An incline of up to 42 per cent, over 1000 metres of difference in altitude in two and a half minutes, the longest skiing descent in the world and the race with the fastest passage in the World Cup (over 160 km/h!): the Lauberhorn descent is full of superlatives, but numbers can only roughly describe the dangerous downhill race. Anecdotes such as this one are better: Bode Miller crashed in 2007 after the jump into the extremely steep target slope, skidded over the finish line – and won.
