MCMSki V will see the return of the Richard Tweedie Ski Race during the break of Wednesday January 6th. The Tweedie Cup Ski Race will take place on the Dieschen run, located 10 min walking distance from the Hotel Schweizerhof. We encourage all conference participants, including non-skiers, to come to the arrival of the ski race and enjoy the friendly competition! The race starts at approximately noon and will last about 1 hour; each participant will get two timed runs down the hill, plus practice runs. Participation to the ski race is free (registration required), but you must buy your own ski pass. A daily pass for the Dieschen lift alone is 26 CHF (we may be able to get a better deal for group tickets – ask at the conference registration desk – Schweizerhof).

The prize for winning the Tweedie Ski Cup is a pair of skis, kindly offered by Blossom skis. At the end of the race there will be complementary vin-brulè (hot mulled wine) and a selection of local foods. Guests can take part in the ski race but the prize is reserved for conference participants.
