Cortina d’Ampezzo (Belluno), 21 December 2022 – The preparation of the Rumerlo Finish Area of the Olympia delle Tofane, the track where the Women’s Audi FIS Ski World Cup races will take place during 20-22 January 2023, is well underway. The three-day Ski World Cup in Cortina will see the world’s top female skiers compete in one downhill and two super-G races. The recent snowfalls have undoubtedly aided the preparations, in addition to turning the breathtakingly beautiful Ampezzo Valley into a picture perfect winter wonderland.
The Finish Area at the feet of the legendary Tofane mountains has hosted the Women’s World Cup for nearly three decades and was the stage of last year’s Ski World Championships.
«The organizing committee is the same that oversaw the 2021 Ski World Championships» explains Michele Di Gallo, General Manager of Fondazione Cortina, the organization set to play a central role in Cortina’s winter sports events over the next few years. «We are working to guarantee top hospitality for all the fans and enthusiasts» underlines Di Gallo, «We want the newly renovated Finish Area, a legacy from the 2021 Ski World Cup, to become the heart of an event that aims to confirm its position as a classic on the Women’s Ski World Cup circuit».
The Finish Area will have a Fan Village with activities for the fans offered by various partner companies, as well as the opportunity to enjoy local Ampezzo food traditions. Fans wishing to attend the three-day Cortina Ski World Cup event can choose between the parterre area, with free admission to the super-G on Friday 20 January, and the grandstand. Spectators can also take advantage of the exclusive Tofana Lounge, with a large terrace and excellent views of the arrivals area. Chef Team Cortina, consisting of chefs from a selection of Cortina’s most prestigious restaurants, will be responsible for the catering, showcasing the gastronomic traditions for which the territory is famous. The Lounge will also offer a wine and cocktail bar, as well as music and DJ-set. A dedicated shuttle service will be available.
