Audi FIS Ski World Cup Val Gardena / Gröden
The slopes

A World Cup on existing courses


The dossier for the 2029 World Cup bid presents the existing courses to the FIS. We will build no new slopes. Downhill and super-G will be held on the current World Cup Saslong rack in Selva/Wolkenstein. We will use the Ciampinoi 3 track to crown the world champions in technical disciplines such as slalom and giant slalom. The slopes in the Piz Sella/Plan de Gralba area, in Dantercepies, the Cir and Ria tracks and on Mont Sëura the Alpha track will be used as training courses. The latter will also be available after the World Championships to the local junior skiers as a training track. 

Environmentally conscious partners
The facilities have already been adapted using the most innovative technologies in cooperation with renowned companies from the ski and snowmaking industry and beyond. For example, water is saved by producing the same amount of snow with less use of this valuable resource and energy. For many essential areas, the organizers of the World Cup plan to work closely with South Tyrolean companies that have pioneering roles and are at the cutting edge of innovation and sustainability. In this way, we are planning the future together!

Facts & Infos

Facts & Infos of race-slope


What makes Spinel jump difficult is that athletes have to leap into the steepest section of the course – a 56% grade – and they have to change direction virtually mid-air to the right leading into a compression.


The "Saut dl Moro", a 40-meter-long jump which takes skiers into the second compression.


The Sochers jump has skiers 15 to 20 meters in the air. It is followed by a flat, yet intense, left-right-left gate combination ending at the 1st Mauer ("Wall"). Skiers jump approximately 35 meters directly to the 1st Mauer and have to sway to the right to the 2nd Mauer. The jump on the 2nd Mauer contemporaneously serves as the entry into the flat section leading to the 1st Camel Hump. Athletes reach a top speed of 130 km/h.

Camel Humps

The Camel Humps represent the most spectacular section of the Saslong. They were named by the late and former Austrian FIS TD Sepp Sulzberger. Uli Spiess from Austria was the first athlete to attempt and succeed in jumping all three Humps at the same time instead of taking each jump separately. Since Spiess' premiere, skiers today mostly absorb the first jump (a.k.a. "Girardelli Line") and leap from the second over the third. The record jump belongs to Austrian skier Michael Walchhofer who leaped 88 meters reaching a height of 4-5 meters in 2003.


Ciaslat with its corrugated ripples and bumps is where the race is often decided. In this technically very demanding section of the course racers face overall 17 different ripples.


Skiers will take the Nucia jump into the final schuss following the exit from Ciaslat.


The jump owes its name to the new tunnel that runs below the Final schuss and is part of the new street by-passing St.Christina which was opened in 2009.
