Peak to Creek 2017: a great day of skiing in Bormio

Yesterday the event Peak to Creek 2017 took place on the ski area of Bormio (Italian Alps): 400 hundred skiers joined what it was named as “the greatest one on one ski challenge”, which made its twelth edition.

The original course was supposed to start from the peak of the mountain, at 3,012 meters, but due to safety measures, the Organizing Committee wisely decided to lower the start from 2,636 meters at Cimino. The original and unique paired up start and the tough passages on the Stelvio slope maintained the spectacular nature of the race. The distance of the course was 5.9 km and the vertical drop was 1,411 meters.

Once the top racers reached the finish lined in Bormio – at 1,225 m – they looked short of breath and tired as proof of the race’s hardness. Relaxing and smiling were, instead, the non competitive skiers who were anyhow the sure protagonists of the day.
