K16 SKYRACE

TRACK DESCRIPTION

Exploring paths far and wide and equipped with much experience in organizing mountain competitions, we let ourselves be fascinated by the possibility of offering something new. A race along the ski slopes of the most famous resort in the south of the Alps and from where great ski champions such as Michela Figini and Doris De Agostini set off to conquer the world. For those who want to enjoy the day more quietly, we also have the opportunity to follow an easier and non-competitive path, suitable for family or four-legged friends.

The departure from Airolo Valbianca cable car station allows everyone to easily reach this unique location by public transport or private vehicles; for those staying in the area for longer, there are ample options for hotels and accommodation facilities. The race ends at the same venue and a free ticket will allow you to reach Pesciüm, a renowned ski resort that also offers many alternative activities in winter, where you can eat and attend the award ceremony before returning to the valley by cable car (or by foot) quickly and safely. The finish area is also easily accessible to non-runners who would like to go up to assist their loved ones or watch the arrivals and cheer on the runners.
