The Europa Cup returns to Saanen

  18.12.2018 Local News

Both national and international ski races have a long tradition in Saanen. In recent years, mostly international FIS races and national junior championships have been held here. This year, as in previous years, the Europa Cup will once again come to our region.
A committee of representatives from local ski clubs has been formed in recent months, with Philippe Chevalier, a long-standing national Alpine women’s team coach, acting as the president. This committee is responsible organising the Europa Cup races. The race director will be World Cup winner and world champion Mike von Grünigen, bringing many years of experience in ski racing to the two races that will take place in Saanen.

The committee has set itself the goal of providing a home to top international skiing in the region both now and in years to come. On the Skifuture race track in Saanen, skiers of all levels will be able to show off their skills, including regional junior athletes, as well as established World Cup racers.
