A men’s World Cup slalom race was successfully held at Garmisch-Partenkirchen earlier this month, though the competition was held on a rather narrow strip of artificial snow. Norway’s Henrik Kristoffersen took first place in that race, with Austria’s Manuel Feller in second and France’s Clement Noel taking third.
