The ski races on the Gran Risa have made their way into the hearts of skiers since 1985. The event has grown year on year since then and has become an unmissable appointment for thousands of fans to watch live or on television.
In December the world's best skiers will again compete in two giant slaloms on the Gran Risa, a slope considered one of the most beautiful in the Ski World Cup. The races are valid for the 2021 Alpine Ski World Cup.
The dates are set for Sunday 19 and Monday 20 December 2021.
The Italian skiing legend Alberto Tomba celebrated 4 victories on the Gran Risa.
