    Is it the same situation for them during the whole snowy season? Might it be that Alpine skiing has only some high season weeks and for less crowded weeks WRC would be welcome?

    Or it could skip Are for being 1 day in just in Trondheim and 1,5 days in Ostersund and more far away from Are.

    So it's not huge amounts of snow there either. It's quite dire along the entire Norrland coastline.
    However current conditions around Umeå/Vännäs probably well enough for a WRC winterrally.

    I would assume highs during christmas-new year+ during sportloven (weeks 7-10)+ easter breaks. So the rally weekend conflicts with the weekend at the start of the first sportlovet week.

    Agreed for Vännas (and further in lands) but probably not Umeå though.

    I only think UMeå as host city and possible SP/HQ location. Stages could be wherever in a radius of 150K.

    Roads are really soft for a month or two and that can create big holes like where drainage pipes are, Aurskog Høland rally just east of Oslo in Norway which runs in start of June of all things had stages cancelled a few years ago because of it

    Sorry to say, but up to 29th of January there´s not even many nights with minusdegrees... (In Torsby area)

    I´m not pessimist, but I think RS is in real danger...

    First cancellation since 1990 looking likely. Cant see a repeat of '05 being acceptable for anyone.
