Ski Cross - the new ski sport which gains year after year lots of coming talents emulating stars of the past years.
Very spectacular is the fight of four racers per run, putting them down through stairs, Wu Tang, corners, rollers, jumps and bancs until reaching the finish area. Through the KO System the two better of this four are qualified for the next turn, followed by the quarter and the half finals. The winner is who of the four remaining arrives first.
This alpine discipline since 2010 is olympic and reaching even more forced media attention through the Ski Cross main sponsor AUDI.
The Watles ski area, together with the Tourism Association Upper Venosta Valley, were able to organise two Audi FIS SkiCross Worldcup Events.
In January 2016 and in January 2017 they organised with success two races in two days running.
For the coming year 2018 there is no international event scheduled.
