Ladies Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup moves to Altenmarkt-Zauchensee for the World Cup Downhill and the Super Combination on the 17th and the 18th of January 2009.
Since 1980, Zauchensee has been home to many memorable World Cup races. The Worldcup Slope "Kälberloch" in Zauchensee is a technical very ambitious Race Track.
Zauchensee is the highest ski region in the Salzburger Sportwelt (skiing from 1.000 up to 2.200 m height). With its 9 ski resorts (Flachau, St.Johann/Alpendorf, Wagrain, Zauchensee-Flachauwinkl, Flachauwinkl/Kleinarl, Radstadt/Altenmarkt, Eben, Filzmoos, Goldegg), 99 lifts and 350 kilometres of pistes (140 blue, 170 red, 40 black), the Salzburger Sportwelt surpasses all your skiing expectations. Salzburger Sportwelt is the home of Hermann Maier, Andreas Schifferer, the successful snowboarding Riegler sisters and the ski legend Annemarie Moser-Pröll.
Zauchensee Ski Paradise is a member of the Ski Amadé, Austria’s biggest ski alliance: one ski ticket for 5 ski regions (Salzburger Sportwelt, Schladming-Dachstein, Gastein, Grossarltal and Hochkönig) with 860 km of slopes (280 blue, 483 red, 97 black) and 270 lifts. 80 percent of slopes (equal to about 690 kilometres) are serviceable by snowmaking equipment. The area is named in honour of the city of Salzburg´s most famous son, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
