DVD for the 75th Race anniversary - a film by
Bernhard Spörri

The inferno race will be held for the 75th time in 2018. What began in 1928 with a handful of British ski enthusiasts is today a major event with 1850 racers.
What does it take to race with the best? How has the race developed? how is the event organised today? What about safety? The film looks at the Inferno winners, current and former organisers and historians of the Kandahar ski club and gives an insight into the fascinating history of the Mürren Inferno race.


The DVD can be purchased for CHF 25.00 from Friday 19 January 2018 after the Inferno procession. Please note that the film is mainly in German with subtitles in German.
