Greetings from the Executive Committee Chairman
Naeba Ski Resort located in Niigata Yuzawa will host the Alpine Skiing World Cup in February 2020. In Japan, the World Cup was held at the same Naeba Ski Resort 4 years ago in February 2016 and the same events, Men’s Giant Slalom and Slalom will be held again, in which the World’s top racers will compete in this exciting tournament.
Since 1967, the Alpine Skiing World Cup has been organized by the International Ski Association and is known to be a historical tournamant held every year in about 20 cities around the world mainly in Europe and the United States. It is considered one of the world’s most popular sporting event, especially in Europe. In Japan, hosting the tournament in the same Naeba Ski Resort following the World Cup in 2016, we believe that when “speaking of Alpine skiing in Japan, Niigata, Yuzawa, Naeba, will come up in mind”, which will become a great opportunity to spread the “Snow Resort Niigata” brand image to the world. In addition, we believe that this will lead to the development of juniors for the next generation of the Alpine skiing competition in Niigata and by becoming familiar, more people will become interested in skiing. Appreciating the daily cooperation of many people concerned, we are currently preparing for the tournament. We would like to welcome many visitors to Niigata from Japan and from abroad and continue to work on to become a fabulous and successful tournament suitable for appealing “Snow Resort Niigata”.
