THE LAST DOWNHILL RUN OR: HOW MANY SKIS FIT ON ONE PISTE?

Even the most wonderful day has to come to an end sometime. And then comes the downhill run where everyone who’s been out in the Silvretta Arena all day long meets up on the last downhill run. We caught the last turns on the 1a on a Sunday.

The last downhill run always happens, every day, as sure as an Amen at the end of a prayer. The last downhill run is the run where the ski instructor always told us: “Give it everything one last time. But take extreme care. Because we don’t want to get hurt any more now!”

The last downhill run: it’s always somehow just a little bit more tiring than the runs that went before it. Your thighs are burning on the last downhill run. You feel every muscle. You really do have to take extreme care on the last downhill run, and more than that, you suddenly meet a whole lot of people you haven’t seen all day long.
The final downhill run: photographer Max Kropitz lay in wait on the descent to the village and caught the mood of the final metres of the day for Trisanna.
