Forward, stair! Soldiers are back in the snow. In Wengen BE, where the Lauberhorn races will be held this weekend, 450 men and women from Infantry Battalion 97 are helping out. Dressed in green, they prepare the slopes and help set up and dismantle the infrastructure. “Without an army, a Lauberhorn race would simply not be possible,” says OC President Urs Näpflin (63) in view.

The support of civilian or off-duty activities with military means, as the federal government calls these operations, causes criticism year after year. A video showing army personnel shoveling snow late at night drew scathing comments on Twitter last week: “The best snow removal army in the world.”
