ProSieben sends celebrities to the slopes in a kayak

Top class sport broadcast live from St. Anton am Arlberg at prime viewing time - does not sound like an unusual prospect. A spectacular concept, however, lies behind the new “ProSieben Winter Games“ TV show, which the commercial TV channel will be broadcasting live from the Tyrolean mountain village on 14th and 15th December 2018.

Instead of skiing or snowboarding, celebrities will race down the piste with kayaks and snow motorcycles to the finish stadium in St. Anton am Arlberg/Austria. Pop singer Stefan Mross, musician and extreme sportsman Joey Kelly and stuntwoman Miriam Höller will be competing, amongst others, with these extraordinary racing vehicles. Not only holiday guests on site, but also TV viewers can look forward to a thrilling premiere of this iconic show. Screening dates: 14th and 15th December 2018 on ProSieben, at 20.15 hrs respectively.

Two new disciplines in a class of their own
In addition to participants with a sporting background, TV starlets such as Anna-Carina Woitschack, Jessica Paszka and Paul Janke will also be competing in the St. Anton Karl Schranz finish stadium. The two new disciplines are in a class of their own: on Friday evening, 14th December 2018, the celebrities can look forward to negotiating a sporty course of steep turns and jumps in single and double kayaks. The motto will then turn to "Snow Dive" on 15th December. After a mass start on powerful snow motorcycles, the sound of roaring engines will accompany the racers down icy racetracks and a slalom slope. Christian Düren, Viviane Geppert and Matze Knop will moderate “The ProSieben Wintergames”, with Elmar Paulke commentating trackside.
