An incredible celebration of skiing in Crans-Montana
The celebrations for the women's World Cup races in Crans-Montana this weekend were amazing, even though it was only possible to hold the downhill race. Tens of thousands of fans gathered at the foot of the Mont Lachaux piste on Saturday and Sunday, while on both Friday and Saturday evening, large crowds of fans were also present for the race number draws at the Ycoor ice rink.
The Organising Committee would like to thank the competitors for the show, the great audiences for the atmosphere, RTS for the wonderful images, and also the volunteers, the Association of communes ACCM, the CMA ski lifts, the canton of Valais, the army and the civil protection, as well as our faithful partners and sponsors who all contributed to make this a wonderful weekend of skiing.
