Snowboard FIS World Cup Carezza
The winter season opens on the Carezza Pass with two competitions valid for the Snowboarding World Cup
The winter season 2019-2020 in Val di Fassa opens with the Snowboarding World Cup which takes place on 19th December and is disputed on the sunny slope Pra di Tori at the Carezza Pass. The place, far only 9 km from Vigo di Fassa, is in the list of the Italian locations chosen by the international Ski Federation to host the competitions of the Snowboarding World Cup. On Thursday 19th December the best professional snowboarders defy one another in two competitions: women’s and men’s giant parallel slalom. Among champions, Mirko Felicetti from Moena, Roland Fischnaller and Aaron March from Alto Adige, are listed as possible winners.
The programme (which might be subject to changes) includes lots of "green" entertainment, such as concerts, shows and fireworks display. There is also an area devoted to the sponsors of the event.
This is another important success for the Val di Fassa-Carezza ski area which has been chosen as FIS ski training centre for the national male and female teams since 2006. The valley is once again under the spotlight on occasion of the night slalom race (valid for the Alpine Skiing European Cup) which takes place on the dreaded Alloch piste in Pozza di Fassa.
