Training is expected to be canceled again on Friday due to weather conditions (wind, snowfall); Forecasts for the races on Saturday and Sunday are currently very variable. The men were not hit by the weather during the two countries’ downhill race on the “Gran Becca” last week; Apart from one training session, all races had to be cancelled.
“The good thing is that we have three training sessions scheduled. And because Friday may be a bit difficult, Thursday will be very important,” predicted Mirjam Puchner, last season’s best ÖSV downhill skier. “It’s always a little difficult to orient yourself on a steep path you’ve never been down before, even above the tree line.” At least last week’s men’s training provided some preliminary information. “It was helpful that we at least had some video.”
