The winter season has begun and our athletes are already in action. Energy and concentration are fundamental to face all the challenges ahead of them.

So, which competitions will our athletes be competing in during the 2019/20 winter season and where will the competitions take place? If the race is held in a location nearby, Italian fans will be present to support the athletes live.

Let’s take a closer look at the dates you cannot miss.


Karoline Pichler

Born in Deutschnofen in 1994, her speciality is the giant slalom. However, Karoline also delivers good performances in speed events.

This season she will be one of the most representative polyvalent athletes of the women’s alpine ski team at the World Cup. We will be able to see her in action and cheer for her on Monday 27 January in Kronplatz, where the women’s giant slalom will take place on the ERTA slope. Let’s go Karo!
