 Team classification prize in honour of visionary Sepp Bildstein


The team competition is dedicated to the founding father of Der Weiße Ring, Sepp Bildstein, whose dream was to install a lift at the Arlberg for skiing. It was his vision that made this winter sports activity possible and under his leadership 15 ropeways were installed in Lech Zürs. So in his honour, the Bildstein Trophy is now the prize for the team that completes the 22 km course the fastest.
