As in previous years we will organise training / course inspection on the Tuesday Wednesday Thursday before the race depending on demand.
We will be holding the Eastwood Trophy , a Super-g on the Lauberhorn race course on Friday 26th January, this is an open race and we hope some Kandhar racers will join us.
Covid permitting ,we will have a team breakfast at the Jungfrau Hotel in Murren on Downhill race day, the 27th, and a team Dinner at the Eiger Hotel in Murren on Saturday night before the big party!
Its a great event requiring fitness and nerve as well as endurance and of course the ability to ski uphill as well as down!
All those who won medals in the last 3 years that the race was held are guaranteed an entry, if they want one. Anyone else who wishes to take part in the DHO team needs to apply for a bib and the team enters a ballot for the remaining places.
There will also be a disclaimer/ Inferno rules to sign (through the proactively app).
We will start collecting names for the DHO team NOW. They are registered with Datasport and the Inferno Office in Mid September. We learn who has been awarded an entry in Mid October and ask these people to pay using a credit card through the online shop. We re-apply for anyone who does not have a bib at this stage. There is a waiting list and it is very likely you will get a bib as more become available later on.
