Mountain skiing, the point

Canceled the first of two runs at Beaver Creek. Heavy snowfall overnight on the slope made everything more complicated. Jury and organizers first decided to delay the whole day’s program to allow the staff to work on the slope and clean it up. The whole morning è spent in these operations, but there è put also the visibility è poor to make it impossible to hold the first downhill of the season.

And soì, at 8:30 p.m. Italian time, è came the final cancellation of the race, which will now have to be reintroduced, if possible, in the calendar. The schedule calls for another downhill on Saturday, with the start scheduled for 6:45 p.m. Italian.

Different discourse in the women’s field. Work on the race track has prevented the protagonists of the women’s double giant slalom World Cup on the unprecedented slope of Mont Tremblant, Canada, from carrying out the classic skiing on the eve of the race.
