replaced with a 10km classic mass start. 

The following two stages will be held in Oberstdorf, Germany, with a 10km classic and a 20km freestyle race, on January 3 and 4, respectively. 

The Tour de Ski ends in Val di Fiemme, Italy.

Three stages will be held in Val di Fiemme on January 6, 7, and 8, and as usual, with the final stage up to Alpe Cermis.
