Working in the Alps
Every year in the middle of January, the picturesque mountain village of Wengen up in the Swiss highlands takes center stage in the world of winter sports. More than 37,000 spectators from near and far gather at the International Lauberhorn Races (Lauberhornrennen) to cheer on competing skiers as they swish down slalom and downhill courses. This year, for the event’s 89th edition, Coople was also in the Alps to give a helping hand.
