The “White Ring” in Lech/Zürs on 16 January 2016
represents a spectacular race of a different kind. Up to 1,000 participants
will assemble at an altitude of 2,337
on the Rüfikopf for the mass start
. 22 kilometres of pistes and a difference in altitude of 5,500 metres lie before them.
When Olympic and World Champion Patrick Ortlieb
declared the inaugural white ring race in 2006 nobody suspected how this race would evolve into an historic and cult event
To warm up, the White Party
- offering a fantastic entertainment programme - will be held on the eve of the race, while the White Night will be celebrated in various nightclubs in Lech and Zürs
on the night after the race.
It's also worth it to attempt 'The White Ring' on any other day during the winter season. This scenic circuit throught the entire ski resort will take you to the best slopes and most beautiful viewpoints of the Arlberg region. Completing the White Ring outside of the race also allows you to enjoy the magnificent scenery and to take breaks in the many mountain inns and restaurants along the track.
