CRANS-MONTANA, jasa service wc Switzerland (AP) — The rescheduled women’s World Cup downhill race in Crans-Montana has been canceled because of safety reasons due to soft snow conditions.
The race was originally scheduled for Saturday but was moved to Sunday, in place of the combined event, after nearly a meter of snow fell overnight.
It was postponed for two hours on Sunday morning, before it was finally canceled.

There is also a slalom scheduled for Monday that was moved from Maribor, Slovenia.
The last time Crans-Montana held World Cup races, in 2014, the downhill also replaced the combined event after heavy fog on the Saturday.
