The Lauberhorn-Weltcup Abfahrt (Lauberhonr Worldcup Downhill) is the longest Downhill ski race in the world. The starting point of the race is at the top of Wixi chairlift just below the peak of the Lauberhorn. It then descends 4.455 km (2.77 miles) to finish at the bottom of the Innerwengen Chairlift in Innerwengen. Finish times of 2.5 minutes and speeds of up to 150 km/h (93 mph) are expected.

At other times the piste is open to all skiers forming an exhilarating and challenging black run in some of the most beautiful mountain terrain in Switzerland. As well as the Lauberhorn-Weltcup Abfahrt (black run 45) both a red run (43) and blue run (36) follow alternative pistes down this part of the ski area. Mountain restaurants along the route include the Wasch Bar near the top of the Bumps drag lift and another near the bottom of the Innerwengen chairlift.
