FIS Ski Jumping World Cup Engelberg 2014

(20 -21 December 2014, Titlis Glacier, Switzerland)

Except for the awards of the Olympic Games, the best ski-jumpers also crave to win the FIS World Cup. In December in Engelberg this is the most awaited event. It takes place on the majestic Titlis Glacier, part of the Swiss Alps.
If you have ever seen the beauty of the ski-jumps you will probably desire to see this competition live. The jumpers gather maximum points if they jump farther with style and in perfect balance. Just before they land they have travelled around 200 meters in the air. This sure is a spectacular event not only for the participants but also for the public.

Speed Race 2014

(December 2014, Titlis Glacier at Engelberg, Switzerland)

For the thrill seekers there is a magnificent event – the Speed Race. It is for both skiers and snowboarders and takes place on the Titlis Glacier in Engelberg. The gathering point is the Skischule and the races begin in the evening down the Titlisschanze. And the best thing is that the participants race all at the same time. The track is only 130 meters long but with a descent of 40° which makes things quite extreme and sometimes even painful. Just imagine how a snowboarder tumbles into a skier and the mass fall begins. And if you want to experience something as difficult and foolish as this you can subscribe for participation in the ski school.
