Willi Kastlunger – Honorary President Al Plan Events
“So, also the fifth race was a great success! The atmosphere was almost family-like, we definitely missed the cheering audience of Plan de Corones, but all went well. The athletes managed to thrill us with excellent skiing performances, the few and lucky spectators allowed to attend the race really enjoyed it. A big thank you to everybody who did their very best to make this possible and guaranteed a memorable event.”
Countdown to the event
This year Kronplatz has the honor of being the venue for a total of two women's giant slaloms: On January 24 and 25, 2023, the Ski World Cup on the Erta slope goes into the next round! The world's best female ski racers will show their skills on the challenging Erta and give everything to grab the hard-fought Kronplatz crown.
The Erta slope is quite impressive - with a length of 1,325 m, a difference in altitude of 405 m and a maximum gradient of 61%, it demands the utmost skill and a large portion of courage from the participants. With an outstanding performance, Sweden's Sara Hector managed to take the winning title last year.
