12. Dammkarwurm

Germany (Bayern)

Organizer: Deutscher Alpenverein (DAV)
Place: Mittenwald
Event type: vertical race
Description: 1300m. Vertical race from the Karwendel teleferic station to the upper station through the famous Dammkar valley. Fast start (first 300m on foot) on a low-angled track to the Bankerl. From here the track gains steepness through the lower and upper Dammkar to the famous and lactic acid pumping passage with skis on the back (last 150m in height). The very last 800m have to be raced on foot in the tunnel to the upper station before the finish line appears all of a sudden when being in daylight again.
One of the classic races in Germany with a long tradition, part of the DAV Skitourencup.
