Rumour has it that Aletsch Arena plans to become a new World Cup host for alpine snowboarding events.

As rz-online.ch recently reported, the region is currently checking the possibilities to becoming a World Cup host in the 2015-16 winter.

According to the webpage Albert Brass of the local community said: “We are currently in the planning phase. But as we have the reigning Olympic Champion residing in our region, we should capitalise on this.”

Local hero Patrizia Kummer, the Swiss PSL Olympic Champion and dominating raceboarder of last winter, lives in Mühlebach.
