Munich city World Cup event called off
MUNICH -- The World Cup Munich city event on Jan. 1 has been called off for lack of snow.
Parallel slalom World Cup races for men and women had been scheduled but unseasonably mild weather has forced organizers to give up.
Chief Munich organizer Frank Seipp says "we had to give up the fight because of warm weather and unfavorable forecasts."
The races were slated to be held at the Olympic park from the 1972 summer games.
