Simply aim for the heights! Head up to mountain refuges, summit crosses, the start of the piste. Look across to the chain of mountains on the horizon and down towards the valley. Across the tops of forests and expanses of meadows. Simply follow the call of the Dolomites, hiking, cycling or skiing – tobogganing, cross-country skiing or snowboarding! And take the time once in a while to stop, wonder, and reflect. The mountain pastures and refuges of Obereggen in the Val d'Ega will give you that unique lofty feeling, too! The will of the Latemar to send adventure your way is unflagging. Obereggen is acutely aware of the value and beauty of nature: considerable attention is therefore paid to environmental protection and sustainability. All year round – time and again! Yes, in Obereggen you can really rise above it all.
The slalom, with which Obereggen celebrates the first 40 years of the European Cup, will take place on Tuesday 19 December. The race is part of a busy programme in the region with three World Cup and two European Cup races in the space of just five days.
With a maximum slope gradient of 55 per cent, it is also a challenge for the world's best slalom racers.
Do you like to take part in exciting races and bets with friends?
On the two parallel courses you can test your skills, compete with your friends on the track and fight for the fastest time.
Both courses have a start gate and a finish gate, where the running time of both skiers is recorded to determine the winner. Two cameras record your turns through the gates.
From start to finish, you will feel like a real racing star!
