Ski Cross European Cup
The kick of adrenaline over Betelberg
Four athletes will burst out of the starting gates and navigate jumps, waves and banked curves side by side, racing towards the finish line. Ski Cross is very fashionable right now and is proving popular amongst sporty individualists and families alike.
Lenk was the pioneer in the history of Ski Cross parks. The modern-day Audi Ski Cross Gold Park piste is perfectly groomed and packed with action, captivating the whole family. The park is home to an annual Ski Cross Kids Race, which takes place after Christmas. Entertainment and excitement are on offer at the Ski Cross parks. The park, which is rich in variety, open to the public and is always groomed, can be found at the Hasler ski lift.
The Audi Ski Cross Tour, organised by Swiss-Ski, began in 2009 and lies at the core of the national organisation in the discipline of ski cross. The tour includes European Cup, FIS and Open races, comprising ten days of racing over five weekends in different areas of Switzerland. The Ski Cross Kids Tour allows young athletes to get into Ski Cross and makes a welcome change for young alpine skiers from their daily training routine. The Kids Tour is often the starting point and platform for up-and-coming athletes.
The races from 21-25.1.20 were cancelled.
The best way to get to the Hasler piste is from the Betelberg valley station. Get off at the Leiterli summit station. The piste station will be on the left hand side of the slope. There is free parking available at the valley station. You can get to the valley station using public transport from the train station, using the ski bus, which runs at regular intervals. You can also get here with the Wallegg chairlift.
