Torino 2025 start his tour through Regione Piemonte: discovering Pragelato, host venue for cross country skiing and biathlon

Discovering the Piedmont area, protagonist of the 2025 World University Games Winter. After the appointment of last March 9 with the mayor of Turin Stefano Lo Russo, today a delegation of the Organizing Committee of Torino 2025 was welcomed in Pragelato, which will be the theater of cross-country skiing and biathlon competitions after having already been the protagonist of the 2007 Winter Universiade, again coordinated by Cus Torino.

The host was the mayor of Pragelato, Giorgio Merlo: “It was a very constructive meeting, in which we found an agreement to work together for this international event, between staff and all those involved. Then, since it is an event that challenges the territory, it gives us the opportunity to enhance Pragelato and our Olympic valleys as an attractive element for winter and summer tourism through high-level sport. We will do everything we can to achieve the goal”.

The road to Torino 2025, therefore, has begun, with great attention to the legacy to be left on the territory and with the desire to organize an event in the name of environmental and economic sustainability. As happened in 2007, there will be a great involvement of volunteers in the area, a fundamental resource to support all operations related to cross-country and biathlon competitions, with training that will start in previous years.

Thus Riccardo D’Elicio (deputy vice president of WUG Torino 2025 and president of Cus Torino): “In this tour planned with the mayors to understand their intentions, we have so far found great enthusiasm and availability. We also talked with them about the critical issues and the project to be promoted for after 2025, with what our event will leave on the territory in terms of resources for the future. We are preparing sports and residential hospitality in view of the visit of the official Fisu delegation in May which will be another important step towards our Games”.

The tour will continue in the coming weeks touching Bardonecchia, Pinerolo and Torre Pellice, the other municipalities that will host the Turin 2025 Winter Games.
