“Normal and complete" Inferno races are being planned
"After the cancellation in 2021, the OC's current planning assumes a normal and complete Inferno Race in 2022," Christoph Egger, OC President of the Inferno Races, holds out the prospect. "In addition to cross-country skiing, giant slalom and downhill, a comprehensive party programme is also being prepared," Egger continues.

The OC leadership has been completed again, two years after the resignation of Peter Ziswiler as Co-President, Bernhard Spörri will join the OC as Vice-President. The native of Mürren has long and close ties with the Inferno races. His father was already a member of the OC. Spörri himself was a participant and most recently a committed film-maker for the event. Today, the 55-year-old lives with his family in Thun.
