Race Info

On 23 March 2024, the Südtirol Gardenissima, the longest and most famous giant slalom in the world with six kilometres, will once again attract ski fans from all over the world to Val Gardena.

Every year the Südtirol Gardenissima is held in spring at the end of the winter season. The start of the South Tyrol Gardenissima is on the mountain Seceda in 2518 m. and runs over 6 km down to the finish at the valley station of the cable car Col Raiser in Selva Val Gardena at 1485 m. The athletes overcome a difference in altitude of 1033 m. There are 115 gates marked out along the route. The start takes place in pairs, divided into categories. The route runs parallel for the first few kilometres and then joins to form a single route.

The number of participants is limited to 700. Since the participation is open to all and both well-known professionals from the FIS Ski World Cup and amateurs of all ages participate, the race offers a unique opportunity to compete with the best. Prizes will be awarded in all categories. For all participants a starting package is waiting.

There is also a special category for ski legends, in which every year former World Cup athletes and ski icons take part.

Group ranking

If several participants want to start in the group ranking (Team, Ski & Fan Club), they must indicate the same team in the registration form.
The group ranking is a single ranking between teams, Ski and Fan Clubs. The 5 fastest times will be counted together.

Family ranking

2 persons from the same family. The best time of an adult and the best time of a kid (Gardenissiam Kids) will be used for the ranking.
For the times of the Super-Baby category (due to the shortened course) 34 seconds will be added for the ranking.
