the fact that Val Gardena is the “Valley of sport welcoming athletes from all over the world” is well known but this year the period from 14 to 22 December 2018 is going to be a really incredible one.
Apart from the Mens Ski World Cup, which for years now has always had a race on the wonderful Saslong slope, this year the mens speed merchants will be racing on 14 and 15 December 2018, the Ladies Word Cup races which were originally scheduled for Val d'Isère) will take place in Val Gardena on 18 and 19 December 2018.
The series of races make for a vitally important and exciting week for the valley. One should know that the world’s top skiers have been coming to Val Gardena since 1970, the year when the Alpine World Championships were held here. On 18 and 19 December there will be a Downhill and a Super G on Saslong.
Taking part in races will be Nicole Delago, she recently achieving fifth place in the final race at Lake Louise (CAN). Nicole is the star of the Val Gardena youth team.
Completing this period of wonderful sport, an effort which only the incredible strength of the Val Gardena organisational machine would be able to perform, is the Raiffeisen ITF Woman Val Gardena Südtirol, it taking place from 15 to 22 December, and being an International Ladies tennis tournament. It is the 16th year it is being held at Ortisei. Also this year the prizemoney will amount to 15.000 $, and among the athletes competing will be local girl Verena Hofer; another sporting occasion which is not to be missed!
- Fascination Dolomites
First, there was the ocean. Better said, the mother of all oceans, the Tethys Ocean, a gargantuan bay to the west of the Pangea supercontinent whose borders make up today’s modern Asia, Europe, Africa, and Australia. The Dolomites are a spectacular sight to behold today, and the same applies to their origin story. This mountainous landscape was recognised by UNESCO in 2009 as one of the most imposing World Natural Heritage Sites in the world.

- A doorway to other cultures
Tyrol’ is a word of Ladin origin. Its root derives from the word ‘troi’, meaning ‘path’. It’s an ancient language, and the whole Ladin culture in the Dolomites is just as ancient: a good 2,000 years old, to be precise. Religious rituals, rural festivities and processions, music and songs changed more than once over the course of the centuries. Even storytelling, mainly of Dolomite legends, and art aren’t the same as they once were, constantly adapting to the periods they were in.
The Romans influenced the Ladin language and the soon-tofollow Christian period moulded local religious traditions. Over the course of the centuries, the Ladins were also influenced by the German and Italian culture. Yet they’ve always remained true to their spirit. And the best thing is they’re proud to share their cultural heritage with their guests.
