Dear Colleagues,
It is with great pleasure that we extend a warm welcome to all participants of the upcoming International Congress on Science and Skiing (ICSS), scheduled to take place from January 28 to February 1, 2025. After numerous successful editions in Austria, the USA, and Finland, this congress will be hosted in Italy for the first time, in the stunning Dolomites.

The congress will take place in Val di Fiemme, a valley renowned for its strong tourist appeal and exceptional skiing opportunities. The scientific program will be hosted in Cavalese and Tesero. Both the Olympic sites (Cross-Country Skiing Stadium and Ski Jumping Stadium) and the famous Marcialonga cross-country ski trail are conveniently accessible by car or ski bus in just a few minutes.

We eagerly anticipate the enriching discussions, collaborations, and experiences that await us at ICSS 2025.
