As a result of the energy cris Crans Montana has cancelled their popular night slalom.
The Men's Night Slalom, organised by the Crans-Montana World Cup Organising Committee in close collaboration with the CMA lift company, was to add a new chapter to its short history. For the 2022/23 season, this invitation-only technical event, which was to see some of the world's top names on the start line, was scheduled for Wednesday 11 January, an ideal date as it fell between the World Cup races in Adelboden and Wengen.
'Due to restrictions on electric energy use at all levels, the Men's Night Slalom by invitation, scheduled for Wednesday January 11, 2023 will not be taking place.
'This decision was definitely a difficult one to take, but it is a perfect illustration of the Organising Committee’s sensitivity to environmental problems.
'Let's hope that the situation will return to normal as soon as possible, and that everyone - champions, organisers and spectators – will be able to get together again in January 2024, in the finish area for this magnificent Men's Night Slalom, to applaud the slalom aces that excite us each and every year.'
