"Winterberg is a place that lives up to its name. It is known for its snow and wind. The track itself is very unique, with each section varying in style and difficulty. The top of the track is very flat, so it is important to have a fast start and make no mistakes. The middle part of the track has a kreisel or 360 degree corner. The kreisel drops you out into the lower section of the track where the speed quickly multiplies as you enter the labyrinth. Most labyrinths are located at the top of tracks due to their difficulty, yet Winterberg's is at the fastest section of the course. Athletes can not afford to enter the labyrinth incorrectly; it either ends in a terrible time loss or a spectacular crash!"
