The Adelbodner experience a real nightmare in the night from Monday to Tuesday. It’s the hellishly mild January temperatures that rob the crew of race director Reto Däpp and slope boss Toni Haari of their sleep. In the early hours of the morning, 14 degrees were measured on the «Chuenisbärgli». At most of the other World Cup stations, the races planned for the weekend would have been annoyed at this moment.

But Reto Däpp learned his trade from the world’s best slope groomer. We are talking about Hans Pieren, who after his racing career (two World Cup podium places) interpreted the role of World Cup race director in his home town of Adelboden for 28 years. Now the 60-year-old acts as an advisor to his successor. “If Reto Däpp needs my advice, he’s not above calling me,” says “Housi” with a wink.
