20th ENGLISH ALPINE CHAMPIONSHIPS
14th – 19th Feb 2016
BORMIO – Italy
2016 will be the 20th English Alpine Championships!
Building on the success of previous years, the English Alpine Championship 2016 returns to Bormio (Italy) for the ninth year in succession. The competition begins with the Opening Ceremony on Saturday February 13th, followed by a full six day programme of races from 14th to 19th.
The Parade will start at 4pm prompt. Leaving from Via Roma, same as last year ending in the Town Square with drinks and a welcome from the town Mayor. Come along it is a great way to start the week.
Bormio is a thriving little town at the top of the Valtellina valley in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy. It is positioned on the historic trading route between Venice and Switzerland, with connections via mountain passes to the South Tyrol and Livigno. In the town you can find the expected range of shops, bars and restaurants, as well as the thermal baths for which the town has long been famous.
This is the wide piste above Bormio 2000, accessed via the main gondola.
This is the big hill used for the FIS races you can see on the TV. It too is accessed via the gondola to 2000, then dropping down across the mountain to our various start points – we don’t use the whole World Cup run! On this slope we will be running all the FIS races, plus the floodlit team parallel slalom and the U14/U16 Super-G.
The Race Office (aka “The Bunker”) is situated in the Auditorium which is in the basement of the large grey building by the roundabout. Signs will be posted outside to make it clear to everyone exactly how to find their way in.
The opening times for the Race Office will be clearly posted for all to see.
All meetings will take place in the Auditorium next to the Race Office. Signs will be displayed outside so you know where to find us. Details will appear on this website nearer to the championships.
