Maze after her remarkably successful season. Magoni, an
ultra-marathon competitor — when he has the time — has
already dialed up a touch of controversy by taking the Italian
technical women to an indoor facility (Druskininkai’s Snow
Area) in Lithuania for the final pre-season camp.
The Swiss rehauled with Walter Hlebayna replacing head
women’s coach Osi Ingle and bringing in Steve Locher, Jorg
Red and Walter Hubmann to assist.
The French were faced with the retirement of Jean-Philippe
Vuilliet, the head of the program. Benjamin Melquiond replaced him. Sweden’s new alpine director is Ville Bylin, who
follows Lasse Kjaellberg to the post. Rudi Soulard replaces
Marko Pfeifer, who goes home to Austria and takes on the
men’s slalom group, replacing Michael Pricher who will now
focus entirely on Marcel Hirscher.
Also in Austria, Herbert Mandl leaves his post as head of
the women’s program, replaced by Jurgen Kriechbaum.
Our neighbors to the north, Canada, also swept out the
cobwebs. Martin Rufener was appointed alpine director and
will also head the men’s team. Massimo Carca, formerly
with Italy, will coach the Canadian technical men’s group,
joined by Paula DeFlorian.
Monaco’s one-woman team, Alexandra Coletti will be
coached by David Fell with Luigi Parravicini.
