Masters World Cup

Welcome to
The World Masters Cross-Country Ski Association

Association for Masters Cross-Country Skiers

WMA was formed in February 1982 as a worldwide association for masters cross-country skiers. The Association provides a common international platform for top competitive skiers as well as for those who simply enjoy racing, regardless of the ranking.

Yearly Masters World Cups

Foundation for the yearly organized and Masters World Cups called events has been layed by the Canadian Bill Gairdner in Uppsala when he proposed the founding of a worldwide masters association. This announcement became executed during a meeting in Zürich on June 13, 1982. The representatives of 14 skiing nations concluded the foundation of “The World Masters Cross-Country Ski Association”, called WMA.

Masters World Cup 2023 again in Seefeld/AUT

25 January 2021    WMA has received an application from the organisers of the Tartu Ski Marathon, Estonia, for MWC 2023. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic situation, bidders from Otepää had to withdraw their application for 2023 and to postpone it until a later year to be determined.

Fortunately, the SC Monte Kaolino Hirschau, Germany, a well-known cross-country skiing organiser in Bavaria, jumped in at short notice. The experienced team already organized the MWC with 1070 participants in Seefeld/AUT in 2003. In 2023, the MWC will once again be carried out on the varied Seefeld cross-country skiing track net. Proposed date is March 18-24.
