Skiing in Val Gardena
December gets closer and everyone starts dreaming of snow.
Children start fantasizing about Christmas and are eager to discover what gifts they will receive…
Ski lovers, instead, were longing for this month for a completely different reason: a world-renonwed sport event that will take place in Val Gardena.
We are talking about the FIS Ski World Cup, whose 30th anniversary falls in this year.
The Saslong (the second longest piste in the world) will host two races you cannot miss.
Friday 18 December, at 12.15 pm, the men’s Super-G will take place, preceded by entertainment and followed by light shows. The race will also be projected live on a big screen.
Saturday 19 December, still at 12.15 pm, the men’s Downhill will take place. In the morning, you will wake up to the sounds of the local marching band. You will enjoy entertaing events before the race, that will be followed by a party in the arrival area.
“ The spectators will live breathtaking moments when the athletes reach the most challenging and feared points of the piste: the “Camel Humps”, where the champions reach dizzying speeds and make a jump of over 80 meters, and the Ciaslat, with its extreme curves and bumps. ”
The 30th anniversary of this exciting event also represents an opportunity to have a break and spend a weekend in the snow, in the wonderful Dolomites, where you will live unforgettable moments surrounded by the Christmas atmosphere.
It’s a good reason to book a mountain holiday at the Tyrol Hotel, which will allow you to combine sport, fun and relaxation and to attend an exciting event, on a historic piste in Val Gardena.
There are lots of activities to do between a race and the other.
Due to the championship, you may feel like skiing or doing fun activities in the snow, e.g. snowshoeing, ice skating, nordic skiing or ski tours.
The laziest can go shopping and enjoy the suggestive Christmas markets in the surroundings.
Finally, the greediest will have the opportunity to experience the tradition of South Tyrol and taste all the traditional dishes and the typical products of Val Gardena in our restaurant.
Well… we are looking forward to welcome you to the Tyrol Hotel and give you an unforgettable experience, with a sport event loaded with adrenaline, in a special location.
