The Gran Risa slope in Alta Badia is one of the most technically and demanding slopes in the alpine ski circus. With an altitude difference of 448 m, a length of 1,255 m and a maximum gradient of 69%, it challenges the world's best skiers every year in the FIS Alpine World Cup. The start for this literally breath-taking descent is situated at an altitude of 1,871 metres, just below where the black and the red runs down the Piz La Ila separate. Very experienced skiers will find their high expectations met when they tackle the challenging, and technically highly interesting, Gran Risa Piste. Its entire length runs along a narrow track through a pine forest.
