Arber to host next Audi FIS Alpine World Cup Event

The Ladies Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup continues on February 4 and 5 in Arber (Germany) with the Giant Slalom and Slalom races (Arber Kristall Pokal). The first Arber World-Cup race took place in 1975/76 at the Grosser Arber.
Located in the south-eastern part of Germany near the Czech border on the road from Munich to Plzen, Zwiesel has been known for a long time for its fine Crystal factories.
The Grosser Arber (1456 m) is the highest peak of the Bavarian-Bohemian-Mountain Ridge. The ski resort offers 7 kilometres of pistes (3 blue, 2 red and 2 black) served by 6 lifts (1 six-seater gondola, 2 six-seater chairlifts and 3 drag lifts) with a longest run of 5,000 m. The FIS racing runs and the new World-Cup Run, which is also the training slope for the federal training center for alpine skiing LLZ, provide the opportunity for sport skiing and carving.
