The White Thrill

Saturday, 20th April 2024

The legendary race fascinates St. Anton’s winter athletes.

The "monster" Valluga must be conquered, whilst starting in blocks with hundreds of other athletes. You will be given more information at the starting number issue, although we already point out now that compliance with the ascent and the starting times is essential.

Please Note: We refer you to the fact that, due to the different slope conditions of the individual starting blocks (handicaps), the winner can only emerge from the 1st starting group. 15 "wildcards" will be issued for starters in the 2nd and 3rd starting groups. Crucial for a "wildcard" is the previous year’s result as well as the skiing career. "Wildcards" assigned by OK only and no objections may be raised.

Team classification

Since 2023, the fastest team will also be premiered. There must be at least 1 lady in each team, 1 team consists of at least 3 people. The fastest three times will be scored. When registering, please ensure that the team name is spelt correctly so that the classification system can allocate the persons.

"Der weisse Rausch" Trophy 2024

created by Sandra Brugger


"The trophies were deliberately made from white cast stone concrete. On one hand, this classic material represents winter and snow, and on the other hand, it symbolizes the "white thrill", the toughest ski race in the Alps. In the background, the mountain silhouette of Patteriol is stylized, which is steep, rugged, and distinctive, just like the cult ski race at Arlberg, which is celebrating its 25th edition this year."
