He selected 15 of the most beautiful peaks of the Alps that he’ll re-ski to illustrate the evolution of steep skiing over a decade.
We’re talking about real extreme skiing here – where the slightest mistake means you’ll end up as mincemeat at the bottom of the face. Many of those have never been skied after the first descent – so what he’s planning ain’t an easy feat…” – Red Bull
The new year starts literally with huge news: Several Austrian ski resorts are planning a gigantic winter sports area!
From 2020, to be built between the Bregenz Forest, Ischgl and the Swiss Samnaun one of the largest ski areas in Europe. More than 400 kilometres of slopes will be available to the winter sports fans in Vorarlberg and Tyrol without interruption. Whether this project is actually implemented, this remains to be seen.
for those not just satisfied with daytime action can also head to the ski slopes at night in Kühtai. The HochAlter 4-seater chairlift will take you directly to the brightly-lit descent every Wednesday and Saturday from 7.30pm to 10.00pm. The Berghaus “Zum Kaiser Maximilian” is open and the slopes illuminated until 11.30pm.
The training concept is based on the well-respected Austrian curriculum used in the context of the national training programme for alpine coaches and certified ski instructors. Athletes of the Austrian National Ski Team are taught in accordance with this concept in order to perfect their skills. These athletes have been demonstrating their strengths in the World Cup for decades and their success confirms the functionality of the concept.
In our Children Team athletes between 6 and 10 years of age are in a training team.
In our Children Team athletes between 11 and 14 years of age are in a training team.
In our FIS Team athletes above the age of 15 are in a training team.
In our Masters Team athletes above the age of 30 are in a training team.
Situated at an altitude of 2020 m Kühtai is Austria’s highest winter sport village and, because of this, has best snow conditions from beginning of December till spring.
The slopes are next to the hotels, so no walking or driving is neccessary.
Kühtai is a special adventure for kids. Lots of establishments, for example the skischool, the ski kindergarden or the “wunderteppich” (special lift for kids) are exactly shaped to the requirements of young families.
Besides 30 km of ski and snowboard slopes, Kühtal excels in its great offer of ski tours.
Every Wednesday and Saturday from 19.30 to 22.30 night skiing possible.
I will be there until 16 January 2016 working with Austria Racing Camps on the special slope for Alpine ski racing training for Children, Youth, FIS and Masters.
