For the last nine years, LANGE has sought to honor the femininity of women skiers on the world circuit by giving them the opportunity, in a photo shoot, to express their personality and become an Icon.

After Julia Mancuso in 2007, Resi Stiegler in 2008, Maria Hoefl-Riesch in 2009, Manuela Moelgg in 2010, Dominique Gisin in 2011, Federica Brignone in 2012 and Lara Gut in 2013, LANGE is proud to accompany Tina Maze this winter in her quest for new successes on the world stage and at the Sochi Olympic Games.

The FIS Alpine Ski World Cup is the top international circuit of Alpine Skiing competitions staged annually. It is considered the premier competition in alpine ski racing together with the quadrennial Olympic Winter Games and the biennial FIS Alpine World Ski Championships. Some experts event consider winning the World Cup to be athletically a more valuable title than winning gold at the Olympic Winter Games or the World Championships, since it requires a competitor to ski at an extremely high level in several events throughout the season, and not just in one race. Today, the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup races are held primarily at famous ski resorts in the European Alps, along with regular stops in Scandinavia, North America, and Far East Asia. Competitors attempt to score a maximum of points during the season in five events: slalom, giant slalom, super-G, downhill and super combined. The fifth event, super-combined, was introduced in 2005 and generally consists of a shorter downhill race and a one-run slalom. Sometimes the downhill is replaced by a super-G. Alpine was added to the Olympic winter schedule in 1936.
