Seefeld in the Tirol has been named as the host resort for the event. It was to have taken place last winter but was cancelled due to Covid-19.
It is due to take place March 15th- 19th 2022 straight after the end of the 2022 Winter Paralympics in Beijing.
Virtus supports athletes with an intellectual impairment, autism or Downs syndrome and is a member of the International Paralympic Committee.
The Austrian resort hosted the Nordic World Ski Championships in 2019.
“I would like to congratulate Virtus Austria for winning the bid to host the event,” said Virtus President Marc Truffaut.
“It was unfortunate that we had to postpone this event from 2021 to 2022, however I am very positive that this time we will come back stronger,” said Virtus President, Marc Truffaut.
“With the expertise of our Organising Committee in organising FIS events in 2019, this event will undoubtedly will be one of the spectacular skiing event Virtus members have witnessed before.”
