With the seventh consecutive year of hosting high quality races, you cannot imagine an Alpine Snowboard World Cup tour without the tradition-rich resort of Carezza.
Especially as the the parallel event (no matter if parallel slalom or parallel giant slalom) staged on the Pra di Tori slope right next to the famous Passo di Costalunga has served as perfect kick off of the season for many years now.
In the 2017-18 season, the South Tyrolean family-friendly ski resort will play host to a parallel giant slalom on Dec. 14, 2017, once again providing some thrilling head-to-head duels in front of a stellar crowd.
