The first Lauberhorn week race since 2020 took place today, a Super G brought to Wengen for the World Cup schedule to catch up. Swiss racer Marco Odermatt won on the downhill course, shortened for this format, with a start below the Hundschopf. All three spectators were pleased. There were a few more people around really, but it was a low key day.
Tomorrow will be busier, even though spectator facilities for this year’s racing are limited. Friday is a race day every year and the prospect of an additional downhill, rather than the usual combined race, should bring a few people to the village.
The weather and the skiing continue to be spectacular. It was a cold morning, but warmed up to give perfect conditions. Long may they continue.
Another great day in the Bernese Oberland brought 10,968 vertical metres in 22 lift rides and 60 kilometres travelled.
