Asiago7Comuni

The Asiago plateau, composed by eight municipalities (Asiago+7) is a beautiful terrace facing south on the Po Valley and tenderly protected to the north by the magnificent Dolomites. It is one of the most popular and sparkling tourist resorts in winter and summer and also offers a lively after ski.

 

The Asiago Plateau, the capital of cross country skiing
The sports traditions go back to decades, especially skiing on the plateau, with numerous clubs, and associations (some were founded back in the 20s and 30s) and many Italian and world champions have been formed here and have made its name known throughout the world.

 

Among these champions we should remember the famous Guidina Dal Sasso, a leading cross country ski champion, and Fabrizio Tescari, among the best slalom racers who was Italian champion several times.

 

 

To satisfy the growing needs of the various sports groups and improve the tourist offer, the Plateau has been fitted with several modern plants and structures, which can house very high level sports events: for example the World Junior Nordic Ski Championships in 1987 and 1996, the Grass Ski Championships in 1993, which brought the name of the Asiago Plateau to the international sports world. In addition, in the last years Asiago has hosted the Cross country ski World Cup competitions and the Tour de Ski event at the Golf Arena
