After the European glacier and the ski hall in Amneville, the way of the French tech team now lead to the Southern hemisphere. At the moment, the team is training in the Cerro Castor in the Tierra del Fuego.

The colleagues of the speed team also headed to the South, to La Parva in Chile where 1.5 metres of new snow made the training camp possible as planned. The team only had the chance to train 2 days of Super G so now the team relishes the opportunity to find their automatisms at hight speed. Allrounders Alexis Pinturault and Thomas Mermillod-Blondin are already in Argentine with the tech team and will join the speed team at the end of the week.
