The ISMF in collaboration with its Italian member federation Federazione Italiana Sport Invernali and the Local Organising Committee of the Marmotta Trophy is pleased to confirm the realisation of the World Cup stage to be held in Martell, Italy. The event will include a Sprint race on Saturday 20 and an Individual race on Sunday 21 February 2021.

The event will take place except for cases of force majeure not depending on the International Federation.

Marco Mosso, the ISMF Vice-President Marketing & Communication, affirms: “Another race weekend has just concluded and, personally, I am glad that each time the ISMF has been confirming all the events. We absolutely know that the season we are facing is rather challenging and demanding, but the ISMF is proving that with commitment, willpower and support from international referees as well as from the various organising committees it is possible to create high-level events. I believe that the Marmotta Trophy stage can be an excellent springboard for the skimo athletes to get prepared for the ISMF World Championship to be held at the beginning of March in Andorra”.
