The Valle Anterselva is a term for all those who are interested in sports and especially winter sports. The valley is home to the renowned biathlon and cross country skiing center Südtirol Arena Alto Adige, which has frequently been the venue for the Biathlon World Cup race. The setting around the center is uniquely beautiful. Surrounded by the mountain peaks of the Vedrette di Ries-Rieserferner chain and in the immediate vicinity of the Antholzer See lake, the landscape has so much to offer and forms the perfect backdrop for Nordic skiers and biathletes. The biathlon and cross country skiing center consists of the main building and of course many trails with different degrees of difficulty from easy to challenging. It is possible to ski in the classic or skating style on around 60 km (nearly 40 miles) of trails. Biathlon courses are offered throughout the entire year, while cross country ski courses are held only in the wintertime. But during the summer, the routes can also be used with ski rollers or by joggers.
Exactly 70 years after Cortina and 20 years after Turin, the world's largest winter sports event will once again take place in Italy. The candidature of Milan and Cortina won the bid for the Olympic Winter Games 2026.
Antholz will host the Biathlon competitions. Thus, for the first time in sports history, Olympic medals will be won on South Tyrolean soil.
The 25th Olympic Winter Games will take place from 6 to 22 February 2026, the Paralympics from 6 to 15 March 2026, although these competitions will not be held in Antholz.
