Because of strong Due to gusts of wind, the second women’s World Cup downhill run on the Matterhorn was also canceled. After several delays, the organizers and the World Ski Federation FIS had to cancel the Zermatt-Cervinia race.

The same weather fate had befallen the female racing drivers on Saturday and their male colleagues a week earlier.
