Rope Race ∙ Gara di Cordata

10 March 2019 ∙ Kesselberg slope ∙ Merano 2000


It’s “holding on tight together" that counts!

A traditional fun race where (almost) anything is allowed – what matters is holding on together and having fun!

It is run in teams of three, in the "Grown ups""Family ties" and "Work Team" categories. Three racers, connected by a rope, master a simple giant slalom route, to reach the finishing line together.

On the podium: The winning team, which is closest to the average time, as well as the fastest and the slowest team. It’s nostalgic, fancy and a bit quirky – just like your ski outfit if you so wish...

The Merano Ski Club and the Merano 2000 ski area have revived an old tradition and bid farewell to winter with music, fun and good spirits.
