The well-known ski race called "The white ring" will take place for the 10th time on January 18th, 2015 in Lech. A competition that became legendary within the decade.
The start of the race is at the Rüfikopf cable car, which will take the competitors to 2337 metres above sea level. From there on, the ski-run to Zürs marks the first stage, which will lead to the "Schüttenbodenlift", the "Trittalpbahn" and the remarkable "Hexenboden Piste". From there on it goes up again via the Seekopf- and the Madloch cable car to 2444 metres above sea level. From there on the hardest stage awaits the competitors, the nearly 5 km long Madloch ski route!
We wish all the participants good luck and all the spectators a lot of fun!
