Practice makes perfect World Champions: Many ski sports nations take advantage of optimal training conditions in Oberstdorf

No doubt about it: Even outside the large World Cup events, the Erdinger Arena in Oberstdorf is worth a visit for many ski sports nations.

Besides the German teams, also the aces from Norway, Switzerland, Austria, Slovenia, France and Turkey took advantage of the optimal training and surrounding conditions for their individual preparation for the season during the past months. But also smaller ski sports nations such as for example Armenia, Kazakhstan, Bosnia-Herzegovina or Iceland receive the best possible and cooperative support by the organisers in Oberstdorf. This means, in Oberstdorf all 200 contractually committed free training days of the WSC candidature are used!

“More than ten years ago, we introduced a new inrun track cooling system on the occasion of the Vierschanzentournee as one of the world’s first World Cup venues, and with this development contributed to a new trend in ski jumping. In the meantime, there are sophisticated combined inrun track systems. This means, even in autumn we are able to provide the national teams with appropriate training conditions on ice, such as the athletes will come across in the World Cup winter,” says Stefan Huber, Managing Director of Skisport- und Veranstaltungs GmbH and Secretary General of the Vierschanzentournee from Oberstdorf.
