Canada Ski Cross Team on campus

A brief stop on their World Cup Tour, Le Rosey had the pleasure of welcoming the Canadian Ski Cross Team to the Gstaad campus this winter for students to learn from Olympic and World Champion athletes and gain a better understanding of all aspects, from the physical to the mental, of competing at this level. Though skiing was ruled out due to weather conditions, the Rosey and Canadian teams took to the ice together, first in curling for some friendly competition amongst peers, and then in ice-hockey against the local Gstaad Hockey Club for a match the same evening. The visit was an incredible opportunity for Roséens to play side by side with world and Olympic ski-cross champions, including Kevin Drury, Chris del Bosco and Marielle Thompson, as well as seeing some of Thompson’s own medal collection: gold from the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics and gold from the 2019 World Championship.
