THE ASIAGO PLATEAU, THE CAPITAL OF CROSS COUNTRY SKIING

Sci_fondo_sotto_Cima_CaldieraThe sports traditions go back to decades, especially skiing on the plateau, with numerous clubs, and associations (some were founded back in the 20s and 30s) and many Italian and world champions have been formed here and have made its name known throughout the world.
Among these champions we should remember the famous Guidina Dal Sasso, a leading cross country ski champion, and Fabrizio Tescari, among the best slalom racers who was Italian champion several times.
To satisfy the growing needs of the various sports groups and improve the tourist offer, the Plateau has been fitted with several modern plants and structures, which can house very high level sports events: for example the World Junior Nordic Ski Championships in 1987 and 1996, the Grass Ski Championships in 1993, which brought the name of the Asiago Plateau to the international sports world. In addition, in the last years Asiago has hosted the Cross country ski World Cup competitions and the Tour de Ski event at the Golf Arena


NORDIC SKIING
The Sette Comuni Plateau is formed in such a way that it is an enormous natural stadium for cross country skiing, and not by chance it is known as the “Capital of Nordic Skiing”, and one of the world temples for this sport.
There are seven organised centres with FISI approved slopes, which cover a total of 500 km.
The cross-country ski itineraries pass through large meadows and endless woods, where the lovers of this sport can travel through enchanted landscapes and admire the amazing panoramas immersed in the wonderful silence of pure oasis of peace. This incredible network of tracks is backed up by a series of bases and chalets, ski schools, equipment hire and many other services, and creates the most impressive, rich and varied offer for Nordic skiing in the world.
