Italy's ski ladies want to continue like this at home

The Ski World Cup is slowly but surely entering the home straight. Read what's on the agenda this week here.

Even without the injured Sofia Goggia, the Azzurre caused a huge sensation in Crans Montana last weekend. Marta Bassino and Federica Brignone each made it onto the podium twice, with Bassino even claiming her first downhill victory. This was like a relief for the whole team, after all, the giant slalom specialist had had a difficult winter so far.

But it wasn't just Brignone and Bassino who showed Montana in Crans, but also Laura Pirovano and Teresa Runggaldier. The Trentino native came fourth and fifth and is long overdue for her first World Cup podium. Runggaldier is also having the best season of her life. With her courageous driving style, the Val Gardena native impressed many people in Crans Montana and achieved by far her best career result with 11th place.

At the weekend the ski ladies continue with two Super-Gs at the San Pellegrino Pass (Fassa Valley). In addition to those mentioned, Roberta Melesi and the South Tyroleans Nadia and Nicol Delago, Vicky Bernardi and Sara Thaler are also taking part in the home races.

Gentlemen in California

The ski men, on the other hand, are heading overseas. In the US Palisades Tahoe, Alex Vinatzer, Luca De Aliprandini, Giovanni Borsotti, Hannes Zingerle, Filippo Della Vite, Tobias Kastlunger, Stefano Gross, Tommaso Sala, Giuliano Razzoli and Corrado Barbera are part of the technical double. So 3 South Tyroleans will be making the trip to California.
