The myths of half a century of skiing celebrated the Saslong

A few degrees less and snow would fall.
The World Cup jubilee celebrations in Val Gardena started under a knock-and-tearful rain and with the white flakes topped only on the summit of the Saslong.
To give that touch of originality the presence of two camels, almost a sign of gratitude to the animal from which they have named a series of jumps along the Saslong (“the camel’s goblins”).
The number one event of the 50th anniversary competition under the Fis brand in Val Gardena (there will be other events in the Cup of the Cup in December) has been a good involvement of the local population, many athletes of the past and new generations, somehow tied to the Saslong, the championship track that was initially snatched by a certain Karl Schranz, the most reputed Austrian who described it as a “highway”.
Scrolling through the anniversaries it turns out that the one between the Val Gardena and the great Alpine World Cup skiing was a love intended to last over the years.
In fact, the spark struck a significant day, that of Valentine’s Day in 1969.
On February 14, 48 years ago, Saslong won the Swiss Jean-Daniel Dätwyler. Why then 50 years if the first Cup is 1968? In 1967 the World Cup was started in Val Gardena and in the Ladin valley there were already some Fis A competitions organized in the Cup calendar.
Since 1972, then after the 1970s World Cup, the free fall of the Cup (since 2002 also the Supergigante) is always played in December, following Christmas.
Heart of the Saturday party was Santa Cristina where past champions and athletes gathered together with old-fashioned clothing and museum equipment. To frame, so many fans come to the event. A colorful party accompanied by the notes of various musical bands.
The parade brought the present along the Dursan Street from the Dosses-Maciaconi to the Iman Center, where a number of interesting panels had been set up that highlighted some of the most salient moments of the races in Val Gardena. At first, he could not miss the picture of pioneer Erich Demetz (he was then the longest president of the World Cup) to leave for the Fis 1967 conference in Beirut. Unpublished photos also on the 1970 World Cup panel, but above all the great interest in the parallel epic on Ronc di Ortisei between Gustav Thöni and Ingemar Stenmark, one of the most beautiful and exciting moments in the history of skiing.
To remember that event dated March 23, 1975 was the blue Helmuth Schmalzl that day was there. “The world cup was in three: Klammer, Stenmark and Gustavo. To take Klammer out of the dispute, I thought, who eliminated him after a few shifts, “recalled the former blue city who then had a past as responsible for Fis security.
Images also recalled the famous jump of Uli Spieß of December 15, 1980 that 100 kilometers from the second to the third camel’s hump jumped over 70 meters in length to a height of about 10 meters.
They could not miss the pictures of the companies “Crazy Canucks”, in particular that of Rob Boyd on 13 December 1986 and 12 of the following year. The first was remembered by Michael “Much” Mair, second only 14 cents from Canadian.
“When I was tired of winning with 39, Boyd fell and using a run that had accelerated in the meantime beat me,” reminded the ex-Pusteria. In some editions, there have been real surprises from those who came down with high numbers. On all the German Max Rauffer in 2004.
Then there was a picture of the reliefs brought to Giorgio Piantanida, a dramatic flyer on the descent of December 16, 1989.
A long parenthesis was devoted to Kristian Ghedina, present at the festivities with his red racing suit but above all with a embalmed roe deer in his hand, remembering that arrival of the 2004 descent when a roe deer went on the final schuss while passed “the Ghedo”. The Ampezzo jet on the Saslong won four times (1996, 1998, 1999 and 2001) as the Austrian Klammer.
Among them are Herbert Plank, the first and only South Tyrolean to win the free on Salsong. It was December 18, 1977 when the vipitenese left behind the Austrians Wirnsberg and Klammer. It was not present because of training in South America Werner Heel, who on December 19 won in Superg. On the stage for a greeting and a sign of recognition

If it’s bad, it costs less to ski

The classic day ticket for the ski resorts is going out of fashion and the stations are experimenting with new sales strategies

Simply, the classic day pass for the ski resorts stewed and is going out of fashion. The winter resorts are in fact developing new possibilities of ticket sales.

The first step in this direction was made by the stations of Pizol Bad Ragaz (SG) and Belalp (VS), which offer varying prices depending on the weather. In case of bad weather conditions, the ski-pass costs reduced by up to 50% of the original price.

A second alternative is being considered for next winter from Lenzerheide (GR): “Pay-per-use”, the skiers have the opportunity to pay only the systems they use and the price is calculated for each ski. Two new deals possible even in Laax (GR): one is the VIP-Ticket “Blueline” which allows those who are willing to pay more to jump the queue passing directly by a special fast track, the other is the new proposal for young people who are dedicated to Freestyle; The new “Ski-Ticket light” is in fact designed for individuals who only attend the Snow Park area.

Zermatt

Zermatt

Zermatt is a beautiful Swiss village on Mount Rosa, at the foot of the Matterhorn . And ‘it is lying in the bottom of the Mattertal Valley and you arrive only by train; in village works only electric vehicles. And ‘one of the few ski resorts without a car.

Attention to the environment that is also seen in the approach unusual for lifts (ISO 14001) and energy in self-sufficiency of the top restaurants, given by photovoltaic and solar panel systems.

Zermatt is one with Italian Valtournenche and Breuil Cervinia in the district Matterhorn Ski Paradise, with 350 km of slopes. Very spectacular and the descent from the Klein Matterhorn extremely long (almost 3900 m) to the country through the glacier of Plateau Rosa.

The facilities are very modern, but there are still signs of the tradition like the little train from the village of Zermatt reaches 3200 meters Gornergrad between incomparable scenery, tracks, tunnels and walls of snow.

Another example of modernity is the underground funicular to the ski area Sonnegga. Upon arrival of the Klein Matterhorn cable car you can visit the Ice Palace, a series of caves dug at 15 m depth in the glacier.

The company has not confirmed but it is not impossible that this move will be part of an artfully made marketing campaign to pump up the exit of the new smartphone from Samsung in view of the presentation on Sunday at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
From the video you can guess that the design and the soft, rounded lines of the Galaxy are essentially remained the same, while it seems that there could be a return of water and dust resistance, present already sull’S5 and not proposed in the latest release output in 2015.
The other strong point of the phone will be wireless charging ultra fast, improvements in terms of safety and a completely revolutionized camera to work better in low light conditions.
According to reports gathered over the past few weeks, the S7 will have a 5.1 inch screen while the S7 Edge will have the curved screen and will be slightly larger (5.5 inches) but both will be equipped with a port for the charging that promises to be revolutionary, because half an hour would be enough to fully charge the smartphone. Another innovation should be the introduction of the scanner to the retina that could be the new way to speed the release of the phone and authorize the payments by phone for both the Play Store that, one day, for Android Pay. There are still uncertainties about the indication of a possible introduction of a 3D touch sensor like Apple, already seen on the iPhone 6S and on the possible reintroduction of the MicroSD slot and removable battery, even though they had been asked in a loud voice by users. As for the price of the device, rumors have been circulating about a possible downside to EUR 650 to do more to Apple competition: Trony was the first big chain to distribute a flyer to open the smartphone’s orders, offering it to 729 euro along with a powerbank and viewers to virtual reality.

A small village which lies at the foot of the town of Serrana Fontana. The picturesque fishing hamlet is a little gem overlooking the sea. From the characteristic square of an isthmus that connects an island where once stood a small church and where you established the cult of St. Michael, the guardian angel who gave his name to the village.

Demented and punk, Zoolander 2 is even better than the first

It takes genius to celebrate a ‘ridiculing’ world. It takes a sense of play and irony to get into the hands of that ‘genius’. The result, increasingly cult (and cool) albeit from a trashy registry, you Zoolander 1 and 2

Ridiculously awesome. Zoolander and it was just like that: beautiful, beautiful in an absurd way.
Its the world of comedy applied models and fashion shows is based on stereotypes, film quotes, and important cameos, or on a scheme so simple that it can be more limit that opportunity but … Smash! Today even more than the first time. Also thanks to the excellent appearances.
Anticipate would be an unacceptable spoiler: the taste stays in the ‘No, do not believe it’ every time you recognize someone. Because, to play the game desecrating a movie that entertains both those who do not understand fashion, convinced that ‘massacres’ the system while we wallow in, both those who loves fashion and fashion feeds, which appreciates the spirit of self-deprecating * with which the designers participating, are the largest. Only great. Big names and big stars of pop, folk and mainstay of global culture, involved some more and some less, but all with explosive results, demonstrating that nothing is cooler than a healthy and responsible look a little ‘around.
In this, Zoolander is a large and, after all, harmless carnival, where all welcome the theme of the party, they exaggerate a bit ‘and enjoying a trashy night, grotesque, hyperbolic, absurd, insane and even a bit’ punk of which remain just great fun. Actually, no. It will remain a new sympathy for those who took part.
Ben Stiller and associates, in the role of Jester in which everything is allowed, are the lords. Gentlemen writers. There is not a bad comic timing, and there is no banal catchphrase craziness without lapses of taste. It’s not easy.
Dumb & Dumber, playing with a different pair of super idiots (played by Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels), or Bruno Sacha Baron Cohen, they gathered signatures big laugh on similar grounds but did not even come close to perfect chemistry Zoolander. The point is that Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson have something extra and, paradoxically, in a film that jokes about and with fashion, it is the elegance of a Magnum.

Breathtaking landscapes, snow-capped peaks, clean air and very very cold. Those who enjoy holidays in the mountains is certainly not discouraged by low temperatures, that is clear, but perhaps not everyone knows that you can stay warm without compromising on style. The brands specialize with new technologies: fabrics light but ultra warm, natural yarns prized (and more accessible) and new combinations of materials.

The accessories for the mountains, therefore, must be simple but ensure high performance.

The gloves are made of wool, such as those of Coccinelle, or with the hair, such as those of Aldo. The backpacks are technical and eco-friendly; Freitag, the Swiss brand that uses waste materials and transforms them into fabric, was able to design them waterproof and colorful, as well as unique.
For the head, classic hats cap to keep warm or soft ear pads for eccentric personalities. The shoes and boots are a low shot such as Camper and Emu Australia, with stiletto for women who do not like hiking at high altitudes but the break in a cabin, or sneakers for urban female travelers.
There is no lack of plush bags and quilted fabrics and sunglasses with mirrored lenses and a contemporary design.

“I spent $ 40,000 on shoes and I have a place to live. Literally I am become the old lady who lived in a shoe, as in the fairy tale. “

It is impossible not to think back to this quote from Carrie Bradshaw ringing the bell of the beautiful New York apartment by Candace Bushnell. From his pen came the star of Sex and the City, made famous worldwide by bestseller, television series and movies. Almost fifty-seven years, the writer has bundled her collection of Manolo Blahnik and sold the apartment of crazy parties. But the similarities end there.
“Everyone asks me how much there is of me in the characters that I created, but I only brush: it draws on personal experiences, then you work with the imagination,” says Bushnell a bit ‘annoyed, because the parallel between her and his heroines does not stop at Sex and the City. His latest book, Golden Girl (Piemme), starring PJ Wallis, a divorced writer who can not leave behind her alter ego: the golden girl Monica and the actress who made her famous.
Hard not to make comparisons with reality. “Absolutely no. Unlike P.J. Wallis, I had an easy divorce (in 2012 by Charles Askegard, dancer of the New York City Ballet ten years her junior, ed) and in all my books there are characters who are actresses. It is a type that fascinates me: sit in front of a mirror for hours, surrounded by makeup artists and hairdressers working on your image and change your connotations, I have deep psychological repercussions. All this has always intrigued me. ”
It does not happen that way for most of the women who every day, before facing the day, carefully choosing clothes and makeup? “It is true. We live in a society obsessed by appearances. Everyone would like to be the Monica Golden Girl: beautiful, elegant and happy. I think there’s a Monica in all of us: the women – and not only – we build an artificial image showing the world through social sites or to find a soul mate. But it’s a shell, an empty shell, a game of appearances without substance. In the US, for example, are fixed with big breasts, but it is an aesthetic ideal imposed by men, we must have the courage to reject it and remain themselves. If I thought about plastic surgery? Of course, but personally I do not care to waste my time to please men. ”
Indeed, the Bushnell that opens the door – without a trace of makeup, colored leggings and boots blacks, nervous energy seeping from every pore of the small body – is very different from Candace in designer clothes of glossy magazines. “I do not like labels. You can be at the same time, a city girl and a country girl, all dressed for a gala, sloppy the next day. The important thing is not to worry too much about the external assessment. It is a freedom that I won after reaching fifty. Doubts, insecurities and self-criticism are the lifeblood of every author. I still spend most of the day to re-read what I wrote and then shout: “But how bad is this sentence.” By the time I learned to be a little ‘less hard on myself. I have no children and now, at the threshold of the 57 years I find myself single again, and yet I do not feel alone or incomplete. I came back to live in Connecticut where I took the passion of my youth, the horses. I lead a retired life, work, sports and some dinner with friends. ” In short, the Manolo Blahnik, Mr. Big and holidays Studio 54 thing of the past.
“As a young man, passing in front of this building, where Richard Gere had an apartment, I said to myself:” One day we will live too. ” I did, but this is the apartment where I lived with my husband and now it’s time to change: I just sold. I’m looking for a pied-a-terre in New York for the social occasions. I still like to dress for a party and I love fashion as an art form, but the popular favorite shoes of Carrie Bradshaw (in this case fantasy and reality coincide: the Bushnell owns a hundred, ed) are no longer topical. Even New York City has changed. Do not get me wrong, for those who want to have sex there are opportunities. But people really cool, creative people can no longer afford this city, biodynamic growing vegetables in the gardens of Brooklyn, certainly not sipping Cosmopolitan. ” Candace’s phone continues to report incoming messages. She gets up, walks nervously back and forth on the floor of the house of the Village now empty and exclaims triumphantly: “They have accepted the offer for the ideal pied-a-terre.” And so Candace Bushnell turns the page.

SKIING IN November

LOCATION ‘RECOMMENDED TO START SEASON
where to ski early in the season
Many skiers are wondering where to ski early in the season. There is a number of ski resort that are recommended because they lend themselves more than others for skiing in November because of their high altitude, perhaps for the presence of glaciers or for a snow-making system which allows very efficient early openings.

The conditions vary from year to year, but it is good practice to choose ski areas which offer runs above 2500 meters.

 

Not many Italian places where you can ski from the first days of November, while there are many ski resorts which open towards the end of the month. The Italian places that we would recommend for the first half of the season are:

Cervinia (AO) from the country’s two cable cars and a cable car leading skiers up to 3480 meters of the Plateau Rosa. The plant opened earlier in the season are all on the Swiss side. And ‘therefore necessary to have the international ski pass. From Saturday, November 8, 2014 will be open tracks also on the Italian side with the top twenty of the Plan area and the Mason – Fornet – Bontadini.
Presena Glacier (BS): the Presena glacier offers the first ski runs Adamello Ski starting Saturday 8 novebre 2014.
Solda (BZ): open from 8 November, offers three long chair lifts over 2600 meters. In mid-November, there is also the Solda Ski Happening to celebrate the opening of the slopes.
Val Senales (BZ): was one of the last resorts to offer summer skiing in South Tyrol. Now that possibility no longer exists but the high altitude and the glacier are guaranteed excellent snow early in the season.

C_4_articolo_2012128_lstParagrafi_itemParagrafo_0_upiImmagineparagrafo
Abroad there is a bunch of places where you can have fun at the beginning of the season. It should be borne in mind that France, despite having locations at high altitudes tend to open their facilities to the bridge of All Saints only to close them again until the end of the month. Switzerland and Austria were most likely to start skiing season, in particular to:

Diavolezza (SWITZERLAND): Already by mid-October is open to the public a chairlift at 3000 meters altitude. The return to the valley is opened only after heavy snowfall while otherwise descend by cable car.
Hintertux (AUSTRIA): is one of the stations with the highest number of open lifts thanks to the glacier skiing 365 days a year.
In Saas Fee (SWITZERLAND): there is a large glacier with a dense network of facilities are also open in November.

Alpine skiing: The blue team work between glaciers and South America

The preparation of the national alpine skiing to winter is living its crucial phase: between August and September, in fact, almost all the teams – and Italy is no exception – fly to South America or Oceania using the austral winter and therefore the ski resorts of the two continents to return to sample the snow.

There is no lack sessions on shrinking glaciers, this year put to a severe test by the violent heat of July and August which kept Freezing often above the 4500 meters: in any case, the Italian team is continuing its work which, judging by the statements of the technical, it appears very satisfactory. As reported Raceskimagazine, in fact, the new head of the technical disciplines female Gianluca Rulfi says he is “pleased for the athletic level of girls, particularly those more experienced,” noting as missing “or motivations, or the potential to do very well.” Statements in line with those made by Max Carca, responsible for the men’s team, the site Fisi, we have taken up in this article.

Specifically, the group of male giant has just returned from Argentina, while slalom Stephen Gross, Giuliano Razzoli and Patrick Thaler are working in Saas Fee: Roberto Nani has instead done preparation tailored to New Zealand, taking part also to four slalom special Australian New Zealand Cup with a third place in Perisher best result. The choice of Livigno to compete despite the fever that has gripped for several days is due to the need to lower the score FIS for starting numbers among the best rapid gates and not only among the wide doors of the giant. The men’s team speed instead to work in La Parva, Chile, after a first internship in Valle Nevado.

As for the girls, a large group of gigantiste, supergigantiste and discesiste started two days ago at a time of Ushuaia, the great location and the End of the World: here, under the orders of Alberto Ghezze and Gianluca Rulfi, will host a stage of three weeks is expected to culminate with the dispute, for some athletes, the finals of the South American Cup. The slalomiste Chiara Costazza, Irene Curtoni, Nicole Agnelli, Federica Sosio and Manuela Moelgg are instead practicing at the Stelvio Pass with technical Angelo Weiss and Luke Liore.

The World Cup will start as usual between 24 and 25 October in Soelden, where these days came the first snow of the season.

Mont Blanc, it fights on the border. Chamonix: “It ‘France’. Courmayeur: “No, it’s Italian”

Mont Blanc, is quarrel between France and Italy. Chamonix has closed access to the glacier of the Giant from Torino refuge. “They removed the warning information that we had placed after the massive influx of tourists – said the mayor of Courmayeur Fabrizia Derriard – and closed the passage. But the shelter Turin is Italy.”

Rome, September 7, 2015 – The Mont Blanc and its border: where does Italy and France where he started? The dispute is beautiful open, and the last act of the tug bears the signature of the mayor of Chamonix. Access closed from Torino refuge of the glacier du Géant. Because what they say from Chamonix, “French territory”. Different opinion in Courmayeur – united by the Mont Blanc tunnel to Chamonix own – where they have absolutely no doubts: “Up there is Italy, have no competence”.

THE BACKGROUND In recent days, two mountain guides from across the Alps, to the order of the mayor Eric Fournier, have blocked access to the glacier. Reason: security issues. “They removed the warning information that we had placed after the massive influx of tourists in recent months – said the mayor of Courmayeur Fabrizia Derriard – and closed the passage, also creating danger for climbers who now have to jump over a hurdle to set foot on the snow. ” “The shelter is in Turin Italy – thundered still Derriard – and there the French have no jurisdiction. The decision to close the passage will have legal consequences. It is true, our land registry does not match that of Chamonix. We still we rely on maps NATO transposing the Convention of 1860 and put the border on the watershed. ”

According to the French border passes under the Torino hut, which then would be in the Transalpine territory, for Italians instead is in the middle of the glacier, about 300 meters higher, and therefore it would be in Italy. Delfino Viglione, Marshal of the Guardia di Finanza of Entreves, for years dealing with the question: “The boundaries are on the watershed, from the Dome du Gouter to the summit of Mont Blanc, the Mont Maudit to the Tour Ronde, from the Flambeau with up to tip Hellbronner. At altitude there are the stones, is the ridge that forms the boundary. ”

BOUNDARIES AND REALITY The last clash between the two neighboring municipalities comes more than two months after the comment Renzi, that on June 23 he said “We have not invaded France” with the back of a giant glacial heart of Mont Blanc. The externalization of the Prime Minister came not by chance: with the difficult situation in the Mediterranean and the tensions at the border of Ventimiglia France-Italy, also the border dispute of Mont Blanc has resumed vigorously share. And there’s more: during a visit to the new reality of Rai2 Mont Blanc, run Catherine Bailiff, have not gone unnoticed the four tents pitched on the glacier of Giant. The French have taken pains to emphasize that the Valdostane Alpine Guides “Ici c’est nous, c’est la France”. “For us – he said recently the president of the mountain guides of Valle d’Aosta, Guido Azzalea – is more and more difficult to work on the French side.” History now base camp for that very future of RAI-2 will follow the official channels, from the ministry IGM up, the Institute of Military Geography. The inauguration of the new plant of the border, which on June 25 was attended by the Prime Minister Renzi, were not present nor the representatives of the cable cars Chamoniarde, nor the mayor of Chamonix. Now even close access. It will serve to restore peace a reality?

MOVED THE FRONTIER The boundaries also gave headaches last year at Colle del Piccolo San Bernardo, a few kilometers from White. “The French with a bulldozer – recalled a guide – they moved the boundary stone of 150 meters. As it is obvious that it is immediately returned to his place.” The dispute starts over 150 years ago, from 1865, when the French drew an ear on the southern side of the mountain. Decision which became law and that even without being a parliamentary Luciano Caveri in 1996 and a European assembly of three years after Nicholas Rinaldi was able to resolve. Since 2011, Google Maps also took note of: a reinvented border and towards the Dôme du Goûter, and towards Punta Helbronner.
