The first event that reactivates the campaign for the candidacy for the World Championships involved a snow-grooming machines demonstration, an exhibition by the Ski School, the traditional torchlight descent, LED projections and fireworks
The foot of the Soldeu sector slopes in the Grandvalira ski area was the chosen setting on this Tuesday afternoon to continue the promotion of Andorra as a candidate to host the Alpine Ski World Championships in 2029. A total of 200 people, comprising of both adults and children, played their part in creating the traditional torchlight descent and the night event was further enhanced by a demonstration of snow-grooming machines; LED projections on the Avet World Cup course; an exhibition by the Demo Team from the Ski and Snowboard School and fireworks. The expectant public were able to watch proceedings from the foot of the pistes on the Soldeu platform, with the show taking place on the Ós, Bosc Fosc and Avet courses.
In the same spirit as the media campaign had been for the World Cup Finals 2027 candidacy, entitled 'It’s time to light the stars up again', this show was intended to symbolize the link between children and the future of skiing by filling what will be the competition venue for the upcoming Andorra 2023 World Cup Finals with colour and light.
The process of promoting the candidacy will continue with further events in the Soldeu sector in the Grandvalira ski area, coinciding with World Snow Day, on January 15th 2023.
