The Ski World Cup in Alta Badia has now been organized for more than thirty years thanks to the effort of the Organizing Committee with the help of many voluntaries, who always arrange three days of sports, events and fun.

A major event such as the Ski World Cup requires a long and careful preparation. The Organizing Committee starts working already months before the event itself, organizing and planning all technical, organizational and logistic aspects. During the last weeks before the event the workload becomes heavier and during the last days before the race there is the slope to be prepared, athletes to be welcomed and the races and the other arranged events to be supervised.

Collaboration, team work, effort and passion are the most important things when organizing such a big event, in order to entertain every year thousands of ski fans.
