World Ski mountaineering Championships 2017 Alpago Piancavallo

Italy has won the role of host and organiser thanks to the Dolomiti Ski-Alp Dolomiti Ski Club and the Transcavallo Committee, which have been awarded with the organisation, on the Alpago mountains, of the World Ski mountaineering Championships that will take place from 23 February to March 2 on the snows of Tambre and Piancavallo in the individual and team (pairs) disciplines, vertical, sprint and relay.
Ski mountaineering, which has recently become an Olympic discipline, reflects the mountain life, fatigue and sweat in the ascent, freedom and oblivion when reaching a summit combined with the joy and pleasure of skiing from up there.

Ski mountaineering has been growing for some years, regarding both the number of practitioners and the technical aspect. This fascinating discipline is mainly experienced in two ways: the first is the traditional and classic ski mountaineering, the mountain trip in search of uncontaminated spaces, the second is the competitive ski mountaineering. Both, however, are driven by passion for the mountains and it is not always easy to understand where one starts and the other ends. In addition to adequate physical preparation, ski mountaineering requires technical knowledge and a lot of experience since the "tracks" to follow in order to cross the finish line run in a severe environment, with exposed stretches at high altitudes and of course enjoying beautiful landscapes like in Alpago.

The morphology of the mountains in the Upper Alpago in fact make that area unique for the practice of ski mountaineering, in particular on the Monte Cavallo range, which continues to host prestigious events.  After years of hard work, this land has managed to gain a prominent place in the world of ski mountaineering competitions. In 2004, it was home to the first trial of the first edition of the Ski Mountaineering World Cup. In 2009, it hosted the European Championships, while in 2011 and 2016 the Ski Mountaineering World Cup returned.

The province of Belluno, after the wonderful experience of the 2016 World Cup, is once again a point of reference for the organisation of the event, which represents not only a sporting moment, but also a tourist opportunity for the entire territory.
