Auction for the benefit of Skiers Left.

The fundraising foundation Skiers Left – Mikaela’s Memory works to raise awareness of and change the attitude to the risks skiers are exposed to during off-piste skiing. Everyone who works within the foundation loves skiing and does not want to discourage anyone from going. On the contrary, we want to show that it is possible to find very fun skiing with simple means and basic knowledge, regardless of conditions, which is also safe. Instead of relying on their avalanche equipment, we want to equip Swedish skiers with the right knowledge and attitude so nobody to have to put their lives at risk for the sport we love.
