The Winter Sports Federation of Portugal organizes on Saturday the national championships of Alpine Ski in slalom and of Snowboard Cross after the tests were postponed in March by lack of snow.
The track recognition is scheduled for 08:00 and the start of the race for 09:00 at Estância da Serra da Estrela.
The achievement, on another date, of the giant slalom competition in downhill skiing and the remaining snowboarding disciplines depends on the weather conditions and the possible accumulation of more snow.
The president of the federation, Pedro Farromba, said that the option to hold the shorter events on Saturday is to take advantage of the last snowfall.
“It is not the ideal conditions, because we are talking about a late blizzard and temperatures have now increased. These are the possible conditions,” he said.
Expectations for the rest of the calendar “are a lottery,” said Pedro Farromba, who says he does not know what to count in terms of weather until the end of the season.
