Masters World Cup 2026 5th time in Italy
19 October 2023 At their annual meeting in early October in Klosters, the board members of The World Masters Cross-Country Ski Association voted unanimously to once again award the Masters World Cup 2026 to Italy. After Dobbiaco, Folgaria, Brusson and Asiago, Sappada in the Friuli Venezia Giulia region will host the 45th Masters World Cup from 29 January to 6 February. Silvio Fauner, as representative of the bid committee of Sappada, presented his home town in the best possible way. The Masters World Cups in Italy have always been very popular with well over 1000 participants. As the Olympic Winter Games in Milan/Cortina d'Ampezzo will open on the final day of the MWC, many Masters will not miss the opportunity to combine the two events.
MWC 2025 again awarded to Klosters/SUI
3 April 2023 In the year 2025 Klosters/SUI will again be the venue for the Masters World Cup. The board members of The World Masters Cross-Country Ski Association have unanimously supported and accepted the Klosters' bid.
Already in 2017 Klosters was the venue of a successfully held Masters World Cup with 1174 Masters cross-country skiers and therefore the WMA is pleased that the proven organizing committee, first time under the leadership of Dominik Heeb, will be available again.
The Masters World Cup will start one day after the Engadin Ski Marathon, i.e. on March 10, so that all cross-country skiing enthusiasts will be able to participate in both events. On the final day of the championships, March 15, the relay competitions will be held.
