Unfortunately the weather on this summer was not really suitable for any teams preparing in the European glaciers. First the continuous snowfalls and storms made the training impossible and then the weather suddenly became too warm which brought more difficult situations for both the competitors and the coaches.
The racers of the NIVELCO Ski Team expected to skiing in the previously tested South American training camp, but there was not enough snow in the Southern Hemisphere because of the unusually warm weather. A short discussion with our good old South African friends and an even shorter discussion with the team resulted in a totally new target place. We headed to another exotic country and finally spent three weeks in Africa.
