It’s almost paradoxical. Switzerland is as diversified in giant slalom as it has been for more than 20 years. And yet exactly this giant slalom two weeks before the World Cup in France (from February 6th) is the worry discipline of the women’s team. How is that possible?

Let’s go back a month. In the second giant slalom at Semmering (Austria), seven Swiss women classified themselves in the points: Lara Gut-Behrami (2nd), Wendy Holdener (15th), Andrea Ellenberger (16th), Simone Wild (23rd), Michelle Gisin ( 26th), Camille Rast (27th) and Corinne Suter (28th). «The more we are, the higher the quality in training. Everyone wants to be the fastest, the level rises automatically,” says Ellenberger. At the same time, one realizes that only Gut-Behrami is at the forefront. The Ticino was clearly the best Swiss in all six giant slaloms, and she even won in Killington (USA). But there was always a big gap behind her, only Wendy Holdener made it into the top 10 as tenth from Sestriere (It).
