The glacier run on the Gemsstock is named in honour of the Sapporo Olympic Champion Bernhard-Russi-Run, who says of the run: "It is my favourite ski run and one of the most beautiful slopes in the Alps." The first Bernhard-Russi-Run downhill race took place in the 1998/99 season: 3.5km length, 850m height difference, four gates and an average speed of 100km/h (62mph). 18 participants tried to beat the target time set up by Bernhard Russi. The event was incidentally won by Ian Russi, Bernhard's son.
