On Saturday, April 2nd, 2016, Marmolada will host “La Sbriseda”, a vintage style event that follows in the tracks of Austrian Lieutenant Richard Löschner, who in 1913 was the first person to complete a descent on Norwegian skis of the Northern face of the Queen of the Dolomites, a UNESCO Natural World Heritage.
It all starts at 8:30 in the square in front of the Marmolada #MoveToTheTop funicular lift at Malga Ciapèla. Ride up to Punta Rocca to come down the mountain in period costumes, on wooden skis with leather boots rigorously predating 1989. Ski along the La Bellunese slope, the longest run in all of Dolomiti Superski, offering 12 km of pure thrills for an altitude difference of 1823 meters and breath-taking views, suspended between rocks and sky.
At 10:00 there will be a visit to the Museum of the Great War è (Museo Marmolada Grande Guerra 3000 m) at the Serauta funicular station. Then at 11:30 there will be a pit-stop at Osteria Rilancio. Afterward there will be lunch at Rifugio Padon around 1:00 p.m., with polenta and pastin. At 3:00 p.m. there will be the Vintage Ski Competition, again on the Bellunese, from the 3265 metres at Punta Rocca to the 1450 metres at Malga Ciapela.
During the descent, skiers can stop in the various lodges they come across along the slopes for snacks featuring local products. After the competition there will be a Vintage Après Ski event with award ceremony at Rifugio Tabìà.
Registration costs € 30.00 and includes ski-pass, lunch and gadgets.
