Built for the World Championships, stayed for the valley
When it was announced that the Alpine World Ski Championships were to be held in Val Gardena/Gröden in 1970, the people of the valley went to work. It needed infrastructures, including roads and multipurpose buildings, but above all race tracks, which did not yet exist. Everything that was built at that time benefited and still benefits the population, and a lot of it is still used today. Likewise, modernization and innovative impulses from the World Championships, including the new buildings at that time, were used by the population as an opportunity for the development of the valley and its culture. It is precisely on this principle that we would like to continue the candidacy and the possible hosting of the World Championships for future generations.
