Snowboard World Cup tour loses 2nd Big Air event
OBERHOFEN, Switzerland -- The International Ski Federation says organizers have cancelled a Snowboard World Cup scheduled at Stockholm on Nov. 17 "due to economical reasons."
Snowboarders start earning points at World Cups this season to qualify for the Sochi Winter Olympics in February 2014.
It's the second Big Air event lost from this season's World Cup calendar after the London stop on Oct. 27 was cancelled last month for financial reasons.
FIS says the British and Swedish ski federations hope to return to the World Cup schedule next season.
