210 kilometers and 14,500 meters of vert – For this route from Ruhpolding to Kasern recreational athletes need approximately five to seven days. Beni is aiming for the magic time limit of 36 hours, non-stop. Already, back in 2006, Beni did this same route on touring skis together with five colleagues. With the name of “Hannibal,” the six athletes broke the then-record time of three days for the route.
Beni will not be alone this time either. A few days before March 9, a six-person scouting team will run the complete route and set ski tracks so on D-Day Beni “only” has to ski. Also, during the project, two experienced mountain guides will also always be at Beni’s side to ensure his safety. The risk of complete exhaustion is very big during this project.
