Get one of the last spots for ED.4!

We’re almost sold out for the upcoming Eigertour ED4! Only ten days after registration opening most of the tickets are sold. Thank you all for your support! There are a few last spots left in the four categories.

For the registration pilots need to have a link to a video showing their landing skills, be it on a narrow fiel, upslope landing or toplanding – we’re looking foward to see many interesting videos.

Rumour goes, that the ProRace will do a Aletschgletscher round – a completely new route around the biggest Ice of central Europe.

The Academy is split into two – the ones that are aiming to become Challenge athletes in the future, and those wanting to experience Eigertour in a stress-free athmosphere.

Chrigel’s Trainingsplan

In a Month time we will be ready to race in Grindelwald. Want to know how Chrigel prepares for his first Hike&Fly Race of the season? This outstanding athlete has always been very accessible to all of us and is willing to share his knowledge with you! thanks Chrigel. And hey…. don’t think you can handle this amount of training if you haven’t been near it for now – it will destroy you rather than help. Chrigel also shares his packing list: minimal but everything needed is in it: check it out!

Update Eigertour ED.3

Dear Eigertour Fans, it’s time for an update on our next adventure race.

First of all: We have the intention to make Edition.3 of the Eigertour happen as planned.

So far, we have the good news, that the mountain hut’s are already allowed to reopen if they comply with the rules set by our government (you will probably need to bring your own sleeping bag – so start thinking about which one to take and how to fit it into your harness). Paragliding training up in groups up to 5 people is also permitted whilst keeping always the 2m distance. On May 27th, we will be informed about the next reopening steps concerning sport events. There is a good chance that the Eigertour might be held.

The next update for you will be at the beginning of June 2020. So keep training as much as you can and please contribute by strictly following the social distancing rules, which should be easy to fulfill for a hike&fly athlete.

Regards from the Eigertour Crew

For those of you who want to train in our playground: our athlete Roger Fischer just published an extraordinary book where you can find many hike and fly routes, access ways to the mountain huts, photos of the previous Eigertour Races and a lot of hints from Chrigel Maurer on hike&fly matters: the hike&fly Guide Berner Oberland – you can get it under:

45 inscriptions in 48 hours for 2020

We are overwhelmed about the interest in our Edition.3 of the Eigertour.

With Pilots from:

Austria, Czech Republic, Norway, Slovakia, Canada, Holland, New Zealand, UK, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Japan and South Afrika it seems the Brand Eigertour has spread the globe.

We are also very happy to have Chrigel Maurer pushing the level of the Pro Race next year as usual.
