Following last month's Winter Olympics in Sochi, the world's best skiers gathered in Switzerland for what is the last downhill before the World Cup finals.

Overnight snow and thick fog had already seen the start time put back several times on Saturday before race organisers opted to postpone until the following day.

Good weather is forecast for Sunday with Maria Hoefl-Riesch looking to maintain her lead in the overall World Cup standings.
