Winter is coming and for those who couldn’t wait to go snowboarding and skiing now is finally time to rush into the fray!
The mountain resorts open the door to lovers of winter sports, ski resorts are reactivated and several alpine refuges are ready to welcome everyone who would enjoy typical meals in a warm atmosphere among the Alps.
In fact, every year take place some important worldwide sport competitions, which are a great attraction for all enthusiasts who take advantage of the vacations to go on mountain and see all champions of these sports, spending days having fun with a lot of other events promoted by the organization.
Also for the 2014-2015 winter season, the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup planned some Italian stages, those who by the time can be defined as “classics”.
Regarding male competitions, they will start in Val Gardena the weekend of 19th and 20th of December on the Saslong ski slope with the downhill (on Friday) and the Super-G (on Saturday).
On Sunday 21st, the tour is moving to Alta Badia – the heart of Dolomites - which is one of the historical sites of the World Cup. Here, all talents of the Giant Slalom will face on the Gran Risa ski slope.
To complete this intense weekend, there is the last stage that will take place on Monday 22nd in Madonna di Campiglio with a wonderful “night” slalom.
At the end, the competitions will take place again the next weekend (28th of December) with the “classic” downhill of Valtellina. This year the ski slope won’t be the Stelvio in the town of Bormio anymore but it will be located in the nearby Santa Caterina Valfurva.
Female competitions will be held in the Olimpia delle Tofane - ski slope in Cortina d’Ampezzo - the 17th and 18th January. On Saturday is scheduled the downhill and on Sunday the Super-G.
Slopes, gates, speeding and much more. Our mountains are perfect also for sports such as Nordic skiing, Ski jumping, biathlon and all the disciplines of the freestyle and Ski cross and Snowboard cross.
In particular, also this year we will host some classic stages of the Nordic skiing: the Tour de Ski (7th and 8th of January) and the trial of classic technique for men and women in Val di Fiemme (Fiemme Valley).
In short, there is something for all tastes. After all, the cold is coming, and the snow as well.
