Marius Robyr and Hugo Steinegger are honoured at the Valais Sports Awards

Marius Robyr and Hugo Steinegger have been celebrated once again. They were awarded the « Special Prize » by journalists at the Mérites sportifs valaisans awards ceremony in Savièse. After doing everything in their power to ensure the return of Alpine skiing races to Crans-Montana and ushering in a new era, the two Alpine skiing legends from the Haut-Plateau were honoured for almost two decades of dedication and incredible commitment in organising the Alpine Skiing World Cup races in Crans-Montana, which have become a classic on the women's circuit.

Marius Robyr and Hugo Steinegger, president and vice-president of the Organising Committee for World Cup races in Crans-Montana, handed over the reins after the final races in February. This determined duo also launched and successfully completed the resort's application to host the World Championships in 2027.
