Carol West Racing On The Mannlichen


Racing for Club Members

Since its foundation, ski racing has been at the core of the DHO. The DHO is a racing club and boasts a proud heritage of ski racing which it maintains to this day. Members of all levels of ability are encouraged to represent the club in races and enjoy the thrill and camaraderie which goes with ski racing.

The key ski racing activities of the Club are:

The Inferno

The DHO was founded partly to compete in the very earliest Inferno races in Mürren. Since then, the DHO has fielded a team to race this famous and longest of downhill ski races in the calendar. Read more about DHO Inferno Racing

AICC Races

The Amateur Inter-Club Team Championships (AICC) is an annual event between the well-established ski clubs in the alps. The races were started to encourage amateur racers who may have raced as young people to continue racing in a social setting. As one of the leading ski clubs, the DHO participates in the AICC races and sometimes hosts them. Read more about AICC Races.


The DHO runs training camps for children to develop and refine their ski racing technique throughout the year. We nurture and help develop the next generation of ski racers.

British Schoolboys International Races

The DHO established the British Schoolboys Races in 1999. Schools enter teams to participate on FIS homologated courses although individual boys can also enter if they meet the criteria. In 2019-2020 the races will be held in Wengen. Read more about British Schoolboys International Races.

Weekly Club Races, including McMillan Cup

The DHO, as a racing club, holds a ski race every week of the ski season in Wengen. The race is different every week but the most famous race is the McMillan cup, a mass-start downhill race using the Ladies’ downhill run at Tschuggen. Read more about DHO weekly races.

DHO Lauberhorn

Held two days before the Inferno, the DHO Lauberhorn is a Giant Slalom down the infamous Lauberhorn Downhill course at Wengen. A perfect foil for the Inferno, this race is an event in itself.
