*** Innsbruck & the Stubai Glacier

Innsbruck - The Winter Sports Capital, twice host to the Winter Olympics offers Old World history combined with some of the best ski mountains in the world capital. The city works hard to maintain and improve its twin character as a top-class ski area and sophisticated urban center. Innsbruck, with its striking location at the foot of the Alps, offers winter guests a tempting choice of great skiing and snowboarding in six different areas.

As the ultimate winter Olympic venue, Innsbruck has hosted the world famous event twice based on an excellent variety of terrain and an impeccable infrastructure for skiers and non-skiers. The nearby village of Igls boasts the legendary men's Olympic downhill run, and stunning views of a picturesque Innsbruck below.
Free shuttle bus service links the various ski areas, and the "Super Ski Pass" is the skier's key to 310 miles (500 kilometers) of ski-able terrain and 200 lifts. The pass also covers the Stubai glacier, and even gives holders the option of excursions to St. Anton and Arlberg and Kitzbuhel.
Innsbruck is a living treasure house of history. Once an imperial capital, it embraces 800-year-old traditions adding to the authentic charm and elegance of the place. The city also has world class shopping, fine restaurants, and many sights from the historic "Golden Roof" to the fascinating Alpine Zoo.
For all people longing for the genuine winter sports fun, the Stubai Glacier is the optimum oppurtunity! On more than 50 kilometres of ski runs they may take their chance not only on intensive downhill skiing, carving and boarding, but cross-country skiing can be practised wonderfully on the alpine trail of a length of 4,5 km. 21 installations, among 4 cabin lifts, 6 chair lifts, 9 ski tows and training lifts and 2 magic carpets offer ski fans a trendous winter sports resort, and active athletes from all over the world a maximum skiing pleasure at 1.750 to 3.200 m above the sea level.

The new six person chairlift Fernau links the Fernau to the Gaißkarferner mountain. Snowboard freaks can find ideal conditions at the newly created "Boarder´s paradise" including Quarterpipes, Spins, Table Tops, Pro Jumps and a - 100 metres long - halfpipe . For carving fans there is a special run at Daunferner, regulated by a stoplight, where the feeling for bends can be experienced intensively. Two giant slalom runs and a high-speed run at Eisjochferner complete the offer for winter sports fans.

The adventurous and daring can be close to the "eternal ice" on the climber´s steps of the ice tower at Gamsgarten station, since this is an ideal training area for fans of climbing on ice. Every wednesday an introductory course climbing course takes place.
The Stubai Glacier funiculars pay a big deal of attention to the variety offered to the vacationer: starting at a professional gastronomic service, for example in the restaurant "zur Goldenen Gams" (the golden chamois), including dressing rooms and showers to sport shops with rental and storage options.

To Race page: Hahnenkamm
The creator of the poster for the 67th Hahnenkamm Race is Armin Rainer. The native of St. Johann created a portrait using only three colours: white for snow, blue for the mountains and violet for the nightlife. "I purposely selected only three colours so that it would be distinguished from the countless other multi-coloured posters," explains Rainer and continues, "the Kitzbühel signature closely follows the city's skyline." Over the rooster's head, a stylised cockscomb can be seen and a racer is integrated in its body.
The poster campaign has been sponsored by the Bank für Tirol und Vorarlberg AG for over 15 years, in particular through its Kitzbühel branch, where the poster can be bought for 15€. The 2006 Poster earned a new record with earnings of € 4,890. Proceeds went to the promotion of young athletes by the K.S.C.


ARE, Sweden (Jan. 31) - Bode Miller (Bretton Woods, NH) has two titles to defend while Olympic giant slalom champion Julia Mancuso (Olympic Valley, CA) and Lindsey Kildow (Vail, CO) will look to continue their white-hot racing as the 2007 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships open Saturday.
The first races are the men's super G Saturday and the women's super G Sunday. U.S. fans will be able to follow World Championships coverage live beginning Saturday. NBCSports.com and MediaZone.com will team up for live coverage of every race during the World Championships.
Miller, the reigning SG and downhill gold medalist from the 2005 Worlds, also leads the current World Cup super G standings after back-to-back victories in December in Val Gardena, Italy, and Hinterstoder, Austria. He also has two downhill wins and stands fourth overall, fifth in DH and sixth in giant slalom.
At the same time, both Mancuso and Kildow have won World Cup super Gs and have three victories apiece this season. Mancuso stands third overall in the women's points, second in downhill points, fourth in both SG and GS while Kildow is fifth overall, second in super G, third in downhill.

The Worlds schedule:
Saturday, Feb. 3 - Men's super G
Sunday, Feb. 4 - Women's super G
Thursday, Feb. 8 - Men's super combined (downhill, 1 run of slalom)
Friday, Feb. 9 - Women's super combined
Saturday, Feb. 10 - Men's DH
Sunday, Feb. 11 - Women's DH
Tuesday, Feb. 13 - Women's giant slalom
Wednesday, Feb. 14 - Men's giant slalom
Friday, Feb. 16 - Women's SL
Saturday, Feb. 17 - Men's SL
Sunday, Feb. 18 - Team event (two men, two women, one run each of DH and slalom)

"That course should be all right for us," Men's Head Coach Phil McNichol said. "We haven't raced on it a lot, but it's got plenty of terrain and will be a solid challenge if the weather and snow surface are good. And they got a good dump of snow recently, so we're hopeful...
"We've got guys ready to go in the speed events - Bode and Steven Nyman [Provo, UT] clearly are skiing well in speed, and we've got some others who have been stepping up and are ready for a real breakthrough. Anything's possible."
Women's Head Coach Patrick Riml echoed his colleague's optimistic outlook heading to the championships.
"We've got at least two girls challenging in all the events - Julia and Lindsey are confident, they've gotten some rest after this past weekend in San Sicario [where Kildow won and had second- and fourth-place finishes and Mancuso was fifth in downhill and eighth in the SGs] and they're ready. They'll both be challenging in downhill and super G and super combi, Julia's the Olympic GS champion and Lindsey will be strong in slalom.

Fantastic powder slopes can be found in all 12 Dolomiti Superski resorts, such as the Mittagstal, Pordoi Scharte, Cristallo, Chedul Tal. The best days are after fresh snowfall. Be the first to sweep down the slope. Powder swirling through the air; ploughing over a white blanket of glittering snow. However, freeride also requires to be considerate and careful as well as to take responsibility: always catch up on the weather forecast as well as the avalanche report; make use of the right safety equipment (avalanche transceiver, sensor, shovel and thermo-blanket), if possible go with an expert mountain or ski guide. For your own safety and that of others never go down too close to the edge of a ski slope, through natural parks or when there is a danger of avalanches. Our advice for your safety is to study carefully the avalanche report before your freeride day.
