YOG on the Road at the Alpine Ski World Cup Opener

The YOG on the Road team kicked off the 2011/2012 season in style last month with an access-all-areas trip to Sölden ahead of the Alpine Ski World Cup opener.

Itching to get back on the snow, we started the day at the crack of dawn only to find ourselves facing a white-out at the top of the slopes. Still, with the help of Young Ambassador and three-time Olympian Ana Jelusic, we got safely down in time for the press conference with YOG Ambassador Lindsey Vonn and her new BFF Yoggl (who couldn’t resist a cheeky hug with the Olympic champion).

With the skiers enjoying a well-earned rest day before the big race, Ana introduced us to some of her friends from the racing circuit, including former slalom world champion Kalle Palander from Finland, who took a shine to our Yoggl mascot, and Austria’s Michaela Kirchgasser, who can’t wait for the first ever Winter Youth Olympic Games next year.

Thanks for being an awesome tour guide Ana, and we hope you all enjoy the film as much as we enjoyed making it!
