“SC:13”: this is this year’s acronym used for Ski Challenge 2013, the computer video game that lets you compete in the most challenging downhill races of the Ski World Cup. And once again, the race on the Saslong is the season’s opener. You can download the game or play it from your browser at www.skichallenge.at.
A total of five races are included in this year’s calendar. Along with Saslong, the classic races in Bormio, Wengen, Kitzbühel and Schladming are featured. Qualify for Gardena and you’re in the game. The first users have already clocked impressive times on the well virtually prepared courses.
