A very special Flexenarena opening: As part of the "XQ Team Race," teams of four will compete in a synchronised competition on 9 December in the Flexenarena in Zürs. The group presenting the best synchronised skiing (not necessarily the fastest) wins. The storied location will ensure a gripping racing atmosphere: After all, ski stars usually race down the slope of the Ski World Cup at the Flexenarena in a battle for every hundredth of a second. The winners of the "XQ Team Race" will be properly celebrated at the subsequent after-race party in the finish area (free entry).
To coincide with the start of the ski race, the 15th European Media Summit will take place in Lech from 30 November to 2 December. Here, high-calibre panels featuring representatives from politics, business and society will discuss the topic "Die große Transformation: Ängste, Herausforderungen und Lichtblicke (The Great Transformation: Fears, Challenges and Rays of Hope)."[HC1] From 7 to 10 December, decision-makers from marketing, advertising, media and digital technology will meet at the HORIZONT Winter Summit industry event in Zürs to exchange ideas. The Arlberg Weinberg, a wine and culinary event taking place from 7 to 17 December, is yet another highlight in the event calendar. Meanwhile, Advent is celebrated in Lech Zürs during the same period (until 24 December). With a varied Advent programme including an Advent market and lantern hike in the snow, the anticipation for Father Christmas intensifies. On 13 January 2024, sports enthusiasts are invited to attend The White Ring - The Race in which 1,000 participants compete on the 22-kilometre race track. To conclude the season, the Tanzcafé Arlberg Music Festival will take place from 31 March to 14 April. This stylish open-air concert series showcases down-to-earth soul and indie sounds, anti-pop and dialect pop.
