Freefall Zermatt announced a downhill race coming on December 10th on Switzerland's longest ski run. The course will travel from the Matterhorn glacier down to the town of Zermatt. Racers will drop 2,222m in less than 20 minutes after a Le Mans style mass start.

Promoters described the course as "long and wide for the first half" and "narrow, steep and full of curves in the second half." They also advised participants to dress warmly given typically frigid temperatures at nearly 4000m in December.
