Dear athletes

The fully story or the Südtirol Gardenissima can ojnce again be told. It is a story that is rewritten every year and which already consists of 20 chapters. It all started as very small event in 1997 which grew into a highly popular festival and became more than just a battle over fractions of seconds. There are always multiple champions - the organising committee, the crowds of spectators, the 650 participants and of course the winners on the day: Massimiliano Blardone in the men's and Ilka Stuhec in the women's race.

Partnership “Südtirol Gardenissima – Lorpen” extended

We have some great news for you! During the world’s leading trade fair “Outdoor” in Friedrichshafen (Germany) the director of “Val Gardena-Gröden Marketing” Günther Pitscheider and the marketing director of “Lorpen” Imanol Munoz together with Franco Raffaelli (importer for Italy) extended the cooperation for the world’s longest giant slalom for further three years.


A six-kilometre-plus thank you!

Now that the world’s longest giant slalom is behind us, it’s time to thank everyone involved and bid each other a fond farewell until next time. Speaking of which: the 2017 edition of the Südtirol Gardenissima has already been pencilled in for April 1st 2017 …and that’s no joke!
