Moonlight Classic Marathon
The moon will be astounded when it peeks over the Dolomites. Because that’s when the starting pistol will fire for a cross-country marathon of a most unusual kind. Several hundred cross-country skiers will shove off from Compatsch and glide on their narrow skis in the light of their forehead-mounted lamps through the landscape. They’ll follow the route for 30 or 15 kilometres, finally returning to their starting point. But the cross-country race Moonlight Classic in the Dolomites is a fantastic experience not only for the participants, but for the spectators, too!...and the last aerial lift descends into the valley, an hour after midnight.
