On Saturday, December 17, the Ski Classics Pro Tour continues with the third event in Season XIV, La Venosta Criterium, a 36km long-distance race in Val Venosta, Italy.

La Venosta Criterium

The event is a mass-start race with several laps and classic technique. This spectacular race challenges the Pro Tour skiers to the maximum on a demanding course at high altitude in the charming Vallelunga Valley. 

The course starts in Melago, where the skiers circle in loops around the highest point at 1900 meters above sea level – Melago Alm, where the race also finishes. 

Melago holds a Sprint checkpoint at 6km and two Climb checkpoints at 20km and 28km, where points can be collected for the Sprint and Climb Competitions, respectively.

Fascinating Valley In The South Tyrol 

Situated close to the borders of Switzerland and Austria, the valley has always offered cross-country skiing tracks and good snow conditions already in early December, giving the Pro Teams an excellent opportunity to get some early season race on snow.

La Venosta is a hidden jewel and offers breathtaking sceneries and South Tyrolian nature at its best. The atmosphere in the area is captive, and before the holiday break, skiers and visitors can check out the surrounding idyllic small towns and local seasonal markets as the event takes place. La Venosta is a perfect place to let the Christmas spirit soak in.
