Marco Odermatt docks at the landing stage in Lucerne, drenched to the skin, after a TV shoot at Lake Lucerne. There are dark storm clouds in the sky and it’s raining in droves. The first half of the summer has certainly been a rainy one and the Nidwalden athlete has wasted no time getting back on his skis at the glacier in Saas-Fee. In this summer interview, last season’s Alpine Ski World Cup silver medallist comments on how prepared he is feeling, his new main sponsor, the appeal of training in the snow in the middle of summer and the Olympic Games.
