Ski races from 17-19. December  at Val Gardena and on the Gran Risa slope in La Villa, South Tyrol, Dolomites in Italy

From 17-19. December, South Tyrol hosts four races of the men's Alpine FIS Ski World Cup. The giant slalom on the Gran Risa slope in Alta Badia and the descent in Val Gardena are among the great classics of alpine skiing. In winter 2015-2016, a parallel giant slalom by night was launched on the Gran Risa slope for the first time. The fascinating discipline has been an official FIS discipline since winter season 2015-2016.

With a vertical drop of 448 m (1469ft) on a 1255 m (4117ft) length and a maximum slope of 53%, the Gran Risa gradient in La Villa is considered as one of the most beautiful slopes in the Ski World Cup.

The breathtaking descent in the forest begins just below the bifurcation of the black and red slopes of Piz La Ila. After the steep slope at the beginning a rapid curve leads on a steep, narrow channel. After a second change of direction the slope ends up to the finish.

The slope has interesting properties and meets the requirements of professional skiers. On the Gran Risa slope big ski stars celebrated their successes, including Ingemar Stenmark, Ted Ligety, Mark Girardelli, Michael of Grünigen, Bode Miller, Marcel Hirscher and of course the most successful Italian ski racer, Alberto Tomba.
During the Ski World Cup weekend in December in La Villa you feel a very special atmosphere: Thousands of ski fans from all over Europe meet to cheer for their favourite athletes and celebrate party.
