In honor of the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2013 in Schladming, voestalpine, the global steelmaking, processing and technology group, and ÖSV have erected an extraordinary steel construction. voestalpine skygate is the name of this architecturally outstanding symbol. The structure is an arch that the athletes have to pass under before they cross over the finish line. No less than 130 tons of steel were used to produce the 35 meter high arch. 890 meters of steel pipes support the construction, allowing the 35 meter arch, which is anchored on only one side of the slope, to arch out over the races’ final slope. The dimensions of the structure are impressive. Even an Airbus A340 could pass under the new landmark.
