Bormio makes a stunning comeback in the Ski World Cup

For three long years the Bormio (ITA) ski resort missed out on the legendary downhill world cup race on the Stelvio slope. This year the classic made a stunning comeback. Despite difficult conditions, the team of organizers had everything just right for the skiers. The South Tyrolean Domenik Paris felt particularly at home on the TechnoAlpin snow, beating the Norwegians Aksel Lund Svindal and Kjetil Jansrud in his home race by a razor-thin margin. In the run up to the event, Paris had shown himself to be a fan of the Stelvio slope with some underrated form. Following a perfect run, his delight was hard to contain.

In order to be ready for the prestigious race, the team on the slopes did a lot of preparatory work over summer 2017 with Technical Director Pasquale Canclini. 18 fan guns were added to the snowmaking system ready for the comeback on the international skiing stage. The exceptional snow output of the TF10 impressed the organizers in the run up to the event and proved itself again during race preparations in the fall. The pump output of the ski resort was also improved, ensuring the new snow guns had an optimal water supply. 130,000 m³ of snow was created on the Stelvio slope in a very short time. Other slopes in the resort were also successfully snowed at the same time. 

The TechnoAlpin team congratulates the team in Bormio and Dominik Paris for a successful end to 2017.
