According to the newspaper, up to 44 millimeters of precipitation is expected between Thursday and Friday. Therefore, the Norwegian national team chooses to travel to Zurich already on Wednesday and thus ends the camp two days earlier than planned.
“According to the weather forecast, there will be half a meter of snow in a short time,” says Stig Rune Kveen to Adresseavisen, NTB states.
— We will drive over several mountain passes and they will soon be closed. We have a lot of passengers, a lot of luggage and trailers. That’s why we’re not taking any chances.
The Swedish national team duo Frida Karlsson and Moa Ilar are also, since a week ago, in Livigno to train at high altitude. It is unclear whether they will take the same decision as Norway.
Norwegian men’s star Johannes Høsflot Klæbo, who is also there, will, unlike the women’s team, stay in Italy, NTB says.
