The Marmot Trophy is an important ski mountaineering race of international fame, which has been a leg of the ISMF World Cup a total of three times. The tracks, some rather challenging with an altitude up to 1,750 metres, penetrate deep into the magnificent Stelvio National Park and touch the Cevedale Glacier.
The race was first held in 2008 and in 2011 it celebrated its debut in the World Cup. Characterised by high altitude, long distances, difficult passages, steep climbs and fast starts, the participating athletes must give maximum effort and only the very best will reach the podium. Over the past few years, ski tours have acquired an increasing level of attention and demand, becoming one of the most popular and loved winter sports.
