This slope is approved by the International Ski Federation FIS and has hosted on more than one occasion the Alpine ski World Cup in Grandvalira, Andorra, with the world titles slalom, downhill, etc.
Its characteristics and the way it has been conditioned make it a unique location that offers an unforgettable experience for both skiers and spectators on the ski world cup slope in El Tarter, Andorra.
If you have ever wondered why the Grandvalira logo resembles a “X”, today we bring you the answer.
Article summary about the Àliga slope:
The Àliga slope is made up of two independent slopes that at one point intertwine with each other forming a big “X”. And yes, this is what gives meaning to the Grandvalira logo!
On one side we have the Àliga SG slope, which is the one that descends from right to left in the image and has the following characteristics:
Start: 2.320m Arrival: 1.720m Length: 2.208m Width: 60m Maximum slope: 56%.
On the other hand we have the Àliga SL track which is the one that descends from left to right in the image and that was recovered to be able to host the slalom trials. Its characteristics are as follows:
Start: 1.910m Arrival: 1.720m Length: 502m Width: 40m Maximum slope: 53%.
Between 2012 and 2013 took place the remodelling and refurbishment of the Àliga track in which around 3 million euros were invested. During these years, trees were cut down to widen the track, a lateral protection net was installed, timing cables, an artificial snow production network, and a public address system, among others. These changes allowed it to meet the conditions that made it an FIS-approved track and in 2014 the first downhill race in the Iberian Peninsula was held.
Events at the Àliga Slope
The Àliga slope is a meeting place for lovers of snow sports where we can see the debut of the best athletes of the world skiing scene as Marcel Hirscher, Mikaela Shiffrin, and Ingemar Stenmark.
