Micken Traverse

On one of the most difficult race courses in the women's World Cup circuit, the Silvano Beltrametti World Cup course, a section was newly named after one of the active Swiss Ski athletes at the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Lenzerheide 2022.

The «Micken Traverse» is named after
Michelle Gisin. The «Micken Traverse» is now named after her nickname «Micken».

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.


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.
