16th International Walser Ski Championships
Have you heard of the "Walser"?
From the end of the 12th to the middle of the 14th century the "Walser" emigrated from Valais (today in Switzerland) crossing the mountain passes to settle in the neighbouring mountain valleys in Switzerland, Italy, Tyrolia and Vorarlberg - the most eastern settlement is the "Kleinwalsertal". And from time to time people of Walser settlements come together for a meeting, a festival or a ski race!
... mir send parat ond gfraibet önsch uf aib!
Welcome to Kleinwalsertal
We are very happy that the International Walser ski Championships 2019 will be held here and we welcome many Walser and Walser friends from near and far with us, in the most eastern of the Walser communities!
... schgiifaara, ässa, triicha, hängera & gniassa
We wish all participants an unforgettable and sporty weekend with many great encounters!
