The two SKI World Cup events scheduled in Bormio on December 28 and 29 have been presented in the panoramic room of Palazzo Lombardia, on the 39th floor. The occasion was the press conference organized by “Cancro Primo Aiuto” Onlus to promote the youth circuit “Memorial Walter Fontana”. It has also been an occasion to present the other main winter sports’ events that make of Valtellina an important melting pot of all winter sports. From the Slalom Italian Championships in Bormio on (December 30) to the DH Italian Championships in S. Caterina Valfurva (March 20/25, 2018). From the short-track events in Bormio, to the Freestyle Europa Cup in Livigno (March 22/23, 2018).

But the main events are the DH race scheduled on December 28 and the Alpine Combined the day after, both on the Stelvio. “We made the promise to bring big ski events back on the Stelvio and we’ve kept the promise” said Maurizio Gandolfi, a member of the Organizing Committee. This event, together with the Italian Grand Prix taking place at Autodromo di Monza in September, is the biggest sport event in Lombardia. “A region that always deserves the highest level.” said Fabrizio Sala, Regione Vice President.

In the meanwhile, works are in constant progress on the Stelvio to prepare it at its best, not only for the ski area opening on December 2, but also considering December 15, the day of the Fis snow control. “The temperature inversion of these days doesn’t help us, but a cold wave is expected on the weekend. That gives us the opportunity to complete the snow making on the lower part of the track. Over 2000 meters a.s.l. it’s all right, and in 10 days we’re going to arrive at the town’s level.“ said Valeriano Giacomelli, CEO at Bormio Implant
