The "Valena" climb is normally the first uphill that the athletes have to face when competing in a race hosted in Lago di Tesero. It features a total length of almost 250 meters and a maximum gradient of 18.5%. Besides, it leads the athletes through the underpass built on top of the hill at the crossing point between two different parts of the ski-track.
Introduced for the first time during the 2012 Pre-World Championships cross-country races, the «Pojer» climb isn't very long (87 meters), but it is one of the toughest climbs of the entire track, particularly for its average gradient, which reaches a maximum rate of 18.1%.
The last climb of the ski-track and therefore one of the crucial parts of the course, where a strong and bold action can allow the best athletes to make the difference and break away from the group. With a total length of 145 meters and a maximum gradient of 16.7%, the «Zorzi» climb leads the athletes right over the underpass that at the beginning of the track takes them outside the stadium.
Placed between the finish line and the starting area, the transit area has characteristics similar to the final straight and therefore provides the perfect place for «testing» the skis before a possible final sprint. Besides, the atmosphere provided by thousands of spectators in attendance on the grandstands is something unique and not easy to forget.
