Vertical up Val Gardena/Gröden

from 6:30 p.m.

The Organizing Committee of the Ski World Cup is presenting a new and interesting event with VAL GARDENA - GRÖDEN VERTICAL UP.

While each December the world’s best speed specialists thunder down the Saslong from Start to Finish fighting for record times, on January 21st, 2017, endurance specialists will try to achieve the opposite by completing the climb from Finish to Start in the shortest time. It means that they will try to conquer the classic World Cup course uphill from bottom to top as quickly as possible.
There are two options: the long and the short distance. The original course measured 3.5 km and 830 m in altitude difference; the shortened track is 1.986 km long and has an altitude difference of 590 m. The Start is at 1410 m above sea level, the Finish at 2249 and 2000 m, respectively. The maximum gradient is 56%, the average gradient 24.5%.

What’s most interesting about the competition is that there are practically no rules: the choice of materials and equipment is free, as long as the ascent is propelled by one’s own power.

Registration begins on October 10th, 2016 at 8:16 pm and closes on January 14th, 2017 at 8:00 pm CET.

A maximum of 1500 athletes are allowed.
