3Tre in the thick of the FISI celebrations for the anniversary of the World’s main circuit, of which is part since the first edition
From the dreams of some fantastic visionaries to the greatest realities of World Alpine Ski, and role model for plenty of other circuits in all the major individual sports. The FIS World Cup turns 50 in the 2016/2017 season, and the Italian Winter Sports Federation is ready to celebrate it on Saturday October 29th at Skipass, the International Winter Sports Exposition taking place in Modena from October 29th to November 1st.
In the Main Event Area of Skipass, from 20.00, it will be a night full of charm and memories: authentic memories and movies from the past will lead through the history of the World Cup, told by the organizing committee that contributed to it, at the presence of memorable former champion Deborah Compagnoni and FIS Secretary General Sarah Lewis.
And when it comes to the history of ski, 3Tre is always in the thick of the discussion. The Madonna di Campiglio night slalom, whose 2016 edition will once again be raced on December 22nd, is one of the only five current World Cup stages to have been part of the original calendar of 66/67, the others being Vail (Colorado, USA), Kitzbuhel (Austria), Adelboden e Wengen (Switzerland). The first World Cup race on the Canalone Miramonti slope was won by French Guy Perillat on February 5th, 1967.
With the contribution of 3Tre Committee’s historical expert Paolo Luconi Bisti, 3Tre provided some exclusive materials: special contents containing all the fascination of a unique path. Representing 3Tre on the night will be President Lorenzo Conci and former athlete Ivo Mahlknecht, who took part in the first World Cup season back in 1966/67.
