The 71st Four Hills Tournament is saved. The organizers of the tour venues in Oberstdorf, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Innsbruck and Bischofshofen gave the all clear on Wednesday for the ski jumping spectacle after Christmas.
"Thanks to the cold nights and wintry weather, we have already been able to produce enough snow in all four stadiums with minimal energy input, so that we can now quickly start preparing the hills," explains Dr. Peter Kruijer, President of the Four Hills Tournament from Oberstdorf.
The 71st Four Hills Tournament starts on December 28 with the qualification in Oberstdorf and ends on January 6 with the final in Bischofshofen.
According to the press release, advance sales are running at a similarly good level as in the pre-pandemic years. Tickets are no longer available for the opening event in Oberstdorf, and more than 15,000 visitors are already expected in the World Cup Ski Jumping Arena for the qualification event as well.
