Live the finals of the European Alpine Skiing Cup from the hotel El Tarter

Excitement is back in Grandvalira. From 14 to 20 March, it is hosting the new finals of the men’s and women’s Alpine skiing European Cup. The World Cup slopes: Àliga in the El Tarter sector, 200 metres from the hotel, and Avet in Soldeu are the stars of the event. A total of 4 events will be held: slalom, downhill, giant slalom and supergiant. Here are all the details of the competition so that you don’t miss a thing.

The Alpine Ski World Cup slopes

La Àliga is located in the El Tarter sector of Grandvalira, just 200 metres from the hotel. This slope is where the speed competitions take place, as its characteristics allow skiers to reach speeds of up to 120km/hour. It is also famous for its snowpark, which has also been the venue for several top-level sporting events such as some editions of the Total Fight Masters of Freestyle.
The Avet is located in Soldeu, and it was the first to receive the distinction of the FIS (International Ski Federation) and the first to host a competition of these characteristics. In 2008 it hosted a men’s European Cup event.
Over the years, the two slopes have hosted several events until 2019, when Grandvalira became the host of the Alpine Skiing World Cup Finals.
