Longest ski race in the world at Nassfeld

By Thomas Hochwarter

Hundreds of skiers are expected to take part in what organisers claim is the longest race in the world later this month.

Skiers competing in the "Wulfenia Trophy" event, taking place on 30 January at Carinthia’s Nassfeld resort, will cover 32.2 kilometres with time spent on ski lifts connecting the different tracks their only chance to rest.

Former World Cup skier Armin Assinger will host the exhibition race which will see around 300 skiers battle it out from 8.15am.

To register, contact the Hermagor tourism office: info@hermagor.at, +43 428 220 43, www.nassfeld.at
