2nd Smuggler Trophy

Start Smuggler Trophy
The season-opening event «Smuggler Trophy» took place for the first time on 27 November 2021. The 22 participating teams had to playfully smuggle «smuggler bags» on skis in the Samnaun ski area from Alp Trida to the border with Austria and back to Samnaun.

Review of the 1st «Smuggler Trophy»

The history of smugglers takes us back to the past: in exchange for butter, cheese, furs and cloth from the Paznaun valley, the people of Samnaun traded coffee, sugar, nylon stockings, flour and tobacco. Sugar (saccharin) was smuggled from Switzerland to Austria and Germany in the 19th and 20th centuries.

The participating smuggling teams, consisting of 2 to 4 people, followed the tracks of the legendary smugglers of yesteryear. The teams smuggled goods between Alp Trida and the border with Austria. Tricky tasks, coordination skills and lots of fun on the slopes awaited the teams. In the process, the teams repeatedly encountered customs officers who wanted to confiscate the smuggled goods, and accomplices who assisted in the smuggling.
