Klaus Huber is also known as the originator of the idea for the race Der Weiße Ring, although a simple idea was not enough, as he explains: "I was initially sceptical as to whether it would be possible to hold a ski race over the entire route - a ski circuit of approx. 22 km! After all, it's not done with putting up a few gates and getting start numbers, there's much more to it than that, of course. On race day, whole sections of the ski area have to be closed off and partly secured for public skiing, you need fail-safe timekeeping and above all numerous helpers and much more." In cooperation with the Ski-Club Arlberg, Lech Zürs Tourism and the lift companies with the Pool West, as well as other partners such as the landowners, the piste and mountain rescue services, the municipality's building yard and many others involved, Klaus Huber's idea then turned into the feasible. Today, Klaus Huber can look back on Der Weiße Ring with pride: "I am simply delighted that something unique has been created with Der Weiße Ring Race, from which all those involved benefit and put their heart and soul into it, and that after the race you can see enthusiastic faces all round. It's simply an experience to cross the finish line on a closed-off race course from Lech via Zürs, Zug and Oberlech, to compete with established skiing greats and to be celebrated afterwards!
