PistenBully will also act as supplier to the Nordic World Championships in 2015. This time in Falun, Sweden.
Falun is the centre of national and international winter sport competitions in Sweden. As well as being the headquarters of the Swedish Ski Association, Falun is also famous for the Lugnet sport and leisure complex on the edge of the city, which is home to the Lugnet Ski Jumps,as well as extensive cross-country tracks and slopes. These jumps continue to be a popular venue for various international competitions.
The city in central Sweden is now in the midst of preparations for the 50th Nordic Ski World Championships in February 2015. From 18th February to 1st March 2015, the city of almost 40,000 inhabitants, which is famous for its copper mines, will play host for the fourth time in its history to the world's best skiers as they battle it out for medals in the disciplines of Cross-Country, Nordic Combination and Ski Jumping.
Falun is well-equipped for the big event. Some 27,000 beds stand ready; up to 200,000 visitors are expected. The town has invested heavily to ensure it puts on a good show. Especially, of course, in the Lugnet Ski Jumps. The renovation of both jumps alone has cost around 21 million euros. The standard jump has been rebuilt with a construction point of K 90, while the big jump has been extended from K 115 to K 120.
PistenBully has been part of this for many years as the official supplier to the Nordic World Championships. In Val di Fiemme, just as in Oberstdorf or Ramsau, and also many times in the past in Falun. Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG provides the perfect technology with its PistenBully – ensuring the best athletes in the world also have the best groomed slopes on which to compete. The organisers rely on the comprehensive experience of Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG and the renowned reliability of the firm's technical support.
Falun has been trusting PistenBully for many years and has ordered the right vehicles specifically for the forthcoming event. Such a major event imposes very particular requirements – that's why PistenBully supplies its customers with additional vehicles during the Nordic World Championships. This ensures the hosts can guarantee perfectly groomed tracks and jumps at any time.
We're already looking forward to successful World Championships!
