Ideal
Requirements

The FIS homologated slope 8 is only accessible for race training, secured with nets, equipped with launch ramps and tower cannons including water connections for watering. In other words, ideal conditions for intensive and effective training. From 2025, additional snow farming will ensure optimum snow conditions so that you can always rely on perfect slopes.

Flexible
Training

With flexible training options due to different time slots, excellent accessibility of only 20 km from the Zillertal highway exit to the lift entrance as well as extensive accommodation options on site and in the valley, nothing stands in the way of a perfect race infrastructure at training-friendly altitudes.

What are the rates for using the lifts and training/racing tracks?

The tariffs include the use of the lift (ski tickets) and the use of lines (line fee) on the training/racing course.

The line fees are staggered over three periods:

1st period: 01.11. to 30.11.2024
2nd period: 01.12. to 20.12.2024
3rd period: 21.12. to 20.04.2025

Which ski/lift ticket do I need and where can I buy it?

To use training slope 8, every training guest must be in possession of a valid ski/lift ticket.

Before the official start of the season (1st period: 01.11. to 30.11.2024), you can purchase a training ticket that corresponds to the duration of the training period (usually 3 hours). Alternatively, the Snowcard Tirol or the Zillertal Mountain Pass + Upgrade can be used. The Zillertal Mountain Pass is also valid from November 11th.

From the official start of the season (2nd period and 3rd period), all other ticket types, such as day tickets, season tickets and time or multi-day tickets, are valid in addition to the training ticket. Tickets can be purchased via vending machines and at the ticket offices. Training tickets can also be purchased at the Race Office at the 8er Treff.

Important note: Please note that transportation on the lift is only possible if a valid lift ticket is presented at the turnstile. This applies in particular to racers in race suits who do not wear their lift ticket visibly. We ask for your understanding and cooperation.

What disclaimers are there and how are they confirmed?

During the reservation process, confirmation of the disclaimer by the participating team is mandatory. This declaration will be sent to you in the confirmation email. The signature of one member of the team is valid for the entire team.

Important note: Clearly defined areas are available for storing rucksacks and skis. Please use these designated areas to ensure proper storage. If this is not observed, the items must be removed.

Is there a refund if I don't show up for training?

Please note that no refunds are possible for no-shows. An exception is made if a training course cannot take place due to external influences. In such a case, a refund or voucher will be granted.

Where can I get more information and where is the Race Office?

The Race Office is your central contact and information point and is located in the 8er Shop at the valley station of the 8er Jet. Here you will receive your line allocation on the training day and can buy training tickets. The Race Office is open daily from the start of the racing season.
