Local News

All eyes will be on the Oreiller Killy slopes today for the first ladies downhill training of the Critérium de la Première Neige. Two training sessions are planned, the first today, the second tomorrow. It is imperative that at least one take place to kick off Saturday's race. The first departure is at 12:15 p.m., with 5 French women at the start.

We will carefully follow the results of the Tignarde Laura Gauche, alongside Romane Miradoli, Anouck Errard, Camille Cerutti and Karen Smadja Clément.

The work on the piste to improve the snow cover after the rain and following snow was colossal yesterday. Hopefully this is enough for the organizers and FIS experts to give the Go for Thursday.

Another important competition this weekend, the Info cup. 24 French journalists are expected in Val d'Isere between Friday afternoon and Sunday evening to celebrate their traditional ski weekend. They are back for the 8th consecutive year, attracted by the quality of our resort, as well as the numerous partnerships forged with various local businesses, hotels and restaurants. They will compete Saturday at noon in a slalom at the Gérard Bonnev stadium.
