Glockner - The Race
Glockner – The Race is an event for winter sports enthusiasts in Europe. The legendary ski race takes a team, consisting of 2 athletes, partially on open territory from the mountain down into the valley.
Seven before there were prepared pistes and ski lifts in the Grossglockner/Heiligenblut ski resort, daring participants hurtled from the peak of Grossglockner down to the Pasterze glacier: the “Glockner Race” was held for the first time in 1933.
The Grossglockner/Heiligenblut ski resort was not made accessible to skiing enthusiasts until the year 1958 and the first lifts were installed.
The legendary ski race on the highest mountain in Austria established itself over the years and gained renown both nationally and internationally. The last official “Grossglockner Race” took place in 1967 and left a gap in the landscape of Austrian skiing events for ambitious skiers.
On the 29th of February the event is in our area.
