Sellaronda Skimarathon 2017
The Sellaronda race should not be underestimated!
  • In 2017 the Sellaronda Skimarathon will take place on Friday 24 March arriving  in Arabba.
  • Oswald Santin: «The Sellaronda race should not be underestimated!»

A month or so has gone by since the last team crossed the finish line at Corvara’s ice stadium, in the heart of Alta Badia, but the Organizing Committee, coordinated by the Mountain Guide Oswald Santin is already hard at work organizing the twenty second edition which will have its headquarters in Arabba.

«We’ve gone straight back to work- said Oswald Santin – before settling into the summer season, we met up with the Valle di Arabba’s Committee to decide when to hold next edition’s race. Before evaluating possible dates, we analyzed a few of the past edition’s aspects. Studying the number of athletes who pulled out or of those who didn’t get past the gates, one out of eight teams did not finish the race, so we came to the conclusion that the Sellaronda Skimarathon is a competition which should not be under estimated. Even if snow and weather conditions during the 21st edition were perfect, 72 teams did not cross the finish line at Corvara. This proves, that in spite of the race being tackled on easy, groomed slopes, the athletic factor, training, and having excellent downhill skiing skills are fundamental elements in bringing the Sellaronda home.
It is for this reason that I congratulate all finishers.

Furthermore we were astonished by the increase in number of mixed teams, in 2016 we have gone from 57 teams in 2016 compared to 40 during the previous edition. Due to this increase, we have decided to add another ranking, with its own prize money for this very interesting category».
«In terms of next year’s dates- Santin continued- there were two possibilities during 2017: the 17 March or else the successive Friday, the 24 March. The final choice was to schedule Sellaronda’s twenty-second edition on Friday 24 March. This choice was dictated by the availability hotels in Arabba had of offering accommodation to all competitors».
«The international calendars- Santin concluded- are not yet known, there is the risk that once again the Sellaronda will take part at the same time as one of the World Cup’s stages, I am very sorry for this risk, but competitors’ needs for accommodation have prevailed. I hope that the technical directors of the various national teams will let their athletes freely decide to take part in the Sella Ronda, not like this year. Ski-mountaineering started off following a sense of freedom, I hope it continues this way!».

Diego Perathoner
Ahead with your ideas!
Founding father of the SELLARONDA SKIMARATHON

Over twenty years ago in Canazei three or four friends with a great passion for ski mountaineering, one autumn evening while chatting away in a pub, “invented” the SELLARONDA SKIMARATHON. A few months later with the first snowfall they set off at night to give their dream a go, “ the 4 passes” . They spent almost all night on the slopes. At the beginning they discussed all the organizational aspects, above all deciding whether it was better to tackle the circuit clock-wise or anti-clockwise, as well as where to tackle the ascent to Passo Campolongo (Bec de Roces).

One of those friends was Diego Perathoner, who in ’95 decided to organise the “Tour of the 4 passes” with skins. He thus became the head of the Organizational Committee coordinating the four Ladin valleys which surround the Sella massif to initiate this innovative project. He also had the bright idea of rotating the starting/arrival town each year to give each valley a turn. If there were only 100 couples at the starting line of the first edition over the years it became the world’s most famous ski mountaineering race on groomed slopes, in fact after its 6th edition Diego had to put a limit on the number of athletes registering.

The first 5-6 editions were dominated by the legendary couple Chicco Pedrini and Fabio Meraldi, a few years later they handed over their crown to Hansjorg Lunger and Guido Giacomelli.

A few editions were very difficult to organize due to the severe weather conditions, with strong winds and heavy snowfalls all the Organizational Committee was put to the test.

The 5th edition was especially difficult for Diego Perathoner, where Corvara had to take over from Selva in Val Gardena as start/arrival location.

In 2009 he had to make the most difficult decision: cancel the competition a few hours before the start. The controversy which followed hurt Diego deeply and became hard for him to forget.

During the same year, on 26th December, Diego Perathoner lost his life, together with his three friends from the Mountain Rescue team, during a rescue on the Sella massif. All of a sudden the SELLARONDA SKIMARATHON lost its founding father, its president, its soul. For a moment the idea of not continuing with the event developed, but the Perathoner family gave strong signals to push ahead with his work. In 2010, in a joint effort, the volunteers of all four Ladin valleys organized the first edition without Diego.

To go ahead with this prestigious event is one of the best ways to honour and remember Diego Perathoner. The organizational committee’s leitmotiv is:

“INANT CON TIA IDEES” --- Move forward with your ideas
