Forecast

Today will again be very mild for the season. It is uncertain, however, if the weather will remain dry. The foehn winds, which are responsible for these warm temperatures, will weaken during the day and die away completely between midday and the evening, most likely in the early afternoon. As a consequence, dense cloud will develop.

Tendency

On Saturday we will see an improvement in the weather. Sunday will bring changeable weather conditions with a mix of sunshine, clouds and a few showers.

BOBSLEIGH, LUGE AND SKELETON TRACK IN IGLS

Description

Bobsleigh, luge and skeleton track in Igls
The Olympic ice track has a long tradition. The first World Championships took place here in 1935, although back then the races were still held on a natural track.
The era of artificial ice began in the early 1960s. For the 1964 Olympic Games in Innsbruck, two separate artificial ice tracks were built for the bobsleigh and luge competitions. The tracks were some of the most impressive in the world, boasting a length of 1,506 m, 13 curves and a vertical drop of 136 m.
For the 1976 Winter Olympics, the tracks were replaced with a combined bobsleigh, luge and skeleton track.
This sports facility was the world's first combined track and became a model for many future artificial bobsleigh and luge ice tracks.
The facility was constantly extended in the years that followed. Today, the entire complex is one of the most modern in the world.

Technical details
•         Total length: 1,270 m
•         Difference in altitude: approx. 100 m
•         Number of curves: 14 (incl. the "Kreisel" corner)
•         Maximum corner height: 7 m
•         Total length of cooling pipes installed: 80 km
•         Artificial ice surface area: 5,500 m²
