18.03.2016: Switzerland: Tradition on the slopes

From February 18-21, the 21st International Ski Days took place in Wolfenschiessen-Engelberg.

This tournament takes place regularly every two years.  The venues are either Switzerland, Austria, Germany, or South Tyrol.  This year, over 250 people, including 50 cheering guests, took part in the championships.  The participants competed against each other in the disciplines of cross-country skiing, snowboarding, and giant slalom. 

These Ski-tournaments are traditionally accompanied by a colourful support program and, of course, a church service, which was held this year by Bavaria’s Praeses, Fr. Christoph Huber.  Kolping is well known for cheerful leisure time activities and the “Ski Days” every two years are a highlight for all regional Kolping people who are winter sports enthusiasts.  At the end of this gathering, one was looking towards the year 2018, when South Tyrol will invite Kolping skiers to Bruneck-Kronplatz.
