“Just got done with my 3rd year at the High 5 in Verbier. Its a fun event put on by Carlsberg where there are 5 events, GS, Skicross, speed trap, parallel sl and triathlon(sledding running and hitting a target..) Lots of the guys and girls from the world cup come out and have a good time! Tina Maze won the girls division for the 2nd time in row! It was a sunny fun day of spring skiing!
