Tschappina Heinzenberg world snow day Viamala | 16-22 January 2012
200 Event Participants
The FIS World Snow Day located on Heinzenberg was a big success. A network of various partners has contributed to this success. Even the weather was winter-like. On some days there was heavy snowfall. Everything together was the perfect winter atmosphere.

For the FIS World Snow Days located on Heinzenberg the organizer combined different individual events: the annual children's ski lessons, the traditional public and children's race and the World Day of the snowman on 18 January. Thus the World Snow Day expanded to a World Snow Week.

The main goal this week was to teach the children the joy of winter, the snow and the winter sports. Especially with the kids skiing lessons we work on Heinzenberg active for several years to inspire the children for the snow. On the occasion of the FIS World Snow Day, the local ski stars Mauro Caviezel (Alpine) and Coni Netzer (ski cross) visited the kids. Both were available for autographs.

In the week before the FIS World Snow Day, held on 18 January, the World Day of the snowman instead. The tourism organization Viamala used the snowman in the winter season as the official ambassador. The snowman was therefore also our unofficial mascot of the World Snow Days on Heinzenberg. The children were delighted not only in skiing. During the construction of snowmen they could live out their creativity.

The local media have taken the FIS World Snow Day positive note. Both the regional newspapers as well Televisiun Svizra Rumantscha, the national television station of the fourth Swiss national language, reported on the event.
