For two consecutive years the riders of Team Europe and Team Americas fought for glory in the SWATCH SKIERS CUP held in the snowy arena of Valle Nevado, Chile. After losing the inaugural 2011 edition, Team Americas battled back in September 2012 to even the score at 1 - 1, adding more intensity to the rivalry of this cutting-edge event.
This winter the tie will be broken when the SWATCH SKIERS CUP comes to the Northern hemisphere for the first time, in Switzerland, with the teams set to meet in Zermatt, Switzerland on Sunday, 5 January 14 - Friday, 10 January 14
ZERMATT: ALPINE EPICENTER
One of the most respected ski centres in the world, Zermatt, Switzerland is as unique as it is recognizable. It is here that the most impressive peaks and largest glaciers in the Alps come together with cutting edge skiing infrastructure and an unmatched five-star village experience.
From the Matterhorn to the Gornergrat, these timeless symbols of the Alps are just part of everyday life for those lucky enough to come to this magical valley.
Climbers and skiers have had centuries to explore the fantastic mountain terrain that surrounds Zermatt. Yet new chapters are written each season, with people such as local guide Samuel Anthamatten pioneering new climbing and skiing lines on the walls that tower above his village, and events like the SWATCH SKIERS CUP bringing renewed energy to this special town.
