It is one of the longest-running, futuristic and captivating events in Friuli Venezia Giulia. A goliardic challenge between bobsleigh and self-built sledges in which the one who best sharpens wit, humour, collaborative spirit and desire for healthy fun wins.

It all started from a happy intuition of the operator from Tolmezzo Attilio Quaglia and a group of friends who at the beginning of the 2000s launched an imaginative competition from the snow of the Zoncolantransformed in a short time into an extremely successful event, succeeding in its past editions in attracting tens of thousands of spectators to the Carnic snows, obtaining among other things an incredible media visibility at national and international level.

In March 2022, during the last edition, 29 teams took part, over 150 competitors for an estimated public attendance of thousands of people over the three days hosted in Tarvisio. The Wallabies of Cernieu di Nimis were the winners of the trophy, staging the historic TV series of Hazzard – with Bo and Luke Dukes on board the General Lee, Boss Hogg and Ross Coltrane, cousin Daisy and uncle Jesse. During the race, real works of avant-garde ingenuity were seen, from anti-covid syringes to the strobe lights of discos, from traveling coffins to dinosaurs on skis, passing through pedal boats, ambulances, trains, kiosks, reproductions of cartoons.
