On 6 January 2018, the time had come again – the event on the Chuenisbärgli slope in Adelboden was just around the corner. Once again, we prepared for the race on the Reiteralm in Austria, where there were great training conditions. As a result of the road to Adelboden collapsing, the Swiss Ski Team took a helicopter from Bern airport so that we could prepare for the race in the best possible way.
The atmosphere on the day of the race was brilliant; the weather could not have been better and my recently established fan club was out in full force! I gave the race my all and had a good, solid run. Unfortunately, I missed out on the second round again... I came in thirty-second place and just nine hundredths of a second away from the top 30.
