The winter season in Val di Fassa opens with the Snowboarding World Cup which takes place on December 14th and is disputed on the sunny slope "Pra di Tori" at the Carezza Pass
The Carezza Pass, 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 December 14th, from 9 a.m., the best professional snowboarders defy one another in two competitions: women’s and men’s giant parallel slalom. Among champions, Mirko Felicetti from Moena is listed as possible winners, while Lucia Dalmasso will hold high the female colours of Ski Team Fassa.
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.
- from 9 a.m. - women's and men's PGS qualifications
- 1 p.m. - snowboard FIS World Cup PGS women's and men's finals
- 2.30 p.m. - prize-giving ceremony
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.
