Abstract: Night ski mountaineering competition in men’s team around the Sella massif

Due to the recent heavy snowfalls and to the bad weather conditions, Sellaronda Skimarathon organizers decided to postpone the important alpine-skiing night competition scheduled on Friday 21st Febrary to Friday 14th March because of safety reasons.

One of the most famous international ski touring competitions has come this year to its 19th edition. The Sellaronda Skimarathon is reserved only to extreme skiers, matched in two-people teams, who have to overcome a total of 42 kilometres and a total drop of over 2.700 metres along demanding courses around the Sella massif. This ski mountaineering competition unfolds at night along the ski carousel joining, across the four Dolomitic passes of Sella, Gardena, Campolongo and Pordoi, as many Ladin valley (Gardena, Badia, Fassa and Livinallongo and the villages of Canazei, Selva di Val Gardena, Corvara and Arabba). The athletes race with alpine skis applied with seal skin to help tackle the ascents, and face the technical course with determination and technical ability, displaying their experience, specific basic training and ability to adapt to the ever changing atmospheric conditions.

On this occasion, the start and the finish location, which varies from year to year in rotation, will be Canazei.

The enrolment opens on 8th January 2014.

The Sellaronda Skimarathon is also included in the Dolomites Cup circuit.
