SANTA CATERINA VALFURVA, Italy — The second men’s World Cup giant slalom this weekend was postponed for a day and moved to Monday as heavy snowfall in the Italian Alps made the race impossible on Sunday.

The International Ski Federation said that “for today’s race the safety for athletes cannot be guaranteed.”

FIS said the start times remained the same for Monday’s race, with the first run starting at 4 a.m. ET (Peacock Premium) and the second run at 7 a.m. (Olympic Channel and Peacock Premium).

Monday had already been scheduled as a possible reserve day after weather predictions looked unfavorable for days.

A giant slalom took place on Saturday after course workers cleared the slope of up to 31 inches of fresh snow,.

The race was won by Filip Zubcic of Croatia.

The event was moved from Val d’Isere because of a lack of snow in the French resort.
