24th Südtirol Gardenissima: World's longest Giant Slalom
The longest giant slalom race in the world extends from the Seceda pastures six kilometres downhill to Col Raiser. Anybody can enter as long as they can present a medical certificate and a FIS membership card or third party insurance. The large number of participants (650) is evidence that skiing conditions in Val Gardena are excellent until spring. Competitors in this giant slalom event include numerous national and international ski athletes as Isolde Kostner, Peter Runggaldier, Ilka Stuhec, Marc Girardelli and many others.
