ALTA BADIA LET’S ROCK AND HAVE FUN! SPORTS, MUSIC, ADRENALINE AND FUN PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE DURING THE SKI WORLD CUP WEEKEND FROM 17TH TO 19TH DECEMBER 2016
Milan/La Villa, November 2016 – Enjoy the long weekend before Christmas in Alta Badia not only to feel the emotions of the Ski World Cup, but also to ski on perfectly prepared slopes, to have fun at the après-ski parties, to test the newest and most prestigious ski equipment and to taste the dishes of renowned chefs. This year, you cannot miss the concert of the patroness of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup Alta Badia: Tina Maze, Olympic athlete and rock star, who will perform with her band on Sunday 18th December. For the overnight stay, there is an accommodation package including two nights in a double room with breakfast, the ticket Guest House Plus, which gives access to the races on Sunday and Monday and a random Ski World Cup gadget starting from €160 per person.
The great ski performance: two races on the Gran Risa
10,000 metres of safety net, 500 slalom poles, 150 people with shovels and rakes and 200 ski instructors and firefighters: this and more will be necessary for the men’s giant slalom race on Sunday 18th December on the legendary Gran Risa – a steep slope, which is technically perfect because of its challenging inclinations of the ground. The fans can support their idols, such as Marcel Hirscher, Ted Ligety and Andre Myhrer, from the stands in the finish area and see them on the big screen. The men’s parallel giant slalom race on Monday 19th December at night will be even more exciting, if that is possible: the race consists of two runs in a parallel race mode. Always two athletes will be competing in a thrilling speed race, in which also technical knowledge is required, because they may nearly graze each other in some bends. As the race begins at 6 pm, the slope will be illuminated and the starry sky will add a unique atmosphere to the event.
Alta Badia, let’s rock! Fun, music and energy
It doesn’t matter if skiing or singing, she makes everything with a lot of passion and energy: Tina Maze, Olympic athlete and rock star is the patroness of the Ski World Cup in Alta Badia. Together with her band “Tina Maze & The Rockers”, the Slovenian athlete, who has risen in rankings with the song “My way is my decision”, will perform in a live concert* on Saturday 18th December in La Villa, starting from 5 pm. Moreover, she will award the best athletes of the giant slalom race on Sunday 18th December and be the forerunner for the giant parallel slalom on Monday evening. During the World Cup weekend, you can have fun and enjoy good music not only in the finish area but also during the official ceremonies. In the evening, there are a lot of possibilities to have fun: on Saturday 17th December at the World Cup Party in the finish area, on Sunday 18th December at L’Murin in Corvara and on Monday 19th December, for the grand finale, at the “World Cup Pub”, an event organized in the finish area after the parallel giant slalom race in collaboration with L’Murin, Red Bull and Forst beer, with DJ Fiore and the GoGo Girls, from 8 pm to 1am.
