THIS IS WHERE THE NORWEGIAN SKI TEAM WILL BE TRAINING
Paganella says goodbye to Bode Miller, Ted Ligety and Co. of the American team and welcomes Svindal and his team mates of the Norwegian Ski Team!
The Norwegian Alpine Skiing team chose Paganella as its official training base. The Olimpionica 2 and Nuvola Rossa slopes will be prepared for the Norwegian athletes.
One of the top athletes in the Norway Ski Team, Aksel Lund Svindal has this to say about Paganella:
“I knew Andalo from my participation in the Alpine Rockfest and couldn't wait to return and start training on some of the most beautiful slopes in the Alps. The town is near major communication routes so I'll be able to relax between one race and the next.”
Kjetil Jansrud is also an old friend of Paganella and says:
“I know Andalo well, and I’ve been here to train many times. Once 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."
Here he is training on Paganella's black run, closely followed by the American athlete Tommy Ford:”
