The route

Der Weiße Ring - Das Rennen

The legendary ski race circuit at the Arlberg

You stand in a throng at the starting line, the silence is deafening, and it’s 22 kilometres to the finish line. The starting signal rings through the air and you're right in the thick of the White Ring.


Der Weiße Ring - Das Rennen in Lech Zürs has international cult status. Every year, 1000 ambitious winter sports athletes compete in this thrilling race, every moment of which is closely followed by spectators along the course and at the finish line. Meanwhile, locals and guests listen to the race call as skiers of different age groups compete for a spot on the podium.


22-km race - The race course route 


The circuit comprises 5 downhill runs, 5 lifts, an exciting ascent and a demanding ski route. 


On the Rüfikopf, two people start at a time and at 10-second intervals. The route takes participants via the Schüttboden lift, Trittalpbahn and Madloch around the Omeshorn to Zug. From there, 10-seater gondolas take the racers up to the Balmengrat, from where the final section leads down to Lech. The 1000 participants are celebrated to thunderous applause at the finish line.
