The North - The race on 1.4.2023

One of the longest downhill runs in the Eastern Alps - a real challenge for the winter sports enthusiast.

This year, Bad Hofgastein will once again host the spectacular race on the north downhill run of the Schlossalm. The route from the Hohe Scharte to the valley station of the Schlossalm lift is considered one of the longest downhill runs in the Eastern Alps. 1440 meters of altitude have to be covered in the "wild race" in Super-G style. It takes enormous strength and endurance in the thighs to be cheered by the fans at the finish line at Weitmoserin after about 6 minutes.

The requirements to take part in the race are simple: anyone over the age of 18 who has two skis or a snowboard and whose thighs are happy to take a big beating is welcome! All participants can expect a top event with a great social program, a discounted mountain railroad ticket, and discounted admission to the Alpentherme in Bad Hofgastein.

Also the spurring on of our athletes should not go unrewarded. In the fan zones at the Aeroplanstadl and at the fire bar of Hotel Das Goldberg warm drinks and good mood are waiting for you!
