Cortina d’Ampezzo (BL), 8th February 2021 – The women's alpine combined, scheduled for today, has been cancelled after heavy snowfall during the night. Tomorrow's program will be made official in the next hours, during the usual meeting of the team leaders.
Alberto Ghezze: The latest snowfalls have forced us to get back on track with the vehicles: the accumulations are huge, and the guys haven't slept for two days to prepare the slopes again. About 350 people and 14 snow groomers are working on the slope, but when the machines are working, the workers can't be there, and vice versa, everything has to be coordinated. In the last few days, up to 80 centimetres of snow have fallen at altitude: if it had stopped we would have been able to prepare the slope, but it continued and we had to cancel for safety reasons.
