Like with teams and athletes, the foundation for a successful winter are made in the summer. One part of the preparation for the FIS team is the official FIS inspection that takes place at almost every World Cup venue.
American Mikaela Shiffrin made a sensational comeback to the World Cup circuit by winning the 8th slalom of the season, after a two-month break due to a knee injury.
Head coaches of each team and the FIS Race Directors unanimously decided to unfortunately cancel the race because the snow conditions were too soft and the safety of the racers couldn't be guaranteed.
It snowed heavily on Friday night and the jury didn't have any other option but to cancel and postpone the race until Sunday
Switzerland's Fabienne Suter posted the fastest time on Friday, finishing in 1:36.49.
Switzerland's Lara Gut demonstrated she was already comfortable on the challenging “Mont Lachaux” course and posted the fastest time in 1:10.80.
