Competitive sky-alpinism started in the twenties and figured in the 1924 Olympics in Chamonix under the name of Cours de Patroille Militaire. Officially it became an Olympic event in 1936 in Garmisch, but it was taken out in 1948 after the first post-war Olympics. In Italy the first sky-alpinism race of any importance was held in 1933, the first year of the Mezzalana Trophy. In the sixties and seventies international sky-alpinism competitions flourished, but the lack of consistent rules prevented the development of this sport. Out of all the proposal, perhaps the most exciting one is the "Dolomite Cup" , a number of events held in Trentino, in which couples of athlets carry out all the races together using sky-alpinism equipment. Among the races in the "Dolomite Cup" the one held in the Logorai chain, in the Cima d' Asta area, is particularly excinting. Here in a wild area, far from sky-lifts, the athlets find particularly selective courses ideal for sky-alpinism. In 1994 the sky couples reached the Cima d' Asta peak at 2847 metres. The total difference in height was 3508 metres: 1614 in ascent and 1894 in descent over a course of more than 18 km.
