Since then, both clubs have competed again and again, have produced some excellent skiers and are still strongly committed to the younger generation. The DHO currently has the edge: With around 1200 members, it is one of Britain’s largest ski clubs. Many of them come year after year to Wengen, bringing children and grandchildren. 'It is an extended perennial family' says Karl Näpflin, councilor, long-time president of Wengen Tourism and himself a member of the DHO. Originally there was even a regulation that said that whoever misses a winter in Wengen has to leave the club. This was abolished in 1927. The DHO members have nevertheless remained faithful to Wengen. Nowadays, the DHO welcomes members from around the world, though chiefly from English-speaking countries.
