The easiest way to get tickets is through the website of the two organizers – both offer different tickets. All tickets purchased in advance entitle you to free arrival and departure by public transport (see above).

According to the organizer, there are almost no tickets left for the main competition days at the weekend.

How are they Wetterviews in Oberhof?

The organizers of the Biathlon World Cup are not worried about the rising temperatures. According to the forecasts, it should be up to nine degrees during the day in the middle of the week, “but we are approaching the zero degree mark at night and then we will definitely have frost in the snow,” said organization chief Thomas Grellmann.

The snow depth on the routes in the Thuringian Forest varies, but is at least 50 to 60 centimeters. During the first few days of the World Cup, temperatures dropped to as low as minus nine degrees at night. In addition, since then there has been neither warm wind nor precipitation at plus degrees. If it gets warmer now, the snow on the surface could become much softer. “It’s a problem for the growers and also for the run that it gets a little deeper,” said Grellmann. But ski technicians and athletes would be fine with that, as these are not uncommon conditions.
