Above Kitzbühel, the slopes of the Hahnenkamm host the annual most thrilling downhill race. The legendary highlight of the Ski World Cup season was held the first time in 1931 and is since then known as the most dangerous and most prestigious challenge in the Ski World Cup.

Hauser Kaibling is the local skiarea of Haus im Ennstal, nestled in the beautiful Schladming-Dachstein region.

Snow conditions are excellent in the busiest week of the season

Over the next few days the weather in the Alps will be quite mixed with some snow here and there but generally not in a huge quantity. It will stay quite cold though, which means that any snow will fall well into the lower valleys. The northwest and southeast of the Alps will get the most precipitation this week. Towards the middle of the week, Wednesday evening to be more specific- it will become warmer in the Alps and Pyrenees before cooling down again from Sunday.
