Dear speed ski friends,
After ten years of racing on our mystique track of the Mt-Fort, the
elements have forced us to officially announce that there will not be an
XSpeedSki race in 2014.
The massive melting of the glacier the last few years has drastically
modified the profile of the slope. The mountain as well as some isolated
rocks have become more and more exposed, and have finally gotten to a
point that it’s impossible to be covered in snow. The actual situation
requires a huge investment of work that will be much too expensive and
with no guarantee afterward to satisfy the level of safety to hold a
race under good conditions.
The organizing committee warmly thanks Téléverbier, Verbier Sport Plus,
the Destination Verbier-St. Bernard, the Commune de Bagnes and the
Société de Développement de Verbier as well as all the partners who
helped us during this great adventure. We would also like to especially
thank all the volunteers without whom the races would have never
happened, and of course you, the athletes who offered us an incredible
We wish you all a great World Cup season.
Alexandre Barblan and Philippe May
