Tour de Ski 2016: schedule


Tour de Ski is back as usual in January 2016. It is a part of the FIS Ski World Cup 2015-16 and since there are no World Championships or Winter Olympics in 2016 we expect the world’s greatest skier participating in one week of great nordic skiing. The name of the competition was inspired by the bicycle contest Tour de France. The first Tour de Ski was held in 2006/2007. In Tour de Ski 2016, the 30 best skiers that have completed all events will get points that adds to their total in the World Cup that runs from November 2015-March 2016.
