Dear guests and plateau residents,
I wish you all a HAPPY NEW YEAR & a successful FIS Nordic Ski World Championships 2019 in Seefeld from the bottom of my heart!
When we got the nod in Barcelona in 2014, the year 2019 seemed way in the future. Construction plans were still in their infancy, structures were being worked out, organisational charts were missing, advertising strategies were being fine-tuned, World Cup content created, ideas collected, personnel sought .... - and now: the countdown counter stands at 43 days until the event takes place.
The World Championships Tower, the Technical Centre and the new train station in Seefeld are among the last construction sites and are currently wearing a white cloak! A good sign - because what we need are top snow conditions and weather that helps the unique backdrop here on the plateau to shine. So we are sending up some prayers to the weather gods!
Grandstand seats have been built and the Medal Plaza transformed into a worthy location for the ceremonies. You can already imagine what the celebrations will be like here for the medal winners. I hope you have already reserved your tickets?
I’ve told you a lot since the days of the ground-breaking ceremony in 2016 and have accompanied the stories with pictures. Now everything is ready and in place. Now it’s time to make my farewell with both a laugh and a tear and wish ALL of us unforgettable moments with friends during the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2019 in Seefeld! Stay on the ball and don't miss this major Nordic event!
