In late October, the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup season opens with a giant slalom for both genders on the glacier. The races in October 2016 started at an elevation of 3,040 m (9,974 ft) and finished at 2,670 m (8,760 ft), for a vertical drop of 370 m (1,214 ft).
The glacier is also an attractive area for regular skiers and plays an important role in connecting the main ski area of Sölden with the Tiefenbach glacier.
