Race Course Kandahar

The Kandahar run in Garmisch-Partenkirchen is one of the most demanding races in the Alpine Ski World Cup. In 1954, Garmisch-Partenkirchen began hosting the traditional Arlberg-Kandahar races. The Kandahar run is named in honor of Frederick Roberts, a British military leader who returned from Afghanistan as the “Earl of Kandahar”. Since 1970, FIS Ski World Cup races have been held on the Kandahar in Garmisch annually. In February 2011 Garmisch-Partenkirchen hosted the FIS Alpine Ski World Championships themed "Festival in the Snow". The event was a great success!

estimated time:
between 1:45 und 1:50 Minutes

The men’s downhill course has been modified to be a bit shorter but more challenging, including four jumps. The new middle section uses the mountain’s naturally steep and curving terrain and leads into the final third of the course which will certainly challenge the racers. The steepest section “Free Fall” can now be seen from the finish grandstand.

Start: 1478 m

Finish: 741 m

Length: 2.936 m

estimated time:
ca. 1:40 Minutes

The ladies race is mainly on the classic Kandahar run. The middle section at the ‘ice slope’ was re-created, so a separate mens course could be made. The ladies course is very technically demanding and promises first-class racing.
