Cortina AUDI FIS Ski World Cup: Work Underway on Olympia delle Tofane

With its 2.560 meters of development and some challenging and famous sections like the ‘Schuss‘ (with a maximum gradient of 65% and speeds reaching nearly 140 kilometers per hour), the ‘Salto Duca d’Aosta,’ the ‘Delta,’ the ‘Gran Curvone,’ and the ‘Scarpadon,’ the Olympia delle Tofane is the most iconic track for women’s speed skiing. From January 26 to 28, it will host one of the most anticipated events in the Women’s Alpine Ski World Cup, the Cortina Audi Fis Ski World Cup, organized by Fondazione Cortina, featuring two downhill races and one super-G.

Since January 10th, about forty workers have been busy on the Olympia in preparation for the end-of-month event. The race director coordinating them is Matteo Gobbo. Snowfall over the past weekend has resulted in excellent snow conditions on the Olympia.
The official green light will be given by the usual inspection from FIS, the International Ski and Snowboard Federation, on Friday, January 13.

For the racecourse preparation, Fondazione Cortina relies on the support of Ista, the installation company, Prinoth (a company of the HTI Group, a global leader in winter technologies providing modern snow groomers), and Liski (supplying nets and mattresses).

After the Christmas holiday break, the setup work for the Rumerlo finish area has resumed, presenting a refreshed look in 2024. The most significant addition is the Prosecco DOC Sparkling Corner, a standing space located between the grandstand and the mixed zone. Here, a dedicated food & beverage service will be offered, allowing spectators to get up close to the athletes during the final phases of the competition and award ceremonies.

In addition to the Prosecco DOC Sparkling Corner, there are opportunities to experience the excitement of the Cortina Audi Fis Ski World Cup up close through Parterre (free entry on Friday, January 26) and Tribune.

Tickets for the various areas can be purchased on the website cortinaskiworldcup.com
