Bormio is ready for the Ski World Cup 2020/2021

The road begins towards the races on 28 and 29 December

Date:12.10.2020

It may be because of the recent white powder that dusted the tip of the mountains of Alta Valtellina, or because of the smoke that curls upwards from the chimneys of the houses, but in Bormio we are starting to feel the essence of winter. And in Bormio there is no winter season without the Alpine Ski World Cup.

Dear ski enthusiasts, as per tradition, the classic men's downhill race and the super-G race of the Ski World Cup are confirmed for December 28 and 29.

The Bormio ski track has always been the stage for spectacular feats. The greatest athletes of fast disciplines have been challenged on the Stelvio slope, and those who triumphed on it are, not surprisingly, some of the best skiers in the world.

Even today, 25 years later, we all remember the accomplishments of Alberto Tomba on March 18, 1995. After a glorious season, the Italian athlete won the overall World Cup, making all his 40,000 fans - who came to support him on the Stelvio track - explode with joy. That was an unforgettable day, marked in bold on the Italian ski history book. Thousands of people waited at the parterre and on the sides of the slope for Tomba to raise the coveted crystal ball to the sky. Bormio was the perfect setting for crowning the greatest alpine skier of technical disciplines that Italy had ever had.

Today, the undisputed king of the Stelvio slope is Dominik Paris, known as “Domme”. Domme won his first victory in the Ski World Cup circuit on the Stelvio slope in 2012. Since then, he stands unbeaten with its impeccable lines and its power, dominating the Stelvio from its first to its last turn and sending the public into a frenzy. Dominik has triumphed 6 times on “her majesty the Stelvio”, with 5 victories in downhill and 1 in superG. For all these victories, he was nominated "honorary citizen of Bormio" last year.

In everyone's imagination, the races in Bormio are like a classic Christmas film: they are part of our Christmas tradition. They are a staple like the “panettone”, “pandoro'' and New Year's toast. The races of the Ski World Cup create the perfect atmosphere that engages everyone, young and old, passionate skiers and non. 

Despite the particular period we are experiencing, and the safety measures that will be applied before, during and after the races, Bormio has begun the countdown. 

Therefore, with the agenda in hand, we begin to enjoy the winter weather because, in just a couple of month’s time, we can finally get back on the Stelvio slope and watch that starting gate slam open. 

Safety rules:

The men's downhill and super-G races scheduled for 28 and 29 December are confirmed.

As already seen in other sporting events, the races in Bormio will be behind closed doors. Therefore, fans of the Ski World Cup will be able to follow the action from live TVs and broadcasts but not from the parterre.

Traditional side events, such as the drawing of bibs in Piazza del Kuérc and the tasting of typical products, will also be cancelled.
