Swiss made: Defining image of an intrepid airborne skier, with the Helvetian flag providing a background motif. Slalom competitions down a short, zig-zag course marked by pairs of flags, through which the downhill racer must pass, are an admirable test of control. Methods of positioning, patrolling and safeguarding downhill routes were devised with the collaboration of the Davos Ski Club at adjoining Parsenn. A development that marked the beginning of piste skiing and led to a revolution in ski techniques and Swiss tourism.
