Ski Race Club Alta Badia

Ski Race Club Alta Badia (formerly Sci Club Ladinia) is an historical Italian ski race club located in Alta Badia, in the heart of the Dolomites. The Dolomite mountains are included in the UNESCO world's protected natural paradises and are among the most beautiful mountains in the world. Founded in 1946, we rank among the best in Italy: over the years our athletes won countless national, international and World Cup competitions, feeding numerous athletes to the national ski team, in Alpine skiing, Cross country skiing and snowboard. For the last 30 years, Sci Club Ladinia has been organizing one of the “Classics” in the Men’s Alpine Ski World Cup: the “Gran Risa” Giant Slalom and the night Parallel Giant. We also run DC4SKI, a European project supported by the European Commission ERASMUS-Sport aimed at innovate in ski training.
