Nastro Azzurro ski race - Alpe di Siusi

This traditional ski competition was for the first time organised after World War II.

The "Nastro Azzurro dell'Alpe di Siusi" (Blue Riband of the Alpe di Siusi) ski race is a combined ski competition of downhill and slalom, organised for the first time in 1947 by some young men in order to encourage winter tourism again after World War II. The race got its name from a competition of luxury liners - the "Blue Riband" was the price for the fastest Atlantic crossing. The ski competition on the Alpe di Siusi was held for the last time in 1958.

On the occasion of the Nostalgic Weeks on the Alpe di Siusi, the "Nastro Azzurro" was relaunched in 2000. Since then, it has been organised every year at the end of the winter and around the start of spring. The rules are still the old ones and the downhill race is still held on the Punta d'Oro slope. The event is supported by a varied entertainment programme.
