There are concerns about the World Cups in Switzerland that are scheduled for next and next weekend. Not because of corona, but because of the high temperatures of recent days. One of the World Cup slopes is so bad at the moment, that you can not even ski on it. Nevertheless, the organizations and the FIS are confident that the slopes will be ready in time for the races. It will be a challenge, because January 8 is the First World Cup in Switzerland scheduled.

2022 starts with World Cups in Switzerland

Traditionally, the New Year starts with the World Cups in Switzerland. January 8th and 9th the giant slalom and slalom are planned at the Chuenisb Jerusrgli in Adelboden and from January 13th to January 16th the Lauberhorn races will take place in Wengen. So two spectacular competition weekends! But it is not 100% certain yet … because the hot and wet weather of recent days has thrown a big spanner in the works. On the competition track in Adelboden you can not even ski at the moment. So it will be a bit exciting whether they have these ready in time for the Games next weekend. The snow also suffered on the Lauberhorn in Wengen. Nevertheless, pistemanager Toni Hari from Adelboden is confident. “I hope that nature still helps us a little and otherwise we just have to use other tools,” said Hari.

All resources are deployed

Fortunately, the competition organizations now have the necessary experience in preparing slopes for the World Cup. Even in such circumstances. In order to have the descent in good condition in time for the race, water and salt are used. In this case, they should therefore use more water and salt, Hari indicates. The FIS is also confident that it will succeed, because on december 30 they gave the green light for the matches in Adelboden.

Next two weekends there are World Cups for the men planned in Switzerland. In Adelboden the technical parts take place and in Wengen the speed competitions take place. In addition, Wengen gets an extra match, they take over the Super G canceled due to the warm weather from Bormio. Spectators are welcome at both matches and it promises to be a spectacle.
