The slopes

Olympia delle Tofane

Olympia delle Tofane: one of the best known and most iconic slopes of Cortina d’Ampezzo.

The slope hosted the ski competitions during the 1956 Winter Olympics, hosts the women’s Ski World Cup competitions every year and in 2021 it was the downhill, Super G and Giant Slalom slope during the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.. In 1990 it also saw Kristian Ghedina first World Cup victory, who triumphed right on his home track.

In its 2.560 meters of length it presents some famous and arduous passages: the “Schuss”, with a maximum gradient of 65%, where the “Queens of speed” jump and reach a maximum speed of 140 kilometers per hour; the “Salto Duca d’Aosta” and the blind passage of the “Delta“; the complicated “Gran Curvone” and the subsequent change of slope of the “Scarpadon“. In the final stretch where the gradient decreases, the athletes have to keep the speed high to face the final traverse and the final jump.

90 seconds of pure adrenaline, representing the great Classic of the world’s Pink Circus.
