The resort Les Diablerets in the Waldensian Alps hosted a stage of the downhill ski European Cup on January 28th and 29th. The races took place on the brand new Willy Favre slope, newly accredited and inaugurated. “This international event went extremely well, despite the massive snow falls. Simon Rouèche, Bertrand Croisier and their team were able to react to those tricky conditions and demonstrate the resort now has the experience needed to host the Games in less than a year ! Feedbacks from athletes and coaches were very positive, which is an important factor. » assured Somine Righenzi, Head of Sports for Lausanne 2020.
