The long starting series for South America begins in Ushuaia, for the World Cup skiing blue. The first to start on the Fire Land where it is winter and you can ski on natural snow are Stefano Gross, Simon Maurberger, Manfred Moelgg, Tommaso Sala and Patrick Thaler who will be away from 11 August to 5 September.
“We will find better conditions than last year – says coach Stefano Costazza – although there has been rain in the last two days but who is already in Ushuaia tells that the slopes are all open and that all the facilities can be used Starting with the first four / five, working a bit more on the slalom, we are at the Cerro Castor so we can take advantage of the full range of the day, as a base, we will work on giant and slalom, maybe on two shifts. Snowy conditions day after day When the giants arrive (will leave August 22) we will privilege the giant, even if we do not forget the slalom, this first group will do all the time in Ushuaia, while the giants will divide between Ushuaia and Valle Nevado. , On the other hand, will depart on September 1 and will arrive directly to Valle Nevado “.
Ushuaia’s departure will be an opportunity for skiing so much and confronting athletes of other nationalities: “We will find the French and the Slovenes, and we will certainly look for some comparison, especially with the French, and that will be important to measure the growth of the state. Will be between 18 and 22 days of skiing, so we are sure we can do a good job. “
