Levi, Finland -International Ski Federation (FIS) officials confirmed Thursday that the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup slalom races slated for Nov. 12-13 in Levi, Finland have been canceled due to lack of snow.

“The decision was clear in the end, since there was no snow on the race hill on the day of the snow control and the forecast didn’t promise any significant cold front. We can’t postpone the races by a week, since the speed events in Lake Louise (Canada) would be too close in the calendar,” said General Secretary of the organizing committee, Mikko Saarinen.
