Ski Moun­taineer­ing

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

The 2004 World Cham­pi­onship of Ski Moun­taineer­ing was the sec­ond World Cham­pi­onship of Ski Moun­taineer­ing sanc­tioned by the In­ter­na­tional Coun­cil for Ski Moun­taineer­ing Com­pe­ti­tions (ISMC), held in the Span­ish Aran Val­ley from March 1 to March 6, 2004. In a vari­a­tion of the 2002 World Cham­pi­onship, a re­lay race and a ver­ti­cal race com­pe­ti­tion were added. The com­pe­ti­tion was dom­i­nated by Switzer­land, Italy and France, while Amer­ica and the United King­dom found them­selves in 16th and 17th place re­spec­tively and Aus­tralia was nowhere to be found on the list of 29 coun­tries – per­haps some­thing to do with the mod­est amount of snow we see each year com­pared to the Euro­pean coun­tries.
