Race control assistant for Super-G and Parallel Slalom

As the right hand of the race manager, you are right in the middle of action instead of merely standing on the sidelines in the women’s World Cup classic in St. Moritz. The world’s best female skiers line up with you and listen to your command. You set the pace in the important seconds before the start. 

In this dynamic competition atmosphere, you’ll need to keep a cool head and focus on your own tasks, which include:

  • Supporting the video journalist (eg. asking interview questions)
  • Coordination of content between stadium TV and social media
  • Assistance with editorial planning
