Three weeks ago the organizers of Pokal Loka didn't know how to bring forth this year's programme. The weather and snow conditions were not friendly. Even more the whole Slovenia suffered with ice incrusted trees, electrical pillars and wires. Great damage, one third of the country was without electricity and water.

Finally the weather and the working hands of the domestic club members enabled to carry out the whole foreseen events: on Friday the parallel slalom on brownish snow in the old town of Skofja Loka, on Saturday and Sunday races on the slopes of Stari vrh.

The rivalry of the participants was pretty sharp. Among 32 participated countries Austrians, Germans, Norwegians, Croates, Slovenians and French were stepping out but also some individuals from Bulgaria, Sweden, BIH, Poland and Czech Republic shined. The winners were in the category U-14 Ula Podrepsek and Neja Dvornik both Slovenia, Simon Oberhamberger - Austria and Wilhelm Normannseth - Norway, in the category U-16 Lana Zbasnik and William Vukelic both Croatia, Julia Pronnet (for the fifth time in Pokal Loka) and Sion Demattio both Germany.
