According to the company's CEO, Ulrika Back Eriksson, the reason for the record result is due to successful days during the World Cup competitions in cross-country skiing, which were held at Lugnet in Falun in March this year.

The days offered good weather, new competition formats, good snow conditions and could also be carried out in front of an audience.

"A strong result is not only important for the Ski Games, but also shows the rest of the skiing world that we have a strong and stable organizing organization in Falun, which is important before the decision of a new Ski World Cup 2027", says Swedish Ski Games chairman Ola Strömberg in a press release.
