Base camp will once again be the hotel of the German national teams, the Hotel Liebe Sonne. The camp is a special reward for the impressive sporting achievements of the young skiers of the last competition season.
“Working with children is a lot of fun,” said Neureuther. “Therefore, I decided immediately after my retirement to carry out the camp again, because it has just grown to my heart. Eleven years ago I started to inspire the young boys and girls for alpine ski racing. I like to invest time and money for that. ”
Wolfgang Maier, DSV Alpine Sports Director, praised Neureuther’s commitment: “It is exemplary that Felix stands up for the alpine ski youngsters. For the children, it is a great motivation to train with their idol. The first ten editions were already a complete success.”
