Glockner - The Race is an Event for winter sports enthusiasts in Europe.

Glockner - The Race 

In the foreground is the highest mountain in Austria, "The Glockner" with 3,798m. Unique as the mountain is, is also the ski area Grossglockner/Heiligenblut, where skiing has been going on in the face of the Grossglockner since 1958. 
In the course of time, the first lifts were built, such as the Tauernberg T-bar lift.
However, even before this time there was a ski race that caused a sensation. The "Grossglockner Race" - with the first start in 1933 - was known both nationally and internationally. 
At that time, daring participants plunged down from the summit of the Glockner to the Pasterzen glacier in a wide variety of snow and weather conditions.
In 1967, the race on the Grossglockner took place for the last time and left a gap that could not be filled until now.

On 04 March 2023, the event "The Glockner-The Race" will again take place in the ski resort.
This year it will be an individual competition.
