The biggest triumph however was the female single record of Anna Oberparleiter that probably will become legendary, as she topped the old men’s record of Franz Venier, Austria in 2009 by unbelievably 11.613 meters difference in altitude. Matthias Steinmayr is the winner of the men’s competition.

World Record of all 16 athletes:
From 14 to 15 January 2011, Kronplatz will attempt to set an exciting new skiing world record: the Guinness World Record of the biggest difference in altitude meters covered on skis in only 24 hours. In three individual categories, 16 skiers will attempt to ski a total of 1 million metres of difference in altitude at Skirama Kronplatz. Another world record experiment will be the same attempt mastered by a team of four skiers. With the current record standing at 92.160 m, achieved by Franz Venier (Austria), the thrilling highlight of the event will be one athlete’s attempt to top this outstanding achievement. All participants have been training for months for this extreme challenge. In order to master it, the skiers will need to use the Kronplatz cable cars, in other words: for a total of 24 hours, they will ride up to the top of Kronplatz in the cable car and ski down – nonstop! The team, which consists of the contenders, a doctor, a motivational coach, a nutrition expert, a physiotherapist and a series of other experts, has until 14 January to prepare for the big day.
