The Alpine skiing ladies started in Garmisch this weekend. In very good but freezing winter conditons, -20° C, very exciting races were carried out. The athletes had to tape their faces or ski with a mask on. With 120 km/h the temperatures feel colder still and this can easily amount to frostbite.
The choice of materials wasn’t easy for the service staff. The cold, aggressive snow and the partly icy slope made it difficult to find the right balance.
