Cascata is the first Ski Classics Iconic Climb Season XV

The Iconic Climbs give some extra spark to the most challenging climbs in Ski Classics. For Season XV, there will be four Iconic Climbs. The first is Cascata, the last hill up to Cavalese in Marcialonga.

The Iconic Climb, launched during Season XIV, is a category in the Ski Classics points table. The category is used for the most iconic climbs of Ski Classics

The idea for the Iconic Climb category is that all climbs differ; some are tougher, and some have more history behind them. Ski Classics wants to enhance the interest around the climbs and reward the strongest athletes slightly more. 

The Iconic Climb points are 50% higher than a Category 1 Climb. Winners get 45 instead of 30 points in the Climb competition. 

For Season XV, there will be four Iconic Climbs. First, it is up to Cascata, the last hill to Cavalese in Marcialonga. The second Iconic Climb is Raudfjellet, the first long hill in Birkebeinerrennet.

The third is the Orta climb in Reistadløpet, and last but not least is the new Iconic Climb for Season XV, the Magdaskaret climb, in Summit 2 Senja. 

ICONIC CLIMBS SEASON XV

Event: Marcialonga – Ski Classics Pro Tour Event 7

  • Date: January 28, 2024
  • Climb: Cascata, from 830 to 990m above sea level, is 2 kilometers long, and the most challenging thing is that it starts after 68 kilometers.

Event: Birkebeinerrennet – Ski Classics Pro Tour Event 12 

  • Date: March 16, 2024
  • Climb: Raudfjellet, from 300 to 880m above sea level, 19 kilometers long. It’s not the steepest climb, but it is often very high-paced already from the start.

Event: Reistadløpet – Ski Classics Pro Tour Event 13

  • Date: April 6, 2024
  • Climb: Orta, from 136 to 575m above sea level, 6 kilometers long, with many very steep sections and short flats in between, the main reason Reistadløpet has never been won without kick wax.

Event: Summit 2 Senja – Ski Classics Pro Tour Event 14

  • Date: April 7, 2024
  • Climb: Magdaskaret is the new Iconic Climb for Season XV. Last season, the climb was decisive at the Season XIV Grand Finale, and this year promises the same excitement. 

The Season XV of Ski Classics Pro Tour consists of 15 events on 11 event weekends in 6 different countries. The season started in Bad Gastein, Austria, on December 9, 2023, and will end in Norway with the 100km Ski Classics Grand Finale Janteloppet on April 13, 2024.

Next up is Marcialonga in Italy on January 28, 2024. The event marks the seventh Ski Classics Pro Tour stage and the first Grand Classics event of Season XV.
