This World Ski Alpine Championship has been different from all previous that I have seen from my childhood until now. From one part, I’ve been involved on a team of Google+ professionals with the focus to put businesses from the small town of Eagle County on the map and research the digital path of growing business during big events. You can expect the case study to be published until the 15th of April and I already know the huge impact it will have on the digital approach and strategy of businesses.
From the other part I have been following the social statuses of the racers mainly on Facebook and the shared posts were bringing such a live feeling of connectivity! A lot has changed, as TV broadcast is far not the only source of information from the event. And the TV broadcast itself was perfect!
My favourite moments from the races and links to the video, hear what these awesome girls and boys say:
The Giant Slalom Golden Medal for Anna Pfeninger (Austria), silver for Viktoria Rebensburg(Germany), bronze for Jessica Lindell-Vikarby(Sweeden) :http://youtu.be/BOz6c6dWG1w

I can’t mention all the unique moments, yet the crown was thrilling: http://youtu.be/rGMCqzdSMzo.
I’ll never forget the long minutes all people kept in silence while Ondrej Bank was receiving first aid and nobody interrupted the process. The names Vail, Beaver Creek, EagleCo, Colorado have been repeated again and again around the world over the last two weeks with great respect to the racers and the inspiration they are bringing for a fair play winning in sports and in life.
We are meeting the gorgeous racers for the FIS CUP Ladies in Bansko on the 28th of February.
Here is the teaser video of FIS Alpinehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hB9DsYT4zk0 and a link to Google maps for searched “hotels and restaurants in Bansko”. http://goo.gl/3Ccej4
