Participants will meet at the Baita Daniel at 9.30 a.m. and race bibs will be randomly drawn and assigned at the starting line; the race itself, a simple parallel slalom, will follow at 11 a.m. An aperitif with DJ Simon will take place before the race. From 4.00 p.m. there will be a concert performed by the group Volxrock at Val d’Anna Hut. The prize giving ceremony will take place at 5.00 p.m. The race is open exclusively to women competing as a pair (friends, sisters, mother/daughter, etc.) between the ages of 18 and 99.

Moreover, Charity Teams can also register for 150,00 per team. Part of the regular fee and all of the Charity Teams’ fee will be donated to the ‘Donne aiutano Donne’ foundation, a South Tyrolean association supporting women in need.

What is a Dirndl?
The Dirndl was conceived as work attire for Austrian women in the 19th century. It was then adopted by well-heeled Austrians only around 1870, becoming a fashion item for women of the time. Today, the Dirndl is used for formal occasions and during some traditional events. Many younger women wear more colourful versions compared to the original Dirndl for parties or other fun events.
