Uninterruptedly from 2000 to 2005, Poland hosted the European Cup in snowboard parallel slalom and parallel giant slalom. During this period, eight editions were held in our country, during which the arenas of struggle were the ski resorts in Szczyrk and Krynica-Zdrój. The first competition of this rank took place in Poland on 8 and 9 January 2000 in Szczyrk. For the last time, the snowboard European Cup in alpine competitions was held in our country on 29 January 2005. This year's European Cup will be held at the Suche Ski station. This is the first time that the Suche ski resort will host a competition of this level. In past years, this slope regularly hosted the Polish International Alpine Snowboard Championships, which were also FIS competitions. (pzn.pl)
