Slope manager Herbert Hauser gets his crew back into position on Monday after work on the Streif had largely rested on warm Sunday. The first downhill training is planned for Tuesday, temperatures below zero and fresh snow are very welcome.
The piste, in particular, requires cold temperatures, which are forecast for the coming nights. “The ground is in very good condition. If the ground rises, the fresh snow shouldn’t be a problem either. We need a little snow for the picture, because it’s green in the lower area,” said Hauser on Sunday evening to APA – Austria Press Agency . That should have changed by Monday. Good training weather is confirmed for Tuesday, the next training would be on Thursday according to the current status.
The fact that the snow cover on the Streif has withstood the warm weather weeks now ensures that the Hahnenkamm races can take place. It’s been a long time since the last cold spell. “Before Christmas we had completed the basic preparation, then it got warm. We got through it well and there was enough snow. The toughest thing was waiting to see when you go in with the machines so you don’t break anything. And that you don’t have too much snow loses,” said Hauser.

The snow layer is almost the same everywhere and consistently 40 to 50 centimeters thick on the race line, and the crash areas are also sufficiently covered with snow. The Streif is relatively natural due to the snow situation, waves were not compensated and none were artificially prepared. “This year the contours of the local mountain are more visible, I think it will be a very exciting story.”
There is enough water in the snow, so temperatures below zero and clear nights are longed for. After the pistes were taken care of on Sunday, it will be very busy on Monday and the slide squads will also be used. At peak times, 250 people will be working on the mountain.
