Audi FIS Ski World Cup Lenzerheide

Silvano Beltrametti Slope

It is considered one of the most difficult race slopes in the women's World Cup circuit - the Silvano Beltrametti slope. It is named after the former World Cup racer Silvano Beltrametti, who grew up and lives in the Lenzerheide holiday region. Between 2007 and 2016, he was OC President of three World Cup Finals and one Womens World Cup in Lenzerheide. World Cup races in all disciplines have been held there since 2005.

Schär turn

Named after radio legend Bernhard (Berni) Schär, who commented on his last race in Lenzerheide on 21 March 2021 after more than 30 years as a sports reporter for Swiss radio. As a token of appreciation for his work, the OC of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Final 2021 has decided to name this important right-hand bend after him. In this way, the name Bernhard Schär will remain in the ski circus even after his retirement.

Hemmi hilltop, Super-G Start

The athletes jump into the void over the crest. Therefore, the approach is very important to be able to keep the ideal line on the subsequent steep slope. The place is named after the local and former ski racer Heini Hemmi.

Heimberg edge, start giant slalom and steep slope

If the ideal line is not hit, it is difficult to regain it on the steep slope. With a gradient of up to 70%, this section is one of the steepest and most energy-sapping in the entire Women's Ski World Cup.

Älpli S

The terrain slopes down to the right. The ground is uneven and the play of light and shadow makes the task even more difficult. The sloping terrain in the traverse once again requires a lot of strength and courage from the athletes in order to be able to carry the speed.

Aisle

The extremely steep slalom start in the forest. At the first World Cup final, the slalom was still started on the Älpliweg. This is located after the cut where the slalom turns into the World Cup slope. In 2007, this spot was used for the first time in order to meet the FIS requirements and to make the slalom more attractive.
