Following these world championships, the track was no longer used for competition purposes. It was not until 2014, after long and expensive work, that the World Cup events returned to the legendary track. The starting point for the races today is the same as during the 1987 championships. Since then, the Bouby Rombaldi slope has hosted Alpine Ski World Cup events each year, allowing skiers and spectators alike to relive special moments on a unique site in an idyllic setting.
