3 stages in vars, 3 victories and the crystal globe for the Italians

The 2024 Speed Ski World Cup in Vars came to a close with the Italians Simone Origone and Valentina Greggio each winning the Crystal Globe. Despite weather disruptions that turned the calendar upside down, Vars hosted the stages originally scheduled in Spain and Andorra. The competition was marked by the cancellation of the last event due to strong winds. This season confirmed the excellence of the Italian champions, particularly on the Chabrières track.
