Matterhorn Cervino speed opening

Breuil Cervinia
08 - 19 November
An absolute first, a spectacle that has never happened before. The Matterhorn Matterhorn Speed Opening is the only cross-border event of the entire Alpine Ski World Cup circuit. Four downhill races start in Switzerland, from the Rollin Hump area above Zermatt and arrive on Italian territory, at Cime Bianche Laghi di Breuil-Cervinia. The men's races are scheduled for Saturday 11 and Sunday 12 November 2023, the women's downhill on the weekend of 18 and 19 November 2023.The opening of the world speed season takes place on the 'Gran Becca' slope, designed by the 2010 Olympic downhill champion, the Swiss Didier Défago. The track measures 3,700 metres, has a vertical drop of 885 metres and a gradient of up to 60 per cent. A maximum speed of 135 kilometres per hour is estimated. The slope is ready to offer thrills and a unique spectacle, made up of bends and jumps, flowing passages alternating with extremely technical ones.
