The kick-off at Rossfeld in Berchtesgaden in January 2018 and the second Event in Ehrwald 2019 were a huge success. This winter, Maloja enters the third edition of the “Soul of the Mountains” team ski touring race. This time, the whole thing takes place in Schwangau at the Tegelberg. So – the “Soul of the Mountains” challenge cup will be passed on.
ATTENTION: change of date: Unfortunately, the appointment has to be postponed by one year. The new date is January 24, 2021. The snow conditions on site simply do not allow a safe race / event
Here are some impressions of the “Soul of the Mountains” team ski touring race 2019:
If you enjoy the exercise and want to experience nature, you are in the right place at the “Soul of the Mountains” team ski touring race at the Tegelberg. Beginners, hobby ski tourers, ambitious ski tourers or professionals over 12 years are more than welcome.
This winter, families, friends, colleagues, companies, cliques, clubs, and roundtables can start at the ski touring race. Teams of four to seven people are possible – one woman should be part of every team.
For the distance of 5 kilometers, you need no special skiing skills – but you should be physically fit. After all, the “Soul of the Mountains” team ski touring race includes one run. You should also be equipped according to the weather and conditions. You can only start with a helmet, LVS-device and appropriate clothing for the weather conditions. Helmet and LVS-device can be borrowed in advance at the registration in the start area.
For the ladies:
INFO ON THE ROUTE AND RACE VALUATION
The race will start on January 19, 2020 at 11am at the valley station of the Tegelbergbahn (830hm). From there it goes on the ‘Schutzengelweg’ (ski touring trail) past the Rohrkopfhütte up to the highest point on about 1430m. Once there, it goes down from the turning point (change point) to about 1200m, after a short climb you arrive the finish at the Rohrkopfhütte (1320hm). A well-groomed terrain leads to the destination. Time is not measured.
The team, where 4 members (including one woman) arrive first in the finish area and attach its mark to the “Wall of Fame”, wins.
AWARD CEREMONY and casual get together

Arrived at the Rohrkopfhütte and after the award ceremony, the participants let the day end in a cozy or round. In the end, all participants come to the valley – on their own responsibility – over the illuminated piste.
