After Zagreb's Slalom Event the Ladie's Alpine Ski World Cup moves to Zauchensee (Austria). Since 1980, Zauchensee has been home to many memorable World Cup races. In January 8 & 9, Zauchensee will host the Super-G and Downhill at the World Cup slope "Kälberloch" in Zauchensee. The Worldcup Slope of Zauchensee is a technical very ambitious Race Track, which ist very interesting for the new carving technic, because of the numerous difficult turns. For the worldcup finals in 2002 the track was extendet to the top because of the men downhill. In 2007 the women started the first time from the top (2.176 m), because of the weather only for one trainingsrun. At the Worldcup Race in 2009, it had finally come: the ladies were able to complete their 1st race from the top, with two winners: Anja Pärson (SWE) and Dominique Gisin (SUI).
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.
