For the first time, an unprecedented event will take place in Lech on 1 April 2017.
"Rüfi 900" is not for the faint of heart, but asks the participants to climb one of the steepest ski routes in the world. How the given distance is conquered is up to you. You can choose your equipment freely, as long as no motorized help is used.
Start is by mass start in Lech at the church square on 1444m, then it goes on over the district Stubenbach to the Wöstertäli. To get to the Rüfikopf at 2350m you have to cross a part (300m) with an average inclination of 78%. From the start to the finish, 959 heights are to be mastered.
