The Nostalgia Ski World Cup


[post_ads_2]
The Ski World Cup has been going strong since it’s inauguration in 1967. The International Ski Federation hosts this yearly competition where teams from all over the world compete for the cup, a trophy in the shape of a crystal globe weighing 19 pounds. This is no typical ski competition, though. The slopes out there are certainly not for novices and leave the crowds at the edge of their seats with each turn.

Aside form the Winter Olympics, The World Cup is considered the top alpine ski racing competition in the world.

There are four disciplines competitors try to rank in: salom, giant salom, Super G, and downhill. Each one proves to be more difficult than the last. Contestants are awarded points depending on their rank at the end of each race, culminating to one final score at the end, which determines the ultimate winners.
Tune in on January 12, 2016 to catch the race from the beginning.

The Nostalgia Ski World Cup
[post_ads_2]
There are small competitions within The World Cup, including the Nostalgia Ski World Cup. Although they are all exciting in their own right, this is the one ski competition you won’t want to miss. From January 15th until January 17th this ski world championship will take place in Leogang, Austria. Teams from Austria and Czech Republic compete for their chance at the crystal globe.

No Ordinary Ski Competition
As mentioned, each of the ski competitions brings it’s own unique flair. From death defying jumps and slopes, to world famous talent, there’s always excitement in the air at the Ski World Cup. The Nostalgia Ski World Cup brings a little something extra to the table with that touch of wistfulness from the past.
The name nostalgia is not a coincidence.

Contestants wear clothes from the past, such as vintage ski attire from the 1930’s and 1960’s. In 1930, skiing transformed from a leisurely activity to a competitive sport, and the attire from this era certainly represents a changing time. You can catch them wearing old school snow suits and funky boots.

Some contestants wear clothing from their family members. This might even include the use of old skis and other equipment. Don’t ask us about the safety of this tradition, but it’s certainly a sight to see.

Beautiful Austria

Another bonus to catching the Nostalgia Ski World Cup in Leogang, and perhaps the most important aspect to account for to some attendees, is that Austria is absolutely beautiful. Breathtaking views of the mountainside are reason enough to make your way to this competition. The winter sport section of the mountainside sits between an elevation of 830 and 2,096m.

The Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn is a combination of the Saalbach Hinterglemm leogang Ski Resort and the Fieberbrunn Ski Resort, which make up what’s known as the Skicircus. This is now the largest ski resort in Austria and home to the Nostalgia Ski World Cup. The resort covers the Pinzgau Region in Austria, which includes Salzburg State, as well as Tyrol.

This resort meets the highest standards out there for both skiers and non-skiers alike. Boasting 70 state of the art lifts available to guests, it doesn’t matter if you’re experienced or just trying out the bunny slopes, you will feel right at home. The price of the slopes varies by age, ranging from 50 for adults, 38 for youth, and 25.50 for children. The season generally lasts from mid November until April of the following year.

Come to Leogang, Austria to experience the most memorable ski competition around. The 7th annual Nostalgia Ski World Championship will be the best one yet.
