Wengen is the home of DHO Racing and the home of the Lauberhorn Race. 8 Englishmen started racing from the top of the Lauberhorn in 1921. Three years later they formed the DHO Club and two years later the Lauberhorn Downhill race starts.
Wengen is our ski-season training base. For our Christmas training camp, we use the Nordwand training piste. Underneath the shadow of the North Face of the Eiger, this piste has a hard snow base from November to May so is excellent for training. The piste is 0.5km long with a vertical drop of 150 metres giving us many options for training lanes. It is served by the Nordwand high speed chair maximising the time the children are training.
This is a camp for both current trainees to prepare for the season and a taster camp forbudding new racers.
