EVENT Snow, sunshine, and the Audi FIS Ski World Cup 2015 at Alta Badia

Chances are that if you’re a skiing aficionado, you’ll be familiar with the world-famous 1,255-meter Gran Risa run in La Villa, Alta Badia. This year is a special one for the renowned Italian winter sports venue—it’s celebrating its 30th anniversary.

Alta Badia trophy steel prizes are embellished with glittering Swarovski crystals

This idyllic village in the Dolomite Mountains welcomes thousands of global ski fans annually. Right now, they’re looking forward to the thrilling men’s 2015 slalom races scheduled to take place on December 20 and 21. It deservedly enjoys a reputation as the go-to destination for winter thrills and spills, and while ski racers are testing their skills on the slopes, it’s party time down in the valley.

To mark thirty years of sporting ski action, Italian artist Daniele Basso has created stylishly beautiful trophies that symbolize “a history of passion, determination and talent.” Featuring the logo of one of the most spectacular races of the skiing circuit, the steel prizes are embellished with glittering Swarovski crystals, which reflect the sun glinting off snowy slopes and the dynamism of the skiers. It’s a fitting tribute to the beauty of Alta Badia and the skills of the skiers themselves.
