Air Zermatt helmet for the best young skiers

Anna Clerc and Florent Pralong are the two young skiers from Valais who have made the most progress in the 2022/23 season. Air Zermatt has now expressed its appreciation for these promising talents from Ski Valais by presenting the two young skiers with specially designed helmets in the colours of Air Zermatt. In addition, Anna and Florent will bear the title "Rookie of the Year" for the next twelve months.

Together with Ski Valais, Air Zermatt is actively involved in promoting up-and-coming ski talent from Valais. As part of this partnership, Anna Clerc and Florent Pralong, two of last season's top skiers, had the opportunity to visit the Air Zermatt base. During their visit to Zermatt, the young ski talents were given an exciting insight into the activities within the helicopter company.

The Air Zermatt rescue crew also demonstrated life-saving first aid measures to the young skiers on how to react correctly in the event of an accident on the piste. To round off this "First aid on the ski piste" workshop, the young athletes were given the opportunity to practise a heart massage on a rescue dummy.

In the upcoming ski season, Anna Clerc from Ski Team Anzère Crans-Montana and Florent Pralong from Ski Team Anniviers can proudly wear a blue helmet from Air Zermatt labelled "Rookie of the Year". This award not only emphasises their outstanding achievements, but also their potential as the promising future of skiing in Valais.
