The Norwegian National Alpine Ski Team chose Paganella as the official base for his workouts. The Olimpionica2 and Nuvola Rossa will be prepared according to the needs of Norwegian athletes, who have many commitments: the World Cup (open on 22 October in Sölden) and the Olympic games in 2014.
Among the athletes of Norway Ski Team, Aksel Lund Svindal says of Paganella:
"I knew already Andalo after my participation to Alpine Rockfest and I can not wait to go back to train on one of the best slopes of the Dolomites. Thanks to its proximity to major routes I can spend periods of relax between one race and another. "
“I know Andalo well, and I’ve been here to train many times. One time I even got up at 4 in the morning to come and train in Andalo (I was in Val Gardena for the World Cup). I also participated in the Alpine Rockfest: it's not easy to find such well prepared slopes."
