On an Audi FIS Ski Cross World Cup tour that features a long list of picturesque stops, Austria's Montafon region is perhaps the prettiest of them all. Once home to the great writer Ernest Hemingway (who wrote several short stories about his skiing experiences in Montafon, some of which are published in his famous collection A Moveable Feast), the area sometimes referred to as the the Blue Silvretta due to its surrounding peaks and glaciers proved itself to be an exceptional addition to the Audi FIS Ski Cross World Cup tour last season.
In 2016/17 Montafon will take on a new role when, on December 17, 2016, it becomes the third stop on the inaugural Audi FIS Ski Cross World Cup Cross Alps Tour.
