Verbier Ski Week-end, January 18-20th, 2013
Never believe weather forecasts…! What was supposed to be a stormy week-end ended up in powder snow, sun and great fun! Over 50 INSEADers across generations and continents made it to attend this unique event… From fresh graduates all the way to early INSEAD generations met for skiing, drinking, eating and dancing… Zurich, Geneva, Basel were represented but not only… Alumni from Paris, London, Moscow, Canada, Sweden and more came all the way to ski & celebrate with special guests like Rolf Abdon, Chairman IAF Board of Trustees, and Daniel Labrecque, ex-IAA President. On Friday everyone met for dinner at ‘Al Capone’. Saturday was the sports day with 6 groups split between the “On-Pistes” and “Off-Pistes” skiers while others went for a beautiful snow-shoeing escape in Nature. In the evening, everyone met for drinks at ‘Aux Croquignoles’ and Andrew Hunziker, Swiss President ex-officio and member of the Swiss Board, generously offered the drinks on behalf of the INSEAD Alumni Association Switzerland. Dinner at “La Channe Valaisanne” was simply delicious with a choice of Cheese Fondue or Fondue Chinoise. Leila Ojjeh, President of the INSEAD Alumni association Geneva made a little speech to welcome everyone and thank Sonja Baile (MBA 07’J) for the fantastic organization thanks to whom a tradition started 15 years ago by ex-President Denis Harran and Audrey Barcha has been continued and given this year’s success is not ready to stop!
