The Cross-Country stadium is situated approx. 5 km east of Cavalese, the main city of Val di Fiemme. A large number of well-prepared skiing tracks, which could also be prepared with artificial snow, are located nearby.
The capacity of the stadium is about 8.000 spectators and on the track approx. 20.000 can follow the competitions. The Lago di Tesero stadium was used for the FIS Nordic Ski World Championships in 1991 and 2003. Beside there, tourists have the possibility of going Cross-Country Skiing at Passo Lavazé, a center with more than 50 km of tracks at an altitude of 1.600 to 1.800 m.
Every January, Cross-Country skiers can take part in the famous ski marathon, "Marcialonga," which starts in Moena and reaches Canazei in Val di Fassa, and then returns to Val di Fiemme while passing by many villages near Cavalese.
