"Vip Snow Queen Trophy 2008" press conference held today in Zagreb
The organizers of Ladies' and Men's FIS WC slalom events at Mount Sljeme above Zagreb, today hosted the press conference at the Westin Zagreb hotel.

At today's conference in Zagreb, Croatian Ski Association, and the "Snow Queen Trophy" Organizing Committee have informed the public on the arrangements for Ladies' and Man's Audi FIS World Cup slalom events, "Vip Snow Queen Trophy 2008". The events are scheduled for February 15 and 17, 2008 at Mount Sljeme above Zagreb.

For the first time in WC history, Sljeme is playing host to both Ladies' and Men's slalom events!

Croatian Ski Association looks forward to great performances of its "snow princesses" Ana Jelusic, Nika Fleiss, Matea Ferk, Sofija Novoselic, and their male counterparts Ivica Kostelic, Dalibor Samsal, and probably, Danko Marinelli.

Costs for the "Snow Queen Trophy 2008" are estimated at about HRK28 million, the quarter of the sum being covered by the city of Zagreb.

The attraction of the event will certainly be the "Hypo Zagreb Ski Legends" charitable race the profit of which will be donated to the Gornja Bistra special hospital for chronic child diseases.

Some of the legends who are to participate in the race are Alberto Tomba, Marc Girardelli, Janica Kostelic, Ingemar Stenmark, Stefan Eberharter, Bojan Krizaj and Franz Klammer. They will compete in parallel giant slalom. The event is taking place on Sunday, February 17, 2008 at 5:00 p.m..

The races will be live broadcasted by 10 world TVs. 400 accredited reporters will be present at the event, 150 of them being foreign journalists.

The general sponsor of the races is Croatian mobile network company VIP, which is also the Croatian Ski Team’s general sponsor.

Ladies' slalom event is scheduled for Friday, February 15, 2008. The first run is to start at 15:00 p.m. and the second one is scheduled for 18:00 p.m.. Men's slalom event is to take place on Sunday, February 17, with the first run scheduled for 10:15 a.m. and the second one for 13:15 p.m.

Everything is set up and ready for the races. Sljeme is presently covered in 80 cm of snow. So far, 41000 cubic meters of water have been used for artificial snow making, and snow cannons have been operating for 17 days alltogether. All the runs are groomed, and the snow cannons are still operating only at the Green Run.

The already traditional international concert at the Ban Jelacic Square will be taking place after bib numbers draw. The performers will be announced later. The novelty at the square this season is the demonstrative "Red Bull Snowmobile Show".

The tickets for the Sljeme WC event will again include food and drink, which will make things easier for the visitors.

Last but not least, there will be no discrimination at the Sljeme WC event: the prize fund will be the same for both Ladies and Men.
