Carezza will host World Cup races for the third time in a row since its debut in 2011.

On Friday, Dec 13, the season's first parallel giant slalom will be staged with the first parallel slalom of this World Cup winter following one day later.

And it seems that besides the Local Organisers also Mother Nature is looking forward to the opening of the Alpine Snowboarding World Cup.

Over the past weeks, it has kept snowing, with the temperatures dropped just low enough to enable the slope crew to prepare huge piles of artificial snow.

With about one week to go until the races, everything is set in Carezza.

“The race hill preparations are done. Everything is ready. The slope is in perfect condition. We have never been this far so early in the past seasons,” said Chief of Competition Georg Eisath, who is looking forward to the competition – just like the home town riders from South Tyrol Roland Fischnaller, Aaron March and Christoph Mick.

“We are motivated and are hoping for some good results,” said Fischnaller, who brought home Silver and Bronze from the last World Championships.

“We are excited that the World Cup kicks off, luckily on home soil with two races.”
