Every year - usually the third weekend in January - Kitzbühel stages the world famous Hahnekam Downhill Ski Races.
The downhill course, known as "Die Streif", is breathtaking and has a reputation of being THE downhill race of the World Cup season. It is always staged on the Saturday.
The weekend also stages the Super G on Friday, and slalom races on Sunday. The latter also counts in combination with the downhill for a prestigous combined prize.
