Test village and slopes

The village is located at the base of the Prà di Tori slope, near the upper station of the "Hubertus" cable car, and offers three options for testing:

  • The "Direttissima", classified as a "black" slope, features two changes in gradient, adequate width, and a length of approximately 1,100 meters.
  • The "Semi Diretta" variant, 1,200 meters long, avoids the first part of the slope (on the right, descending) and offers a moderate gradient. 
  • The "Latemarwiesen" variant (on the left, descending) is classified as a "red" slope and winds through the forest for about 1,700 meters.

 Additional important information:

  • All three variants have a vertical drop of 294 meters.
  • There will also be an ascent route on the slope side to test ski touring materials 
  • The top of the slope is easily accessible via a modern chairlift, transporting up to 2,000 people per hour. The ascent takes approximately 4 minutes.
  • The north-facing exposure ensures the best snow quality throughout the season, and depending on weather conditions, there may be sun throughout the morning.

Logistics and transport

  • The parking dedicated to exhibiting companies is located at the bottom of the 'Prà di Tori' slope, from which, thanks to snowmobiles and snowcats, equipment will be transported to the village. 
  • The parking for visitors and the shuttle drop-off point, on the other hand, are located at the base of the 'Paolina' chairlift, adjacent to the departure point of the aforementioned 'Hubertus' cable car.
