You too could ski on the slopes where the 1956 Winter Olympics took place, like the Olympia delle Tofane, where the Men's Downhill was raced, the Vitelli di Faloria piste, venue for the Men's and Women's Giant Slalom, and the “A” piste in Col Drusciè, also on the Tofana massif, site of the Women's Special Slalom all still today among the Queen of the Dolomite's most wonderful slopes.
The Olympia delle Tofane piste in Cortina d'Ampezzo hosts the Women's Downhill event of the Alpine Skiing World Cup. To re-live the emotions of the rock faces and panoramas for which this piste is famous, you need to take the Schuss and then the Stratofana slopes, cross the Labirinti piste, and then enter the Olympia piste at Rumerlo. These slopes are recommended for expert skiers.
The World Championships in Cortina are preceded by those of St. Moritz in 2017 and Are, in Sweden, in 2019, and take place one year before the Beijing Winter Olympics.
The Championships will involve 14 days of races, with more than 600 athletes from 70 countries ready to challenge one another on the slopes of Cortina d’Ampezzo, where ski history has been made, plus hundreds of collateral events for thousands of tourists and competitors.
