Ski World Cup Gardena and Alta Badia presented today

"Premium ski sport, entertainment and gastronomy" is what athletes, spectators and guests can expect in Gardena-Gröden and Alta Badia this year.
The two World Cup venues will hold a total of four races between December 18th and 21st: Super-G and Downhill on the Saslong and Giant Slalom and Slalom on the Gran Risa. Two further Downhill training runs are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday. The prize money for the races is set at €304,000. 2000 individuals will be in action during the week of the races. Fifteen TV stations are planning to broadcast live on the four World Cup races with dozen additional TV stations reporting on the events on a time-delayed basis. And more than 300 journalists are expected in the two Ladin-speaking valleys.

The entertainment program is also packed with sophisticated events. For instance, the orchestra “Sonoton” will perform at the award ceremony and bib draw in Gardena and spectacular fireworks will be displayed in Alta Badia along with the usual appearance of the “Frecce Tricolori” buzzing through the valley on the first day of the race. Furthermore, the “Haus Südtirol” will feature 3-star chefs from Alta Badia and the VIP Hospitality will provide the culinary highlights in Gardena-Gröden.
