  Look at that name, I can't pronounce it either; maybe Wilbur can.  The unpronounceable name refers to a sled jump in the Bavarian area of Germany.
  The "jump" is a time honored tradition.  The sleds are either originals or copies of a design from long ago.  The object of the "jump" is distance, the winning distance is about 85 feet.  It appears from the photos to be a rough ride.
