The men’s and women’s super-combined slalom races, which were due to take place on the morning of Tuesday (11 March), are now happening in the afternoon from 2pm (MSK).

Fog on the slopes of Rosa Khutor have meant changes to the alpine skiing schedule for the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Games.

The men’s and women’s super-combined slalom races, which were due to take place on the morning of Tuesday (11 March), are now happening in the afternoon from 2pm (MSK).

The men’s and women’s super-G races of the super-combined have been moved to 14 March from 2pm-4pm, replacing the women’s slalom which will now be held on 12 March from 9am and the second races at midday.

The men’s slalom will run according to the current schedule on 13 March.

An full updated schedule is available at Paralympic.org.

The race jury and coaches continue to keep a close eye on the weather conditions in order to ensure the safety of the competition.
