The ladies’ World Championships slalom at Åre 2019 will be carried out on Saturday, 16 February. The hill in Åre has traditionally been good to the Swedish ladies team, not least to Frida Hansdotter, who was in Åre to test the course and to benefit from some training on the ”home slope” before the Championships that open on Monday, 4 February.

 Åre 2019 received the formal go-ahead following the official FIS snow control on Monday, 21 January. After the inspection of snow quality and snow depth measurements, the officials confirmed that all was ”technically clear,” with only final adjustments remaining before the first medal event, the ladies’ super-G, on 5 February.

The Ski Team Sweden Alpine, as the rest of the World Cup circuit, race non-stop during the season. That’s why it is important to find some time for good training every so often, and that’s why the reigning slalom Olympic champion Frida Hansdotter who is one of the top medal favorites in the ladies’ slalom at Åre 2019, took some time to train on the World Championships hill in Åre this week.

She was more than happy with her two training days on the hill in Åre, even though the sight was limited during the first day of training due to the extremely cold temperatures.

– The slope conditions were already beyond expectations – amazing hard and fine snow, said Hansdotter, who arranged to train in Åre on her own. 

– Both Åre 2019 and SkiStar were very helpful and made sure that I had two great training days here in Åre. 

Before the Championships, Hansdotter will still compete in the remaining World Cup events in Maribor before the final preparations for the World Championships that begin on 4 February. The two January training days in Åre had been planned already last Fall.

– This was just perfect for me. First a couple of days at home and then a couple of days here to get to know the hill and get some good training in. Now it’s time to go back home and pack for Maribor, concluded Frida Hansdotter.
