Many events and dates that cannot absolutely be missed
Bedrichov (Liberec) – It is a winter snowy landscape that we see when looking out of the window, the one that every skier likes. Finally, after the fear in the past weeks to be forced to modify the race course, the snow has come to cover the landscape and Jizerska 50 has everything set to go on the original track.
The weekend is as usual very rich with events for everybody and opened already yesterday with Bib distributions (Nisa center in Liberec) and with the commemorative meeting for the 50 years of the Peru expedition, where climbers died in Peru in 1970. To commemorate these passionate skiers, each participant will find a memory with the names on the medal, to keep them in our memories.
