Ladies’ Super Giant Slalom in Garmisch-Partenkirchen

After two successful training days, the first day of the Ladies’ races started with a switch of Downhill and Super Giant Slalom due to bad weather conditions. 

Therefore Super Giant Slalom was planned on Saturday and Downhill is announced for Sunday. Instead of starting at 10:00 am the race began at 11:30 am by the time it has stopped snowing.

Nicole Schmidhofer (AUT) won first place, followed by second Sofia Goggia (ITA) +0.23 after returning from injury break and third Lara Gut-Behrami (SUI) +0.45 who is also happy to be back at the podium. During the race the sky cleared up and sun was shining until the end. Big thanks to all the hard-working volunteers who shovelled all day to prepare a suitable slope! We are looking forward to tomorrow’s Ladies’ Downhill.
