World Cup

The Austrian national team has stayed in our hotel since 1974. From Toni Sailer, Karl Schranz, Franz Klammer and Hermann Maier to the current stars of the ÖSV. It was a pleasure to celebrate numerous victories of the ski champions. Franz Klammer, Michael Walchhofer and Christian Ghedina were the most successful with 4 victories on the Saslong. The breathtaking “gobbe di cammello” (camel humps) are a highlight of this race.

In December 1980 a young Austrian caused a great sensation in Val Gardena. The twenty-five year old Uli Spiess became the first downhill skier to jump over the infamous Camel Humps on the Saslong. A mighty 60-70 meter leap ten meters above the ground at about 100 km/h catapulted the Tyrolean directly into world cup history.
