Overview

The 1992 Nordic events were held at Les Saisies for the cross-country skiing, and at the Stade de Saut in Courcheval, for the ski jumping. Les Saisies is a resort located at 1,650 m in the Savoie, between two valleys, the Beaufortain and Val d’Arly. It is about 30 km from Albertville, and had a Nordic centre specially constructed there for the Winter Olympics. Courcheval is a resort and village in the Savoie region of the French Alps, which is part of Les Trois Vallées, the largest linked ski area in the world. The original village is Le Praz in the center of Courcheval, and the 1992 Olympic ski jumps were constructed in Le Praz. There was no change to the Nordic combined program in Albertville, which consisted of a team and individual event, both held by the Gundersen Method. The team event consisted of three skiers each.
