Justin will be representing Verbier at eight races over the coming 2018–2019 season, including the Sölden (Austria), Val d’Isère (France), Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany) and Bansko (Bulgaria) giant slalom events and the Wengen (Switzerland), Bansko and Soldeu (Andorra) combined events, as well as at the World Championships in Åre (Sweden) in February 2019.
Sponsorship will be shared at a rate of 50% with the Valais architectural firm Comina SA.
After a lengthy period of physical training in the summer, Justin flew to New Zealand this August to practice his technique on the snow. At the age of 26, the Val de Bagnes native is understandably hoping for a podium finish after coming so close last season.
The Verbier and Val de Bagnes tourist offices wish Justin an excellent season and hope he makes it to the podium as quickly as possible!
