12th Verbier High Five By Carlsberg

Once again, Verbier will be "The place to be"; "The place to party". Some of the best skiers of the pro-circuit will be present in Verbier, on the 2nd April 2011, for what will be the 12th Verbier High Five By Carlsberg. Alberto Tomba, Erik Guay, Justin Murisier, Fränzi Aufdenblatten, Federica Brignone, Edgar Grospiron and Didier Cuche confirm their presence at Verbier on 2 April. They will join some of "Carlsberg’s Friends" of which three have already confirmed their attendance: the famous French skier, Luc Alphand (his 10th participation) will take part in ther acing, whilst another legendary Swiss downhiller Didier Défago (his 7th participation) and Britain’s lovely Chemmy Alcott (her 5th participation), both of whom have injuries this season, will join the Verbier High Five as ambassadors by taking part in the entertainment and partying. Another first for the 2011 Verbier High Five by Carlsberg, is the presence of Alberto Tomba. This living legend from Bologna, Italy, whose medal count includes three Olympic golds and two World Championship golds, will be one of Carlsberg’s Friends. He will contribute his characteristic humour to the day’s activities. Alberto will be joined by Edgar Grospiron, the "Albertville Gold" moguls skier from France and who skied at the very first High Five, back in 2000. The programme of the Verbier High Five commences in Verbier’s Place Centrale at 18:00hrs on Friday 1st April, with an Opening Party and the presentation of the Pros. At 10:00hrs on Saturday 2nd, five races are planned (Giant Slalom, "Speedtrap" Downhill, Skier-cross, the Carlsberg Triathlon and the concluding Parallel Slalom). Throughout, the public will have the chance to be near the stars whilst the best of the amateur racers will make up pro-am teams for the Parallel Slalom. Following the racing and prize-giving, comes the "After–ski" party to be held at Pub Montfort, where the Pros enjoy to party with their fans. And, to conclude the Verbier High Five by Carlsberg, the Pros will join Verbier’s annual Charity Dinner, for the benefit of "Right To Play".
