Ruka (FIN) will hold the first World Cup Season 2022/2023. Here, Maja Dahlqvist (SWE) during the sprint in Ruka last season.

The World Cup season 2022/2023 has several new changes compared to previous years. For the first time, the women and men will compete at the same distances. This change means that 10 and 20km will be the new basic distances together with sprints, and these are found in the calendar with more frequency.

The mixed relays tested for the first time at the World Cup competitions in Falun at the end of last season will now be a permanent event and will be run on two occasions during the coming season.

The World Cup points system will also be redesigned so that the excitement in the cup will be live to the end. Exactly what this system will look like is not yet known.

The season begins with a block of competitions in Scandinavia, where Ruka, Finland, is the first event. The World Cup then continues to Norway and Switzerland before the Christmas break. The Tour de Ski starts on New Year’s Eve and then, after seven stages, finishes in Val di Fiemme.

This is followed by a city sprint in Milan, followed by further competitions in the Alps before the World Championships in Planica, Slovenia, at the end of February. After the World Championships, the World Cup returns to Scandinavia to end with weekends in the classic cities of Oslo, Falun, and Lahti.

City sprints in Drammen and Tallinn are also included in the season finale.

The World Cup program will be confirmed by the FIS Council next week.
