The snow lights up the desire of cross-country in Cogne

Over 700 Masters already enrolled for the March World Cup

After the amazing edition of the World Cup, the little community of Cogne never stopped talking about cross country. Now that the snow has arrived and the slopes are about to open, the passion for narrow skis is rekindled. Within the Gran Paradiso National Park, ideal and very varied cross-country tracks has been created, but Cogne is also a perfect territory for walking and simply mountain biking in summer and downhill skiing in winter.

Next March, the small ski resort of Aosta Valley will once again be a major performer in sport events. Hundreds and hundreds of Masters are expected for the Masters World Cup. This annual event will combine sport, traditions, guided tours and food and wine. In a few words: healthy competition, combined with fun. The goal of Cogne is to leave an unforgettable memory to the many participants who have already registered for the competitions scheduled from 5 to 14 March 2020.

Registrations will close on February 15th, but by now over 700 registrations have arrived from the various Federations all over the world. In Cogne, the event secretariat and tourist consortium have been working for months to guarantee beds and a high-impact collateral cultural program. Particularly appealing will be the itinerant dinner being studied to close the event.

Before thinking of the World Masters, Cogne will moreover organize the MarciaGranParadiso, a great classic at the end of January, beginning of February. The weekend of 31 January and 1 and 2 February 2020, with skating appointment, the MiniMarcia reserved for children and the MarciaGranParadiso in classic style are both to be marked on your calendar. The Marcia is undoubtedly an event that since 2016 has become part of the Euroloppet international circuit.

From Saturday, the slopes developing along and across the Sant’Orso field will be prepared and open to the public. Ready and set up also for the Masters who would like to start preparing both competitions in Aosta Valley. They will be training on the same tracks that welcomed, last February,  the champions of the narrow skis and that brought Italy in triumph with the historic double in the sprint signed Federico Pellegrino and Francesco De Fabiani
