Skimountaineering: La Sportiva presents you Epic Ski Tour 2017 4ALL

Four days of ski mountaineering in Trentino, Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa, with three races from 13th - 15th January 2017

Ski touring is developing more and more in recent seasons, with prominent, extremely technical events, simple excursions and crowded “nocturnal skiing” on the slopes.
But starting next season, ski mountaineering changes pace as it is time to welcome La Sportiva EPIC Ski Tour 4All.

A three-day event on the slopes of Trentino, in Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa, that introduces a totally “new way” of appreciating and approaching modern ski mountaineering.
The project is simple: to create a sports event for all ski mountaineering enthusiasts, dedicated both to world champions and amateurs alike, with a 46.000 euro jackpot, for the winner.

On Friday night there will be a nocturnal race in the Cermis, with half of the race on the slopes and half off-piste, on Saturday 14th January, participants get ready for an uphill climb in Passo San Pellegrino and on Sunday 15th January the last day of the event will be spent in Passo Pordoi.

La Sportiva EPIC Ski Tour is not only a sports competition, more a “happening”. The event will take place during the weekend following the Tour de Ski, with base in Palafiemme di Cavalese where there will be race desks, the “village” and all related events.

Registration for the 2017 edition opened April 1st but it is also possible to register online at To take part in the event participants need to present a medical sport certificate and pay the enrolment fee of 160 euro for the 3 races which also includes a special Combo helmet which has a retail price of 139 euro certified to both EN 12492 and EN 1007 class B, and that must be worn during the “la Sportiva Epic Ski Tour” competitions.

The site is already packed with information and details about the event and will be uploaded daily. If the 2016 ski mountaineering season is drawing to a close then the 2017 edition starts with an unbeatable proposal.
