A lot of skiers expected during the first weekend of the winter season.
The novelty of the Campiglio Dolomiti ski area for the 2018-19 winter season makes the skiing experience more exciting and comfortable. Here what's going on in the biggest ski area of Trentino region:
The chairlift is the link between Prà Rodont area and Malga Cioca, the best place in Pinzolo skiing offer for beginners and kids. The chairlift serves easy (blue) slopes and it is the link between the beginner area and the intermediate pistes.
Two new stations will replace the oldest and the new replacement will avoid a difficult gradient for the beginners.
With these improvements, Pinzolo confirms itself as a family-friend resort, validating its policy as first "Alta Val Rendena Family District".
It is the hallmark of excellence, a leader trademark in sport and style. A sport that was born out of need, becoming over time the symbol of speed, technique, myth. A history that was born and grown together with one of the most trendy resort of the Alps, Madonna di Campiglio, and one of the most exciting ski race of the world cup skiers and their entourages, the 3Tre.
And this year, from the trunks of memories, we've dusted off and taken the symbol of who, from the mid-'90s, was in the lead in the legendary ski race.
It is the Fulmine sweater, the history weaving with the myth in the finest yarn by Falconeri, that this year will wear again the winner of the 3Tre Madonna di Campiglio - Audi FIS Ski World Cup. A unique item of clothing that bring with it the Italian tradition and the joy of a success.
Leaf through the photogallery, watch the champions of the past that wore the Fulmine sweater and read here a little of history of the legendary 3Tre.
Class of 1950, at that time the 3Tre took place still in Trentino, and consisted of the 3 classical ski disciplines:
The first of the three races was the downhill: the winner got the Yellow sweater with the lightning, symbol of speed. The yellow color has been represented the fastest and the more reckless skier of 3Tre for many years.
During the years, all the greatest ski champions have been wearing the Fulmine sweater.
The tradition of the Fulmine sweater has been lessening in the end of the 1960s, for at least two reasons: the change of the type of the event and the arrival of the new ski World Cup (founded in 1967), with new regulations.
Of this tradition, only a memory remained for decades.
In 2018 the 3Tre and the Tourism Board, in partnership with the famous Italian brand of cashmere and natural yarns Falconeri, bring to life again the Fulmine sweater, awarding it to the winner of the race, with a gesture that wants to be a meeting point between past and future and an undisputed symbol of one of the most famous ski race.
