The first snow is on the Saslong
Promising: last year the Dolomites were covered with early snowfalls and 2018 looks promising already. The first snow has already fallen and the preparations for the World Cup races are in full swing. Tickets are available here.
Whether along the course, at the finish area or below the camel humps - there is a right place for every ski fan on the Saslong. On Friday, 14 December the super-G will start at 12:15 pm followed by the downhill on the next day. Of note: for the first time, the start of the classic downhill race has been scheduled for 11:45 am. Excitement is guaranteed: which racer will dominate these new conditions? Who will pick the winning bib number?
And speaking of bib numbers, another novelty of the 2018 Val Gardena/Gröden races will take place on Thursday evening. In Selva Gardena/Wolkenstein, the bib numbers for the super-G will be selected followed by Friday evening in Ortisei/St.Ulrich with the super-G award ceremony and bib number selection for the downhill.
