Männlichen is a classic men’s World Cup slalom ski course in Wengen, Switzerland. Located in the Bernese Alps on Lauberhorn mountain, the course made its debut in 1930.

Männlichen is the oldest active alpine ski racing course in the world and part of the Lauberhornrennen, the oldest ski competition in the world. The Männlichen ski course has been a World Cup venue since 1930. It has hosted many memorable races over the years. As Switzerland is and always was militarily neutral, alpine competitions were held during World War II.

Männlichen shares a common finish area with “Lauberhorn”, Wengen’s famous downhill course. The course runs on natural terrain (pasture in summer), and is used only for World Cup events with its vertical drop of 190 meters.
