Catch me if you can - the night of the long turns in St. Anton am Arlberg

  • A new “giant slalom race for all” has been created with the “Catch me if you can” event, in which
    222 participants compete against each other and the clock. As in the case of “The White Thrill”,
    numbers are limited. The athletes commence their journey upwards in mystical ambience with the
    Galzigbahn cable car at 17 hrs, where competitors start at one-minute intervals in teams of two directly from the mountain terminal of the Valluga cable car. After a short ascent on skis, the athletes duel it out over a 5km long giant slalom course in the darkness. Headlamps are used, so racers don’t lose their orientation entirely. The giant-slalom courses are parallel in parts
    and even merge at several sections. There are no restrictions, however, to where competitors can overtake. Whoever manages to beat not only their direct opponent but also the best overall time, will be celebrated as the winner of this event’s premiere.  The fastest and slowest teams
    will also be fêted in special style. Spectators are expected to flock to the finish line, where they will wait to welcome the finishers with rapturous applause. A top DJ is also on hand to provide some tunes after this incredible sporting challenge, followed by an after-party and prize-giving ceremony at
