The Norwegian Alpine ski team had a solid season. Aleksander Aamodt Kilde won the overall globe, while Henrik Kristoffersen secured the crystal globe in both slalom and giant slalom. 

“We focus on safeguarding and developing what we built to deliver top-level results with dominant national teams in both genders and all disciplines,” said Sports Manager Claus Johan Ryste. “The Covid-19 situation means that we must take responsibility and reduce both the staff and the number of skiers. Due to canceled events at the end of the season, there will be decreasing budgets and more training in Norway.”

“We have therefore set up strict national team selections at A and B level and are concerned about economies of scale for the teams, both women and men, in the upcoming period,” added Ryste. “The national teams are reduced in total by five people from 30 to 25, and it means that we can be competitive in the forthcoming season despite significant changes.”
