Overall in the team result we finished runners up in 2nd place behind Ecolint Geneva. (Only two skiers count for the team award per day and they had two firsts in the younger age categories.)
Brilliant behaviour from all Aiglon students and it was a pleasure to take the racers to this event. Thanks also to David Mansfield, Angus Rose and Annick Bonzon.
