Training camp for the Swiss ladies speed team Crans-Montana

Looking forward to the Classic Ladies world Cup in February on the Mont Lachaux slope

In view of the FIS Ladies Ski World Cup 13th and 14th February in Crans-Montana, Swiss-Ski is organising, from Wednesday to Friday, this week, a training camp on the Mont Lachaux slope for specialists of the speed disciplines.  Markus Murmann, head of races, and his team, will put everything in place in order to provide a very well prepared slope, despite the slight rise in temperature. 

Fabienne Suter, Corinne Suter, Joana Hählen, Priska Nufer, and Mirena Küng will be present in Crans-Montana, under the leadership of the speed disciplines trainer, Roland Platzer, and his team.  These athletes have all already obtained positive results this season.  By contrast, Lara Gut, who will be participating in the World Cup Giant Slalom 30th January in Maribor, is be absent.

The athletes will take advantage of these training sessions to carefully study the key passages of the Mont Lachaux slope, one of the most demanding of the most beautiful ladies circuits.  Particularly joyful for ski fans: as of this season, a Ladies Classic race will take place every year in Crans-Montana.  Swiss-Ski, having designated the resort on the Haut-Plateau as the only Swiss candidate, after St Moritz 2017, with a direct link to the canton of the Valais, has a mid-term focus on the organisation of the Alpine skiing World Championships.
