The 2016-2017 Ski World Cup is underway, with renowned German Ski Association and Bogner athletes racing for titles at some of the event’s most historic locations.
After winning gold on the same course in 2014, Felix Neureuther will compete in the legendary classic Chuenisbärgli Giant Slalom run at Adelboden. Adelboden is one of the three venues that have been a part of the World Cup circuit since its foundation in 1967.
The Lauberhorn race in Wengen is also among the most classic components of the annual Ski World Cup. One of its most famous champions? None other than Willy Bogner himself, who won the race at only 18 years old in 1960.
After a devastating knee injury in 2011, Andreas Sander is back in the running, vying to take the Super-G title in the legendary Hahnenkamm in Kitzbühel.
Olympic gold medalist Viktoria Rebensburg will be once again competing at the classic Italian venue, Cortina d’Ampezzo in one of her best events: the Super-G. Rebensburg won gold in the same event at Cortina in 2013.
Ask Willy Bogner what his favorite place in the world is, and he’ll almost certainly say “St. Moritz.” In addition to having competed there several times throughout his ski career, it was also his venue of choice while shooting many of his famous films.
