A major facelift for the Nationale piste in Crans-Montana

The top section of the Nationale downhill piste is currently undergoing work. Imposing machines have started work in the Bellalui sector, to be precise, this is exactly where the famous men's downhill jump was located in the '87 World Championships. This remodelling is necessary in order to meet the requirements of the FIS International Ski Federation on the one hand, and also in order to be able to host a Men's World Cup downhill in the future. And above all, this work is being carried out with a view to offering one of the most attractive pistes for the 2027 World Championships, for which our destination is a candidate, as explained in this video by the executive director of the bid, Marius Robyr.
