History of EYOWF
Springboard to Senior Events. The history of the European Youth Olympic Winter Festival dates back to the Italian resort Aosta, in 1993. The continental youth elite competed for medals in five disciplines: Alpine Skiing, Cross Country Skiing, Biathlon, Figure Skating, and Short Track.
Since then, many future stars introduced themselves during winter Festivals. They then became winners and medallists at the Olympic Games, World Championships, European Championships, and World Cups. Ireland has been competing since 1999.
