The women's ski jumping World Cup in Rasnov, Romania, has been canceled due to a lack of snow. As the FIS World Ski Federation announced on Thursday, the two competitions scheduled for next weekend (February 16-18), as well as the two qualifying jumps, will not be able to take place due to “unfavorable snow conditions.” ”.

The Ski Jumping World Cup in Romania must be canceled due to “unfavorable snow conditions.”

Currently in Romania there are double-digit temperatures. In addition to the already little snow, this means that hardly any artificial snow can be produced. Furthermore, the weather forecasts are unfavorable and make it impossible to hold the event. In Zao, Japan, one of the two individual competitions had to be canceled due to weather in January. It is not yet clear whether there will be a recovery jump.

In 2016, the final of the ski jumping season in Rasnov could not be held due to lack of snow and high temperatures. Due to the cancellation, ski jumpers will have to take a break until the end of February. A World Cup will be held on February 24 and 25 in Hinzenbach, Austria.
