General Manager of the World Cup Gardena/Gröden
1. What are some of this year’s novelties?
We have re-built the natural spectator stands...
in the Saslong stadium. This was necessary both for safety as well as looks. We wanted to make the area more welcoming for spectators so that they can fully enjoy the races.
As for the race course, the lift company Saslong has made a few adjustments reflecting the requirements set by the International Ski Federation FIS in an effort to make the course more modern and fast all in the interest of safety.
2. What will you be offering to the spectators?
We have always put a lot of effort into offering our audience a memorable sport and entertainment program and this year we’ll also have a few new things on our roster. The local tourism association is turning the town into a World Cup village. The main drag in St.Christina will be fully pedestrian and delicious local fare will be offered in a wonderful Christmas atmosphere.
