6-8 March, Holmenkollen was ready to welcome thousands of spectators to Skifest & RAW AIR. Unfortunately, we had to close the venue for our spectators on short notice due to the coronavirus pandemic. This was really sad, but also necessary the way things turned out.
What’s unique about Holmenkollen and our spectators
The athletes have always expressed that to participate and preferably win in Holmenkollen, is one of their highest goals. The athletes love Holmenkollen because of the atmosphere and our spectators, who cheer on every athlete in the same enthusiastic way.
In addition we have a very dedicated crew of more than thousand volunteers, who do their utmost to make the event a great and unique experience for everybody.
A challenging spring
The cancellation of the event in Holmenkollen has put the organiser in a very difficult financial situation. However, thanks to a very good cooperation with our sponsors and partners and support from among others the Municipality of Oslo and Ski-VM 2011-fondet, we are more optimistic about the future. We also received financial support from the Government, that made us able to offer the ticket buyers a refund. Deadline to get the refund was Tuesday 23. June 2020.
We would like to thank you for all the support and sympathy we have received after the cancelation, and we hope to see all of you at Skifest & Raw Air 12-14 March 2021. (See the preliminary program below).
