The US SKI TEAM is arriving to the skiarea Alpe Cimbra in Trentino.

09.11.2018 - It is official; Alpe Cimbra ski area – Folgaria, Lavarone – is the new training centre of the male US SKI TEAM for the next 4 years. Theslopes Salizzona and Agonistica, the most technical of the ski area, will turn into their training centre.

The decision of the US Ski team is no coincidence. In the last couple of years, many World Cup teams trained here. The technical features of these slopes coupled with the optimal conditions of the terrain resulting from the professional grooming techniques of the ski lift company led to spread the popularity of the ski area as one the best destination for training purposes. Michael Rech, the President of the tourist office Alpe Cimbra, underlines that “hosting significant skiing international events – like the European Cup races and the Alpe Cimbra Fis Children Cup (former Mickey Mouse Trophy) – and hosting the training of important World Cup ski teams like – Italy, Austria and Sweden – has improved our awareness about what the destination needs to offer to the top athletes. In this sense our efficiency has increased.

​Racing is in the DNA of the Alpe Cimbra ski area, the past events led the ski area to set high expectations for the future. The aim is to become a preferred destination among the popular ski areas”. The ski area is ready to face new challenges and hosting the winter training of the US SKI TEAM is one of this. Guaranteeing optimal training conditions for the US Team and fostering a cozy and friendly atmosphere for the athletes and the staff are our goal…we want them to be at home”.

“The US Men’s Ski Team is excited to begin the new partnership with Folgaria and Trentino. There is a great energy for ski racing in the Trentino and we want our athletes to be there. Folgaria is a perfect location to find quality training and a relaxing atmosphere when we are not competing”
