The slope is very technical and demanding, recommended to athletes and expert skiers. It covers a single ring of 10 km, along a path suited to the classic and free technique (skating). Within it many deviations have been prepared to reduce both the length and the height difference. The percentage of total slope is more than 30% uphill and over 40% downhill. The technical characteristics of the track classify it suitable for national and international competitions.
The natural environment where it runs the slope is really unique, being completely immersed in the forest with breathtaking views on the Marcuoira, the Ciadin of Loudo, Cristallo and Tofane mountain groups. Because of the high altitude where the slope develops, between 1780 and 1864 meters above sea level, there is the guarantee of finding a good quality of snow throughout the winter season.
Recommended period: from December to April

Mountain pass in the Belluno Dolomites (1,805 m.), which connects the valley of the Boite and Cortina d'Ampezzo with Misurina, Auronzo di Cadore and the d'Ansiei valley. At the pass there are several First World War defensive fortresses (bunkers and strongholds). The name 'Three Crosses' is due in memory of a mother with her two children frozen to death, who left from Auronzo di Cadore, in February of 1789, towards Cortina in search of work.
