Here is How it is Going to Happen—Day-By-Day
All housing arrangements are available for you in two different hotels in Moena.  Each one is situated less than 700 meters from the race start, which will occur on Sunday morning.  You can either walk there or ski there in a couple of minutes.  One hotel, the Stella Alpina, is offering you the possibility of staying from Sunday to Sunday, or a total of seven days starting January 22nd.  And, what is best, is that you pay the same price!  Obviously, with every inscription, we guarantee you a starting place.  You will have a racing number.

Sunday through Wedneday, January 22 to 25, 2017 (applies to Stella Alpina only)
There is a special program for those of you who want to stay these extra days.  It starts on Sunday, January 22, and goes through Wednesday, January 25.  As mentioned above, this is only at the Stella Alpina Hotel.  You will be able to discover the valley and its surroundings.  (There are two Nordic ski areas in San Pelegrino and there is the Lavazze Col that is situated only 20 minutes away by car.)  These areas are groomed for both classic and skate skiing.  While you are exploring these areas, you will have the comfort and excellent cuisine of the hotel awaiting your return.

You can come any way you want to Moena. In the late evening, we will all get to know each other over cocktails and snacks. I will explain everything to you so you won’t be in the dark about the racing conditions or the race itself.

This day is going to start with a hearty breakfast at the hotel. Then I will take you to the departure area in the stadium at Canazei. You will discover not only the level of difficulty of parts of the course, but you will also want to try different kick waxes. Then I will take you to have a small lunch in one of the numerous restaurants in the village before we go back to our hotel via the race course tracks. At the end of the afternoon, you can either go to the wellness center or take your time exploring Moena village. Finally, dinner that evening followed by a meeting during which I will explain what is going to happen the next day.

Today we will ski in the direction of Molina, which is the lowest point on the race course. Then we will have lunch somewhere along the race course and finally we will come back by bus all the way to the hotel. During the afternoon you will be able to wax your skis again, go to the wellness center, and visit Moena. Dinner in the evening with yet another meeting about tomorrow.

You can do whatever you want, but I suggest some short training directly from the hotel before you go pick up your numbered bibs at Cavalese. You should now think about seriously waxing your skis. If you want a professional to do that, you can pay for waxing, but you have to make a reservation. Just ask me. Sometime during dinner or afterwards, I will let you know how the actual race day is going to happen. Now is the time to eat and eat lots.

Sunday, January 29, 2017—At Last Race Day
You will start the 70 kilometer race at 8:15 in the morning. You are responsible for getting to the starting stadium. There will be bus transfers after you finish in Cavalese. The small buses run every 30 minutes and they stop in every village. You can still use the wellness center if you want to take a shower after the race. Then it is time to leave and you are on your own.
