Grande Circolo – an ode to our home
South Tyrol is our home, our roots and our playground. This region is our inspiration and influences our thinking and doing. It is the testing field for our products, the home of great alpinist and, for sure, one of the most beautiful spots in the world. The Grande Circolo is an ode to this region. It is an alpine tour along the regional borders by fair means.
The tour started with the Alta Via in autumn 2018 where we managed 150 km and 8.770 m elevation gain from Tires to Sexten in seven days. A tour by fair means on foot, bike and via ferrata. A tour that left its traces not only on our physical appearance but also inside your mind and soul.
Simone Mondino – participants of the Alta Via edition: “Those of you who have followed the event online may think that the Alta Via was just a normal week of mountain walking, yet I can fully attest to the fact that it was much more than that……This project really gets inside of you. It makes you excited. It gives you goose bumps days after because it literally marks you. It forces you to find your limits and allows you to be at one with that real, pure mountain.”
End of February 2019 we will continue to discover our region by Ski Traverse. Starting from last year’s stop in Sexten, across the mountain riches along the border to Austria up to Sterzing, this ambitious Ski Mountaineering tour has some challenges to offer: 6 days of continuous movement, exhausting 126,1 km distance, 8.828 m elevation gain and – that is the probably the best part – 9.454 m skiing down – hopefully in deep powder.
If you are curious about this project, we invite you to follow us on our socials from the 24th of February until 3rd of March 2019 and get inspired!
