Kronplatz will host the latest women's giant slalom competition when the International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine Skiing World Cup continues tomorrow.
Organisers in the Italian resort are already pledging a "highly demanding" course.
The event is seen as part of the build-up to the Alpine Ski World Championships which will take place in Sweden next month.
Åre will host the Championships between February 4 and 17.
The resort is part of the Swedish bid for the 2026 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games with Stockholm.
Skiers will seek to secure a boost heading into the Championships with Kronplatz offering another opportunity to claim a victory.
Federica Brignone will hope to claim the title in front of a home crowd, with the Italian currently topping the women's giant slalom World Cup rankings.
She currently has a total of 270 points having secured one victory and a second place in the opening four giant slalom races.
France's Tessa Worley is just five points adrift, following a win and a third place result.
The overall World Cup leader Mikaela Shiffrin currently lies third in the giant slalom standings on 255 points.
The American will hope to continue her stunning form in Italy tomorrow as she bids for a third consecutive overall World Cup title.
The next men's Alpine World Cup competition is set to begin on Friday (January 18) with an Alpine combined event at Wengen in Switzerland.
A downhill competition will take place the following day, before a slalom event on Sunday (January 20).
