Finally! The first stop of the Freeride World Tour this season. Due to dangerous snow conditions the stop in Revelstoke is postponed to mid March. Therefor the stop in Courmayeur will be the first battle game this season.
Probably Tuesday or Wednesday
The face check will be held on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th of January. The first competition day is planned for Saturday, but that will be a challenge with the expected amounts of fresh powder. The first snow is expected on Thursday afternoon and it will snow until Friday. A new storm will be moving in on Saturday and conditions will be tricky until at least Monday. Looking at the weather models I expect the first action not earlier than Tuesday or Wednesday.
