La Molina, Spain

The 2015 IPC Para-Snowboard World Championships will be the first time a para-snowboard World Championships has been held under the governance of IPC Alpine Skiing.

Around 80 athletes from 20 countries will travel to La Molina, Spain, for the biggest gathering of riders since para-snowboard made its debut at the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games.

The competition will feature athletes in two impairment groups who will compete seperately in both disciplines - lower-limb and upper-limb.

The Spanish resort of La Molina has previously hosted IPCAS Snowboard World Cups as well as the able-bodied snowboard World Championships in 2011 and the 2013 IPC Alpine Skiing World Championships.

The Pyrenees mountain location was the site of Span's first ever ski-lift in 1943 and since that time the slopes have become a popular destination for skiers and snowboarders alike.
