Slide the Mezzalama Trophy

The uncertain weather conditions for Saturday 30 April prompted the organization of the Trofeo Mezzalama to put back a day before the competition, which is then held on Sunday 1º May.

There are also innovations in the formation of the 4000 club team: Luke Calzone last moment he had to leave for health problems and his place was taken by Marco Bongiovanni, Instructor Ski-touring at the SUCAI school.

A whole team my best wishes for a complete success!
