Unfortunately we have to cancel today's men's Giant Slalom as well. Due to heavy masses of snow and because of security reasons we are not able to host the race.
Unfortunately we had to cancel today´s men`s Downhill race!
Kira Weidle (SC Starnberg) made a wonderful 3rd place after Stephanie Venier from Austria (1st place) and Sofia Goggia from Italy (2nd place). A cheering audience celebrated Kira's victory at perfect weather conditions and an outstanding atmosphere.
