Val di Fiemme, northern Italy – Location of the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2013

Val di Fiemme is the location of the upcoming FIS Nordic World Ski Championships for the third time - after already hosting it in 1991 and 2003. It is a beautiful area and a fantastic venue to host this global event.

Val di Fiemme is a valley in the Trentino province of northern Italy, situated and nestled in the Dolomites alpine region.

Fiemme is famous for its skiing areas, enjoys a great tradition for Cross Country Skiing and can be considered the cradle of the Italian face of this sport as well.

The ski jumping stadium in Predazzo was built for the World Championships in 1991 and contains two hills: a HS 106 normal hill on the left side and a HS 134 large hill on the right 

side of the stadium. The Cross Country Center is located in Lago di Tesero.

The favourable position of the stadium and the snow-making capabilities guarantee well-prepared tracks regardless of natural snowfall levels.
