At its last meeting, the Standing Committee decided on some adjustments to the "Regulations Participation and Competitions".
The most important changes concern the cross-country races:
- The races in classic style will be held as "pursuit races" from 2022. The starting order in these pursuit races will be determined by the placing in the preceding freestyle race.
- The relay race will be held with "mixed" relay teams from 2022. A relay team will be formded by 2 women and 2 men. The distance for the women is 5 km, for the men 7.5 km. One lady and one gentleman run the course in classic style, the second lady and the second gentleman run the course in freestyle.
Each bank can register up to six mixed relay teams. A bank can therefore have a total of 24 athletes (12 women and 12 men) in the race. Previously, 18 participants (two women's and four men's relay teams of 3 athletes each) could be registered per bank for the relay race.
The Regulations for athletes with handicap (para alpine skiers) in the giant slalom are new.
These are the amended paragraphs in the "Regulations Participation and Competitions":
1.8 Competition Jury
2.2 Number of Relays
3.1 Cross-country Individual Race Classification
3.3 Classification cross-country relay races
5.1 - 5.8 Individual Cross-Country - Adjustment
6.1 Relay Cross-Country - Adjustment
Appendix to Regulations
B. Prize giving Number of prizes per relay team
F. Starting Intervals Cross Country Classic Style race as Pursuit race
Returning to Carezza Dolomites18/03/2021
As we know by now, the 61st Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo 2022 will return to the Dolomites in the Carezza ski resort from 23 to 29 January 2022. Always assuming that the development of the pandemic doesn't throw a spanner in the plans again.
Here are some dates to keep in mind.
Hotel reservations can be made from May 2021. The website of the local Organising Committee will be updated and published within April. The list of partner hotels of the local Organising Committee including prices will be published on the website. There you will also find information about hotel reservations and other important information about the event.
As before, the deposit of 20% of the accommodation costs to the hotels must be paid by 31 October 2021. If participation should not be possible due to the ongoing critical pandemic development in autumn / winter 2021/2022, cancellation should be possible free of charge.
The registration period for participating in the event runs from 01 November to 31 December 2021. As always, registrations can be made via our website under the menu item "Registration".
The 2021 Interbancario is cancelled27/06/2020
The decision was certainly not an easy one. We tried to take our time with it, in the expectation that the Corona nebulae would clear up a bit in the meantime. In view of the continuing uncertainty, we then decided to suspend the Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo for one year. The event planned for 2021 will be postponed to the following year 2022.
There are several reasons for the postponement. Here are just a few of them:
- The health of the participants is the most important thing to us. It can be assumed that the Sars-CoV-2 virus will still be in circulation next winter. There is also the danger of a second wave. By the end of the current year, no vaccine against the virus will probably be available.
- The Interbancario is a major event with more than 1,000 participants. During the evening events and prize-giving ceremonies, it will be impossible to comply with any rules that may still exist in January 2021 to protect the participants. Nor is it certain today that major events with such crowds of people will be allowed to take place at all.
- Many of the participants belong to the more vulnerable risk group. They and others will avoid large gatherings of people out of caution. The assumption that the Interbancario would take place in January 2021 with only a few participants is not entirely absurd.
- After the total blockade of all preparatory measures due to the restrictions caused by the virus, the Organizing Committee in Kranjska Gora is also several months behind schedule. An international event such as the Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo requires a great deal of organisation and a sufficiently long lead time for preparation.
- In addition, the local Organizing Committee lacks some of the funding from public authorities, sponsors and partners, which has been severely cut or cancelled due to the economic slump caused by the "lockdown".
A year without Interbancario will be sorely missed by all of us. But we will make good use of the time to put on another great and spectacular Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo in 2022.
All has changed30/03/2020
A bit more than two months ago we finished a fantastic Interbancario week in the heart of the South Tyrolean Dolomites under Rosengarten and Latemar, with exciting competitions in cross-country skiing, snowboarding and giant slalom, with entertaining evenings together.
Here you can find photos and videos:
- Media library Interbancario
- Facebook Interbancario
- YouTube Interbancario
- Homepage Organising Committee Carezza
Since then the world has changed fundamentally. We are all fighting a virus now. Our health comes first, everything else has faded into the background.
The Annual Meeting of the Standing Committee in Kranjska Gora in March also fell victim to the virus. Decisions on important issues are therefore still pending.
In any case, we will keep you up to date and inform you promptly about new developments.
Stay healthy, everyone.
New in the Regulations - New in the Standing Committee04/02/2020
The Standing Committee met several times also during the Interbancario week in Carezza to prepare important decisions, but also to take decisions.
Minor adjustments have been made to the Regulations:
- Not only will the race days for the individual categories change every year as before (rotation), but in future the starting times for these categories on the respective race day will also change.
- Several indestructible, over 80-year-old racers enrich our Ski Meeting every year with their participation. They are also the first to start in the cat. G, regardless of their starting group. For them, the starting group 0 in the Cat. G will be officially introduced.
- The registration deadline for the relay races from 2021 will be brought forward to 3 p.m. on the day before the relay races (previously 7 p.m.) in order to have more time for preparing the start lists for the relay races.
Further decisions are in preparation, such as the introduction of separate categories for disabled athletes.
New in the Standing Committee
Alain Desfonds (Credit Agricole France), a member of the Standing Committee since 2017, submitted his resignation last year. He has now been replaced by Philippe Dubois (Groupe BPCE Sports).
We thank Alain for his commitment and his support and wish Philippe every success and enthusiasm as a member of the Standing Committee.

Treatment of personal data - consent09/10/2019
As you could read in our latest news and Newsletter July 2019 from 29.07.2019, the regulations have been adjusted this year in some points. Among other things chapter 9 - Processing and protection of personal data - has been added.
As the owner of personal data we are obliged to obtain the consent of each participant for the processing of such data.
- The information sheet can be downloaded from our website. It can also be downloaded from the registration portal (accessible and active from 01 November 2019).
- The participant signs the declaration of consent and waiver and hands it over to the team leader. The latter will hand it over to the race office.
- Also one-man/woman-teams will hand over the declaration to the race office when he/she picks up the start package with the starting number.
The declaration of consent and waiver remains valid for the following years and must therefore only be submitted once.
We look forward to seeing you all in January in Carezza - Dolomites.
What's new in the Regulations?22/07/2019
The Regulations with new contents are now online. This has changed:
Chapter 1.3 - The new paragraphs 2 and 3 of this chapter contain new admission criteria for participation in the Interbancario.
Chapter 9.1 - This new chapter is dedicated to information on the protection of personal data.
Chapter 10 - Annex to the Regulations - For many years the participation fees have remained unchanged. Now they have been slightly increased to 30 € (previously 27 €) per competitor / discipline and 60 € (previously 54 €) for the cross-country relay team.
Decisions and Amendments05/05/2019
On a weekend at the beginning of March, the Standing Committee met for its annual conference in Welschnofen/Nova Levante. Welschnofen/Nova Levante is the gateway to the Carezza Dolomites ski area, where the 60th Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo 2020 will take place. The conference programme also included a joint meeting with the Organising Committee of Carezza Dolomites.
Here you will find the information about the most important decisions and the resulting changes.
Extended rules for admission to the Interbancario
Restructuring and rationalisation measures in banks are normally having an impact on personnel policy. Early retirements, severance payments, termination agreements of various kinds or sabbaticals are sometimes the result.
With an extended regulation of the admission requirements, we are attempting to enable the persons affected by these measures to continue to participate in the Interbancario. A corresponding change to the regulations is in preparation.
Privacy - Consent to the publication of photos
The registration for the Interbancario in the future also includes the consent to the publication of photos.
Participation fee adjusted
From November 2019 the participation fee will be 30 Euro per participant and discipline and 60 Eurofor each cross-country relay team.
Race tracks and ski pass prices
The alpine ski and snowboard races are held on the FIS-homologated Laurin III slope. The common finish area for all categories is directly at the Frommer Alm, where the mountain station of the Laurin I cable car, which leads up from Welschnofen/Nova Levante, is also located.
The multi-day ski passes at new special prices are now also valid for the entire neighbouring Fassa Valley.
You can find all the information you need on the homepage of the Organising Committee of Carezza Dolomites www.interbancario2020.it.

Thanks and recognition19/10/2018
Severino Dinoni passed away on the 5th of October.
Severino Dinoni was a member of the Standing Committee of the Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo from 1988 to 2012. The Interbancario community has lost a passionate skier and a committed supporter.
Already in December 2015, our long-time Vice President, member of the Standing Committee from 1980 to 2014, Gustl Prohaczka, has passed away.
Our thanks and recognition go to both of them.

Visit to the summery Maria Alm06/09/2018
Actually, much has already been fixed regarding the 59th Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo 2019 in Maria Alm. The local Organizing Committee with President Franz Bauer is already quite active.
But: The expectations for the next Interbancario are high. We all want to look forward to an extremely interesting, varied Interbancario week with new offers and many highlights.
A meeting in August in Maria Alm between members of the Standing Committee and the Local Organizing Committee was used to clarify details of the racing and evening program. This included a meeting with the timekeepers of RaceTimePro.
New Regulations Are Online07/08/2018
The new version of our Regulations is now online. The section 07 "Snowboard" is completely new. We have extended the instructions for the transfer of participation fees, as well as the section on results (point 3.4.). In addition, the Regulations contain some useful adjustments and clarifications.

Slopes: challenging and varied
An event like the Interbancario requires forward-looking planning over several years and diligent work and preparation throughout the year.
Like every year, the Standing Committee met again this March in the venue of the next Interbancario for its spring session.
This includes a visit to cross-country slopes and giant slalom race-courses. Together with the Organizing Committee, the course of the two race tracks for giant slalom, the start positions for the single categories and the finish area have been fixed.
Our conclusion, which applies to both the cross-country skiing slopes and the giant slalom slopes:
challenging, but also varied and interesting. It will be fun for everyone.
So we can look forward to the next Interbancario from the 26th of January to the 2nd of February 2019 in Maria Alm.

Extra shifts and additional efforts25/01/2018
The organizers of the Interbancario 2018, together with the Standing Committee, had some challenges to tackle on Marguns and in Pontresina.
Weather determines program
The reason for this was the weather, which dominated the event from Tuesday on, with snowfall, strong wind and fog. Extra shifts were necessary to adapt the racing program and to communicate the amendments. Some decisions could only be taken early in the morning of the same day, at 07.00 o‘clock on Plateau Nair (2.660 m).
That is why all those who contributed to the success of the Interbancario 2018 deserve a sincere "thank you". The Co-Presidents of the Organizing Committee, Martin Berthod and Jan Steiner, Martina Hänzi as a reference point in the rather turbulent event, Wim Rossel as omnipresent race director of the alpine races, Stephan Müller as a committed race director of the cross-country competitions, the timekeepers, all helpers in the race office, on the slopes and along the trails have done great things.
Special thanks are also due to all the participants, who resisted wind and bad weather never losing their good mood and their enthusiasm for the Interbancario
Thank you and see you in Maria Alm

Looking forward to the next winter season 2017-1801/04/2017
All over Europe we are now enjoying the warmer seasons of the year, yet at the same time we are al- ready looking forward to the next winter season 2017-18 and to the 58th Ski Meeting Interbancario Eu- ropeo which will take place in St. Moritz and in Pontresina (Switzerland) from 13 to 20 January 2018.
In a joint meeting between the Organising Committee of St. Moritz / Pontresina 2018 and the Standing Committee, the course for next winter’s Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo was set and some important programme items and speci c procedures were de ned.
At the same time, the yearly spring meeting of the Standing Committee (SC) was held. Given the wi- thdrawal of four members of the Standing Committee at the beginning of February 2017 at the end of the event in Olang/Antholz, vacant positions had to be lled and the single organs of the Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo had to be rede ned. Please nd further detailed information under the heading “Standing Committee” and “News”.
During this meeting, the Standing Committee had an extensive work programme and dealt with recur- ring issues such as amendments of the regulations, the statement of accounts, as well as other relevant issues, which are of great importance for the development of the Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo.
Among others, the discussions revolved around the venues for the Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo in the years to come and the requirements of the future organizers. Furthermore, a rst step was taken towards creating a new communication platform with the aim of a better exchange of information bet- ween participants and the Standing Committee. In addition, a decision was taken regarding the collec- tion of ideas in order to advance the development of the format of the event. An international working group made up especially of young participants of the Ski Meeting Interbancario Europeo will deal with the latter issue.
