THE MARCH OF THE BUF­FALOES

Italia Luxury - - Events -

The Mar­cia­longa is the most im­por­tant and fa­mous cross-coun­try ski­ing marathon in Italy. It is held on the slopes of Valli di Fiemme and Fassa (Trento) on the last Sun­day of Jan­uary. The race, one of the most pop­u­lar and best loved in Italy, takes skiers on a route through the mag­i­cal land­scape of the towns and woods of the Dolomites. Held an­nu­ally, the race is open to skiers of all lev­els, in­clud­ing ‘sen­a­tors’ (the veter­ans) and ‘buf­faloes’ (ama­teur skiers who leave in the last wave of the marathon). The Mar­cia­longa Story is a tra­di­tional event re­served for skiers armed with vin­tage equip­ment and wear­ing vin­tage ski out­fits that is held on the day be­fore the race.
