Sudelfeld has been hosting a few World Cups already.
It all began back in 2009 when Sudelfeld, Germany's biggest connected ski area, became the tenth's German venue site to host a Snowboard World Cup organizing a parallel giant slalom.
In 2010, another parallel race was hosted.
After a break of one year, the venue was back on track in 2012 hosting another parallel giant slalom which would be the plan for 2014 as well. The scheduled parallel giant slalom would be the last World Cup event prior to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Although the race might not count for the qualifying process anymore it brings the last real test under competition conditions for the world's best race boarders.
The resort offers a total of 31 kilometres of slopes (5 km easy, 23 km intermediate and 3 km advanced). The family friendly areal also provides three chair lifts and many t-bar lifts making it a modern and natural-looking winter sport areal which has the first reported skiing activities dating back to the beginning of the 20th century.
Situated in the Upper Bavarian Alps, Sudelfeld benefits from perfect infrastructure and outstanding transport connections. As Munich is only a one-hour-drive away, the resort in Bayrischzell attracts the inhabitants of the Bavarian capital who are looking for a cool day in the snow.
In addition, Sudelfeld can be reached with the train. Starting in Munich, the trip takes about 1.5 hours. A special ticket includes the day pass plus the travel expenses. So, everyone gets the chance to ride the slopes from December to April during the operating hours from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
