Season course

Before the season

Gertrud Gabl, whose acclimatization phase had ended after her stay in Australia, was back on the women's team of the ÖSV, which was housed in the Bundessportheim Kitzsteinhorn, since October 12, but she injured herself during slalom training and had to travel home. The ÖSV men stayed in Kaprun. Teams from Germany, Canada and Yugoslavia also trained on the Kitzsteinhorn.

The DSV trained on the French model with a much smaller national squad, which moved to Tignes after training courses on the Stilfser Joch, but according to a message in the "Münchner Merkur" there was a material uprising. The association had forced the runners to use local equipment, but they replied that it did not meet the requirements. In addition, sports manager Heinz Krecek countered that “the boys only wanted to ski foreign skis because they were hoping for more money”

World Cup decisions

For the first time, seven downhill runs appeared in the racing program for both women and men, which was decided by the FIS at a conference in Geneva in early September. According to President Dr. Marc Hodler was caught because the slalom specialists had clearly been preferred so far. In contrast, at the aforementioned conference, an Austrian application to delete all December races from the World Cup program was rejected. The fact that “only” 6 runs were held among women was due to the “Grindelwald cancellation” (see PLEASE under “Cancellations / Postponements”). There was also a reduction in the women's slalom, because ten were planned - and the end of the season was programmed for Pra-Loup on March 21 .

In the development of the season, Gustav Thöni did not seem to be in the top ten after the Berchtesgaden Slalom with 15 points ( Jean-Noël Augert led with 68 points, Max Rieger was 10th with 19). After the Adelboden races, Gustav Thöni was the World Cup leader for the first time, and he also benefited from the fact that the competitor at the time, Patrick Russel, could hardly score any more because of the deleted results. But already after the Kitzbühel slalom (here too there was no downhill run; a slalom not counting for the World Cup was held on January 23, which was also won by Jean-Noël Augert), in which Thöni had no points, Augert sat down again ( 102 points) ahead of Henri Duvillard (95) and Thöni (90) to the top of the World Cup ranking. There was another change in leadership after the men's slalom in Mont St. Anne: Now Russel was 125 to 115 ahead of Thöni.

After that, the South Tyrolean gained a lead thanks to his third place on February 19, 1971 in the downhill from Sugarloaf , but could theoretically have been overtaken by the penultimate race, the giant slalom on March 13, 1971 in Åre . With the victory in the giant slalom (February 27th) Thöni moved a lot closer to his first overall victory in the World Cup; only Duvillard could have endangered him, but if the Frenchman had needed at least one win and a second place in the two final races (while the South Tyrolean had no points at the same time), he should never have finished third. The stated intermediate result 155/135/125 was ultimately also the final result of the season, because no one got any point gains (also due to the "strike mode"). On March 13, the time had come for Thöni: He secured his first of three overall victories in the World Cup with 5th place (his main competitor Duvillard remained without points because of a disqualification; he had a "fan" with one in the first round of the giant slalom Goal lost 2.77 seconds on the best time achieved by Zwilling, then went all out, also achieved the best time - 0.38 seconds faster than Zwilling - but he had missed a goal). In the giant slalom discipline, Thöni and Patrick Russel won. In the slalom, which has already become insignificant for Duvillard, he finished 12th.

Already after the races in Megève, the last chances for last year's overall winner Karl Schranz , who was also slightly injured, were over. And the crisis surrounding him was also confirmed by the fact that his ski manufacturer Franz Kneissl demanded a change in the ÖSV's support team . Subsequently, Schranz (together with other colleagues) was given leave of absence for the Mürren slalom.

In the downhill classification after the two races in Megève, Bernard Orcel led with 60 points ahead of Russi (56) and Cordin (42), but the Frenchman was only able to achieve a maximum of 70 points, while besides Russi and Cordin also Tresch, Duvillard and Datwyler still had the theoretical chance at the maximum. Orcel missed the chance in the second Sugarloaf descent, at least ex aequo with Russi, to win the ranking with only 24. Defending champion Cordin only came third thanks to his second place in the second Sugarloaf descent. He was right at the start of the season Forest fell after a triple somersault, he also fell on the second Megève descent, but was already about 2 seconds behind in this race

After the Maribor weekend with victory and third place, Annemarie Pröll took the lead in the World Cup for the first time, but defending champion Michèle Jacot proved to be stronger in the other races and initially gained a clear lead. On February 12th, thanks to 4th place (11 points), Pröll overtook Jacot by one point in the giant slalom in Mont Sainte-Anne , which was only 10th. In the slalom, too, Pröll came fourth, while Jacot, as the leader, fell after the first run, and after that she never gave up the lead. The next preliminary decisions were made in Heavenly Valley : In the women's giant slalom (February 26th), Pröll could have finally won the World Cup with 3rd place, but she (and Jacot) were eliminated.

With her victory in the second Sugarloaf downhill run (February 19), Pröll won the discipline World Cup. Already in the third last race - with her victory in the first giant slalom in Abetone on March 10, 1971 - she gave me start no. 10 - Pröll was unassailable in the overall World Cup (Jacot and Mir had 177 and 133 points respectively). Pröll, who had previously become two-time national champion (slalom, giant slalom), won the final with her three victories (moreover clear in each case; of which in the second Abetone race with a 2.96 second lead; it was the largest lead ever in the World Cup History in such women's giant slalom, which were only driven in one run) to a late form. With 195 points, she beat Nancy Greene's previous record by four points.

The giant slalom world cup was only decided in Åre; Of the French women, only Jacot and Macchi, who were eligible for this rating, were at the start, who took full risk and dropped out due to falls.

While the men's team in Switzerland had a very positive balance, the women stayed ( Vreni Inäbit achieved 3 points with her 8th place in the downhill in Pra-Loup on January 28th, Rita Good was 7th in the last two giant slaloms and get 10 five points) far below expectations.

Premier victories


  • Walter Tresch in the descent on January 16, 1971 in St. Moritz .
  • Stefano Anzi , whose win in Sugarloaf on February 19, 1971 was to be his only one.
  • St. Moritz (January 19) was also good ground for Tyler Palmer , as he won his first race there with the slalom.
  • David Zwilling was able to win the final giant slalom in Åre on March 13, 1971 with two fastest times. Please refer to the source under the title “Giant Slalom: Finally Twins” in the article about the “World Cup decisions”.


  • Marilyn Cochran was the only one who managed a maiden win, u. between February 13, 1971 at Slalom in Mont Sainte-Anne.


  • Even before the first race, there were several serious falls during downhill training in Bardonecchia (Sestriere) on December 10, 1970 , which also affected slalom world champions Ingrid Lafforgue and Claudio de Tassis , who broke their shins, which meant they were canceled for the season.
  • Kurt Schnider (SUI, born April 14, 1946) tore his kidney in the giant slalom in Berchtesgaden (January 5) after hitting two goal posts with full force. He was operated on that evening in the Berchtesgaden hospital, during which the injured kidney had to be removed, which ended Schnider's racing career.
  • Annie Famose suffered a broken leg after she broke her leg in Schruns in 1969 and a year later at the Universiade in Finland. She suffered another bone tear - again the right fibula was affected. This time it happened in training for the national championships in La Plagne.

Cancellations / postponements

  • In January there were also various cancellations due to lack of snow: the women's downhill in Grindelwald was canceled (a second slalom not counting for the World Cup was held on January 12; winner Françoise Macchi ). The Lauberhorn races were held in St. Moritz, with the slalom scheduled so early on January 17th (9.30am / 11.30am) to bring the runners in time for the giant slalom that will take place in Adelboden on January 18th.
  • The Kitzbühel downhill run (as mentioned elsewhere) was replaced by a slalom that was not part of the World Cup, and the race itself was rescheduled in Megève on January 29th .
  • There were further cancellations for the Kandahar races in Mürren (February 4th to 7th) regarding the runs; For the time being, the organizer decided not to hold the men's downhill run, then the women's downhill run planned for February 5 was also canceled. In Crans-Montana there was a giant slalom on 5th / 6th for the purpose of the Kandahar combination for the men. February (not counting for the World Cup); Winner Duvillard and combi winner Patrick Russel (after both Thöni and Duvillard fell in the slalom). The Kandahar runs themselves were made up for after all, those of the men and women were ridden in Sugarloaf on February 18th.

Worth mentioning

  • IOC President Avery Brundage rode again attacks against a total of ten male alpine runners, who had worked as trainers in Mammoth Mountain in June and July, whereby they earned US $ 50 per day in addition to reimbursement of expenses and free stay and thus at the Olympic Games are not allowed to participate. FIS President Dr. Marc Hodler , referring to a regulation between the FIS and the IOC from 1949, Brundage even threatened to be disqualified against half a hundred Alpine. The French racing director Jean Béranger then stated that as soon as one of the three attacked French runners was excluded, the association would not attend the games. Béranger described Brundage's allegations as hypocrisy. Brundage stuck to his opinion and repeated his request when he arrived at the Asian Games in Bangkok .
  • Strictly speaking, the women's season opener took place in Bardonecchia, with Macchi winning 1.74 seconds ahead of Pröll, but the conditions (the route led through a forest, there were no fall areas and no finish line) were dangerous.
  • Malcolm Milne was able to prevent a bad fall on the descent in Val-d'Isère (December 20); he hadn't really caught the jump on the steep slope edge, had got into back position and only came up on one ski, had already sat on the ends of his ski - he was driving towards the trees next to the slope at 120 km / h, but he succeeded with the last of his strength to come up again and returned through the trees and the right gate post onto the slope. He only reached the finish with a stick, his time of 2: 12.90 was not enough for the top 20, but he had to be disqualified for a peat error anyway.
  • There were problems with the timekeeping on the ladies' downhill run in Val-d'Isère, the first loudspeaker announcement about the times took place after start no. 16 (Bernadette Rauter). At first it was said, Mir ahead of Jacot and Drexel, before Drexel was ranked ahead of Jacot - and Rauter's time was corrected three times and ultimately she was classified in 13th place.
  • The Berchtesgaden slalom on Jenner (January 6th) turned into a "KoSlalom". The last placed, Joze Gazvoda (YUG), was 19.58 seconds slower than the winner Augert in 139.13 seconds, but also the second, Heini Messner, lost 2.06 seconds.
  • In the five-fold victory of the French on January 8th in Oberstaufen , where Rouvier drove with No. 22 and Jocelyne Périllat with No. 38 - it could have been even more, but Macchi and Steurer were eliminated after the best and third-best intermediate times.
  • The women's slalom in Saint-Gervais-les-Bains (January 29th) caused nervous tension for World Cup leader Jacot, in which the timekeeping failed in the first run; she was therefore allowed (had to) repeat.
  • From February 6th to 14th, many runners took part in the pre-Olympic competitions in Sapporo and then flew over the North Pole route to Canada to continue the World Cup series. See ao:
  • At the women's giant slalom in Mont Sainte-Anne (February 12), the first start numbers were disadvantaged due to heavy snowfall, the second start group was favored, winner Isabelle Mir wore the number 17. The next day the slalom that followed, a French victory became apparent again after the first run Jacot led the intermediate ranking in 41.83 seconds ahead of Britt Lafforgue (42.04 seconds), the Cochran siblings were 42.75 seconds (Marilyn) and 42.87 seconds (Barbara) Ranks 5 and 7. Obviously Jacot was too nervous and fell, Lafforgue was able to prevent this, but lost a lot of time so that she did not make it into the top 15.
  • In Mont Sainte-Anne, the men had the longest giant slalom in World Cup history (February 12/13), with a total time of 4: 32.18 (this was the winning time of Bernhard Russi , who started with No. 16 , who was the first Run in 2: 11.32 before Bleiner + 0.20 and Bruggmann + 0.30 won). In the second run, Russi finished fourth behind Bruggmann, Rösti 2: 30.79 and Bleiner. Before that, it was Schranz's World Championship run on 9/10 in terms of the time record. February 1970 (in 4: 19.19 seconds).
  • The men's slalom in Mont Sainte-Anne started one hour late due to heavy snowstorms, and in heavy snowfall the competition was opened by the two Swiss runners Peter Frei and Edmund Bruggmann, who came in fifth and sixth.
  • On Saturday morning, February 20, on the day of the first round of the men's RTL from Sugarloaf, all the skis (70 pairs) of the Swiss team burned in a wax and equipment shed near the finish. After a defect in the gas-operated heating, a station employee tried to get it going again and triggered the explosive fire with a match. At the request of the Swiss coach Urs Weber and with the help of the loyal and comradely acting foreign team captains, the first run was postponed to Sunday, February 21. Every Swiss runner was free to use any ski, even if it was an embarrassing solution, since careful selection and thorough break-in was not possible. Gustav Thöni therefore lent Edmund Bruggmann his replacement skis for this giant slalom. Heini Hemmi used a spare ski that had been saved from the fire and finished twelfth. Thöni got his lead (0.22 seconds) in the first run, which he drove 0.45 seconds faster than Bruggmann.

At an FIS meeting at the same location, it was decided that, due to the participation restriction, the ski races at the Olympic Games in Sapporo would not be part of the World Cup (which made the 1968 Olympics and the 1970 World Championships the exception).

  • In Austria, the results that remained below expectations (the Kitzbühel races were the cause) even triggered the involvement of politics by the Minister of Education, Leopold Gratz , who was responsible for sport ; On February 9th the news came about the creation of an "Austria Racing Team" and head of racing, Prof. Franz Hoppichler, described an agreement between the manufacturers as a prerequisite for his stay. (The Austrian ski pool was then founded on September 27, 1971.)
  • In the second Sugarloaf descent (February 19) David Zwilling skied practically the entire distance (2.53 km) on one ski (he had lost the other one at the start), losing 30.3 seconds to winner Stefano Anzi. The hussar piece made headlines in many newspapers for the Salzburg man, but not even a classification in the list of results, it would have been 66th, because he had to be disqualified according to the regulations.
  • After returning to Europe, the respective ski associations held their national championships.
  • From the DSV came on the weekend 6./7. March the news that the previously nationally restricted ski pool was opened for (certain) foreign products.
  • Annemarie Pröll set a record with a time difference of 2.96 seconds on Françoise Macchi on March 11th with No. 15 at the giant slalom in Abetone on the 1.6 km long course flagged with 64 goals by ÖSV women's trainer Paul Kerber , which was no longer surpassed in terms of women's giant slalom with just one round.
  • On May 17, 1971, the ÖSV Main Committee under President Heinz Klee decided to extend the contract with Hoppichler to May 31, 1972.


There were resignations from Rudolf Sailer ( Toni Sailer's brother, who was not quite nine years younger ) and Georges Mauduit and Margret Hafen .

Race outside the World Cup

In addition to the (partially replacement) races already mentioned under "Cancellations / Postponements", there were other races:

  • The result of an international men's downhill race on November 28th in St. Moritz, in which the first 16 places went to Switzerland (victory: Michael Dätwyler ahead of Walter Tresch ), was sensational ; however, there was no ÖSV runner at the start.
  • The first slalom of the season took place on December 13th in Bardonecchia (women) and on December 14th in Sestriere (men). There were victories for Michele Jacot ahead of Annemarie Pröll and Wiltrud Drexel (Rosi Mittermaier finished 6th) and Patrick Russel ahead of Gustav Thöni and Max Rieger.

  • On December 21st, a women's giant slalom took place in Les Contamines, which Jacot won ahead of Barbara Cochran and Sandra Poulsen, but the ÖSV was only represented by one junior team.
  • The Salzach Valley Ski Week began on January 2nd in St. Johann im Pongau with the giant slalom abandoned after 43 of 127 registered runners in the first run (lack of snow; insufficiently groomed slope); it had led Josef Loidl to Reinhard Tritscher and Alfred Hagn . On January 3rd, only 17 of the 120 registered runners made it into the slalom in Schwarzach im Pongau . Here the Swede Sven Mikälson won ahead of Loidl, Zwilling, Manfred Grabler and Hagn. The competitions were concluded on January 5th and 6th with a slalom on Pass Thurn ( Passthurn ) (winner Hubert Berchtold ahead of Olle Rolen and Mikälsen) and a giant slalom in Krimml ( Josef Pechtl ahead of Helmuth Schmalzl and Karl Cordin ).
  • Henri Duvillard won the Hahnenkamm combined ranking ahead of Jean-Noël Augert and Bernard Orcel in Megéve.
  • On March 4, the Austrian ski championships began in Jochberg (Tyrol) with the women's downhill run ( Ingrid Gfölner won ahead of Dora Storm and Julia Spettel ; however, Annemarie Pröll , Monika Kaserer , Bernadette Rauter and Gertrud Gabl were missing ). On March 5th, both the men's downhill and the women's slalom were run. Karl Cordin won ahead of Kurt Engstler and Hubert Berchtold and Pröll ahead of Helene Graswander and Sigrid Eberle . On March 6th there were both giant slaloms, with David Zwilling winning ahead of Josef Pechtl and Reinhard Tritscher and Pröll ahead of Gfölner and Leibetseder. The men's slalom on March 7th brought a victory for Harald Rofner ahead of Styrian Norbert Wendner and Zwilling, with which Zwilling still won the combined title ahead of Pechtl and Tritscher. The combined victory in the women went to Gfölner ahead of Spettel and Graswander.
  • From March 5th, the Swiss held their 43rd championships in Thyon in the canton of Valais, with significant differences in quality between women (mediocrity) and men (high density at the top), especially in downhill skiing. At that time, there were large deficits in the women's sector, so that even the expression drove like beginners . The titles went to Vreni Inäbit in front of Marianne Hefti and Bernadette Zurbriggen (downhill), Rita Good in front of Marie-Theres Nadig and Inäbit (giant slalom), Zurbriggen in front of Elisabeth Ponti and Inäbit (slalom) and Zurbriggen in front of Inäbit and Marlys Beer (combination).

It was noteworthy that the men's descent was driven on a shortened route (2,200 m) due to the risk of avalanches.
  • At the French championships in La Plagne , the US runner Marilyn Cochran showed her late form and won slalom and giant slalom (plus fourth place in the downhill, which also brought the combined title). The actual national titles went to Jacqueline Rouvier (downhill winner and giant slalom third, because Karen Budge was second) and Danièle Debernard (slalom). - Patrick Russel won slalom and giant slalom, Henri Duvillard the downhill.
