The slopes are perfectly prepared, racers are motivated, fans are already arriving, and everyone involved is raring to go. The weather gods, however, have put a spanner in the works and thwarted our plans. The only way to stage all three races, is to change the entire weekend programme.
Forecast for the weekend
Dry snow is forecast to fall from Thursday night to Friday morning. The cloud line should rise, however, during the course of the afternoon, resulting in improved visibility and the most realistic opportunity to stage the Downhill race on Friday.
Temperatures are expected to increase above zero degrees on Saturday. This combined with low cloud, means the prospect of staging a successful Downhill race is illusory. These conditions are best suited for the Slalom.
No precipitation is expected on Sunday, the cloud level will rise, and the slopes prepared in such a way that a Super-G race is possible.
Friday, 25th January – Hahnenkamm Downhill, 11:30 hrs
Saturday, 26th January – Hahnenkamm Slalom, 09:30 hrs | 12:30 hrs
Sunday, 27th January – Hahnenkamm Super G, 13:30 hrs
Information for already purchased tickets
Tickets are valid for the event day stated on the respective ticket. If tickets were acquired for Saturday (was: Downhill), they will still only be valid for Saturday (now: Slalom). In other words, tickets are date-related, not race-related.
