Stelvio: World Cup Course

The start line is at an elevation of 2,255 metres, above the La Rocca jump. The run is almost 3,230 metres long with an elevation change of 986 metres. It plummets dramatically from the start with the first challenging turns leading into the La Rocca jump, where the pine and larch forest begins.

Then it’s straight into the Canalino Sertorelli, a 300-metre diagonal where the skiers pick up pace considerably. After the 200-metre Fontana Lunga turn the skiers head into the treacherous Ermellini turns and the Carcentina, one the most spectacular parts of the course, which has proven decisive in many previous World Cups.

After the Carcentina diagonal the skiers have 100 metres on the Ciuk flats (1,638 m a.s.l.) before the long San Pietro jump, where the competitors reach their highest speeds. This is the steepest section of the course with a maximum gradient of 60%. The flat stretch after San Pietro leads into the last wall, which drops dramatically and remains steep for a good 200 metres. The skiers reach speeds of over 100 km/h as they approach the last jump and hurtle under the finish banner in Bormio (1,245 m a.s.l.).
