Tina Maze announces time-off

Today, Tina Maze has officially announced that she is taking time-out from her skiing career for one year. We’re certainly going to miss her, not to mention seeing her on the lilac podiums with her positive energy and occasional cartwheel at the finish line.

After 16 successful seasons participating in all disciplines, Tina understandably wants to give her body and mind a longer rest than just the short summer can give. She plans to use this time to finish her studies and secure her degree, however she wants to stay an active part within the Milka family.

Tina is an extraordinary sportswoman and undoubtedly one of the best female skiers in the world, holding 4 Olympic medals; 2 gold and 2 silver.

The 2012/2013 season saw her finishing with a record-breaking 2.414 points in total, overtaking Herman Maier. She currently holds 4 first places in the World Championships and 5 second places.
She has had an astounding 83 podium standings during her career so far.

We wish Tina the very best during her break and can’t wait for more great #milkamoments.

A great selection

Since the 2014/15 season is already over, we give you a selection of some of the greatest #milkamoments from the previous season:

Fantastic #milkamoments with our Milka Ski Stars

Posted by Milka Ski Stars on Mittwoch, 15. April 2015

 

Read Tina's full statement here:

Dear sports friends,

As I did not officially announce my plans for the future yet, I thought it would be the right time to write you this message.

After 16 long and successful seasons, practicing all disciplines, I feel that my body and my mind need a longer rest than usual. I will allow myself a one year break before taking any further decision.

I will use this opportunity to finish my degree and give some of my time for marketing and communication activities to my partners Stöckli, Milka, Fila, Alpina Watches, Feel Slovenia, Zlatarna Celje and other projects that I have in mind.

I would like here to sincerely thank you for your support all these years and I hope that you understand and respect my decision.

I will let you know about the future developments and wish you a nice summer

Sincerely Yours,

Tina

Le grand finale

The final of this year's alpine skiing season came to an end in Méribel, the small and picturesque skiing resort in the French Alps. Everything was set for an epic showdown in which Tina Maze and Anna Fenninger were separated by just a few points. For the first time in the World Cup’s history, the winner wasn’t determined until the very last run of the year!

For most of the 2014/15 season, the Slovenian took the lead – at times 300 points ahead –, but Anna Fenninger fought her way back with a strong finish, finally winning her second overall title.

Nevertheless, Tina Maze had an outstanding season, winning two Championship Gold's (downhill and alpine combined) in Vail, Beaver Creek. Not forgetting the other Milka Ski Stars; Michaela Kirchgasser, Sarka Strachova, Tessa Worley and Elena Curtoni. Strachova notched a couple of great results throughout the year, most notably the third place in this year's Slalom World Championships. Kirchgasser took third place in alpine combined and won her sixth medal overall. After some serious injury issues last year, France’s Tessy Worley made a strong comeback in the 2014/15 season while Italy's Elena Curtoni showed once more what a talent she is, establishing herself in the world's elite.

You can check out the live chat we had with Tina on Thursday the 19th March in the video below:

Milkamoments in Vail and Almaty

The bar was set high after the last FIS Alpine World Championships in Schladming where our Milka Ski Stars had performed extremely well, but their commitment, talent and passion paid off…

Together they took an impressive six medals. Out of these, Tina Maze gained three! After winning silver in the Super G, she gave an outstanding performance and took the gold medal in the downhill and Alpine combined.
Michi Kirchgasser also won a gold medal together with her team (Austria) and took the bronze medal in the discipline Alpine combined.
A special belated birthday gift came to Sarka Strachova, who won the bronze medal in the ladies’ slalom.

He showed the world his strength and recovery by winning two silver medals. This performance has resulted in his nomination for the World Championships in Falun, which start next week.

Let’s wish our Milka Ski Stars further luck for the next challenges.

Vail 2015

Our Milka Ski Stars had a fantastic start to the World Championships in Vail 2015.

Due to unfavorable wind conditions, the World Championships in Vail kicked off with difficulty yesterday. Nevertheless, our Milka Ski Stars rose to the challenge and gave us some very special #milkamoments. Tina Maze coped perfectly with the weather conditions and sensationally won the silver medal in the first competition in Vail 2015. This marked the seventh world championship medal for Tina, who remains in the lead on the overall World Cup scoreboard with 985 points. Elena managed to finish the Super-G with a respectable 10th place.

There is additional good news from our ski jumper Andreas Wellinger, who has fully recovered from his accident and faces his first competition in the FIS Junior World Championships in Almaty on Thursday.

Milka Moments in Cortina

Unfortunately the weather conditions and heavy snowfall in Cortina caused the races to be cancelled on Saturday. However, this was made up for by the intense races we saw on Friday, Sunday and Monday.

Tina Maze finished in the top 5 on Sunday and Monday when she achieved 4th place in the Super-G, and 5th place in the Downhill Race.

We send congratulations to Lindsey Vonn who made some great memories to remember with winning the Cortina Downhill and Super-G run to secure her 63nd World Cup victory, beating the former record holder, Austrian Annemarie Moser-Pröll, to become the most successful female skier.

We can’t wait to see our Milka Ski Stars on the slopes of St. Moritz next weekend - keep your fingers crossed!

Lilac spirit: a weekend full of #milkamoments!

After the runs in North America, Tina Maze proved that she is just as comfortable on European snow: The Giant Slalom Olympic champion came seventh in the first run in Are, and dominated the second one. Tina finished in a combined time of 2:23.84, her third victory this season. This gives Tina three wins in three disciplines this season!

She also extended the lead of the Overall World Cup with second place in Saturday’s slalom after Maria Pietilä-Holmner. With 560 points, Tina reigned supreme over Anna Fenninger with 303 points. - It was a fantastic day with lots of Milka moments including Michi Kirchgasser (5th) and Sarka Strachova (10th) also finishing in the Top 10.

We can’t wait to see our Milka Ski Stars on the slopes of Val d’Isere next weekend. Keep your fingers crossed and follow our live updates on twitter.com/milkaskistars.

Lake Louise

Remember when fighting for something very hard paid off?

Tina Maze won the season-opening World Cup downhill race on Friday in Lake Louise. She gained this victory with a time of 1:50:98, coming ahead of Anna Fenninger and Tina Weirather. It was her first ever win in Lake Louise and her second victory of the current season. What a fantastic Milka moment for Tina!

Reaching 3rd place on the Super G in Lake Louise on Sunday showed that Tina is undoubtedly an all-round talent. This takes Tina to the early lead in the overall standing with 380 points.

We wish our Milka Ski Stars all the best for the next races!

Start of the season

Remember when you enjoyed the first snow of the season? During the break, our Milka Ski Stars were training hard to prepare for the upcoming season.

It was an exciting start. Remember when Tessa Worley had her big injury? After taking a long time off, Tessa proved that she had truly recovered - at the season opener in Sölden, reaching 7th place. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for the next races. So great to see her back on the slopes!

A huge delight was Tina Maze’s first slalom win of the new season in Levi. Tina won with a two-run time of 1 minute, 55.15 seconds, over Frida Hansdotter and Kathrin Zettel. It's the 4th victory in a slalom for Tina. Her special prize was a reindeer, which she named Victor. We’re looking forward to upcoming VICTORies.

Andreas Wellinger proved his talent with the lilac helmet with his first jump at the world cup opener in Klingenthal, Germany. On the 23rd of November, Andreas achieved third place in the individual jumping. Furthermore, the 19-year-old had actually won the team competition with the German team the day before. Unfortunately he had an accident in his latest jump, but with minor injuries we hope to see him back soon. Show your support to Andreas with our #rememberwhen!

In Aspen our Milka Ski Stars made it big again! At the giant slalom Tina ranked forth and Michi took 5th place, the latter having been incredibly exciting after a couple of unsuccessful races. In the slalom they also managed to take great positions: Sarka came 6th, Michi 7th and Tina 9th!

Thanks to Tinas great performance she currently ranks third in the Overall Cup, while Michi is doing well in 10th position. The season has started pretty well – here’s to further great races!

Congratulations to the great performance! @sarkastrachova #6, @michikirchi #7 and @tinamaze83 #9! #milkamoment #fis #ski

Press conference Sölden

There were so many wonderful moments during our annual press conference in Sölden. The Milka Ski Stars were greeted by lots of surprises while receiving their helmets for the upcoming season, which were handed over by some very special people to the ski stars, such as Renate Götschl and Irene Curtoni.

Although there was only space for 200 people in the press conference hall, almost 7000 people joined via live stream. As with previous years, the Skieur d’Or trophy was handed over and this year’s lucky winner was Anna Fenninger (AUT).

The event in Sölden was also the start of this year’s #rememberwhen campaign. The aim of the campaign is to bring the Milka Ski Stars and their fans even closer together. Whether it was your first set of skis on which you tentatively edged your way down the pistes, that red ski suit you were so proud of, or the skiing idol you had a poster of, everyone has skiing-related memories which spring to mind at certain times.

Many members of the Milka community share similar memories or dreams. Like the Ski Stars, every one of them has faced challenges, experienced failure and celebrated at least one triumph. Who could forget Maria Höfl-Riesch’s horrific crash in Lenzerheide that shocked every one of us? Or Tina Maze falling to her knees with joy on winning the downhill skiing at the Olympics last February.

It is precisely these emotional moments from the alpine skiing circus where Milka is recording this year that offer fans a platform upon which to share similar events from their life with the community. Anyone who has experienced a similar situation can share their story using the hashtags #rememberwhen and #Milkamoments. This will bring the brand-fans and the Milka Ski Stars even closer together, enabling them to enjoy a congenial sense of togetherness away from the competitive environment of racing.

#rememberwhen …you gave everything you had but still did not achieve your aim? …you enjoyed the first snow of the season? …you fell or needed help? …you won and could not have been prouder?

Participation Anyone who dares to be tender and share their stories with the community using #rememberwhen or #Milkamoments can join Milka in creating unforgettable Milka moments.

Check out our video about the press conference here on youtube or you can read and watch more at this german article on news.at.

Tina in ELLE

Tina Maze has been featured on the cover of ELLE Slovenia recently.
Watch a great "behind-the-scenes" video from the shooting here:

http://www.elle.si/lifestyle/novice2/tina-maze/
 

Welcome - to the official site of the Milka Ski Stars!

The Milka Ski Stars are a team of world-class skiers, sponsored by the tender alpine milk chocolate brand Milka. Over the years Milka had become one of the major winter sports sponsors. Which other sport would fit the brand better?


 Both Milka and Alpine Skiing have their roots in the mountains, which is why Milka has been busily engaging in Winter sports since 1995. Besides sponsoring professional ski races Milka supports a team of world-class skiers. These Milka Ski Stars are an international team of top athletes, all competing in lilac helmet.

This site is dedicated to keeping you informed on their individual careers and achievements, latest news as well as information and pictures about their “tender” site.

 

Story of

Tina Maze

Tina Maze is a free spirit, a person that knows who she is and tries to be nothing more than this: herself.

She adores simplicity, beauty and intelligence and describing herself as precise – a quality that not only makes her an outstanding skier but also plays an important role in her passion for writing, photography and music.

As one of the best skiers in the world, she gained the most points at the World Cup then she did during season 12/13. Tina is used to make opportunities turn into gold, which is exactly what she did with her first pop-song "My Way Is My Decision", released in 2012 reaching the number-one spot in the Slovenian charts.

Tina was born on May 2nd, 1983 in Slovenia. She loves skiing at Cortina and Whistler and relaxes best when sleeping away the day or enjoying her favourite Milka chocolate: Milka Milkinis.

Website: http://www.tinamaze.com/
 

Story of

Sarka Strachova

Sarka Strachova lives her credo „Now and here I create my future“ very successfully!

She is a multi-talented person with a lot of interests, using her spare time for horseriding, reading, dancing, jin yoga and of course spending time with her husband.

For her there are so many things to like about live: laughing, the silence on a mountain or the joy of great moments, like when she won the bronze medal at the Olympic Games in Vancouver in 2010.

Sarka was born on February 11th, 1985 in the Czech Republic. Her favourite ski region is Are (Sweden). When it comes to chocolate, she enjoys Milka Toffee Whole nuts.

Website: http://www.sarkastrachova.com/
 

Story of

Michaela Kirchgasser

Michi Kirchgasser starts everyday with a smile.
But of course that‘s easy for her living in what she refers to as one of the most beautiful places on earth: Filzmoos, Austria. Her home country Austria also brought her luck in 2012, when she was very successful at the Worldchampionship in Schladming.

When asked to describe herself, Michi explained that she's a bright person. In her free time she goes hiking, reads a lot and keeps in contact with her friends.

Michi was born on March 18th, 1985. Although she enjoys many ski regions, Filzmoos in Austria is naturally where she feels most at home. What she enjoys most? A good cup of hot chocolate in front of her cockle stove or even better: a bar of Milka Alpenmilchcreme just for her own!

Website: http://www.kirchi.com/
 

Story of

Elena Curtoni

Elena Curtoni with her italian lifestyle, continually challenging herself and pursuing the most ambitious goals.

For her this strategy definitely works out very well as she is considered to be one of the world's most promising young stars in international skiing. No matter what Elena is up to, she tries to turn it into a good time while minding the importance of personal integrity and honesty.

In her free time she focuses on her creativity and paints or draws. She relaxes with movies or American TV shows.

Elena was born on February 3rd, 1991. Her favourite ski region is Les Trois Vallées (France) and her choice of chocolate is Milka Milkinis.

Website: http://elenacurtoni.com/
 

Story of

Maria Höfl-Riesch

Maria Höfl-Riesch already won many races in her career:
She is ranked as the 2nd best skier in the world, is a double Olympic champion (Vancouver 2010) and won several Worldchampionship and Worlcup podiums.

As much as she enjoys winning she feels the importance of always remaining true to herself and learning from setbacks. In her free time Maria enjoys good food, getting plenty of sleep, massages and new shoes. When asked to describe herself in a word she simply answers “happy”. What more do you need to say about a person?

Maria was born on November 24th, 1984. Her favourite ski region is Garmisch Patenkirchen, where she was born, raised and learnt to ski. Maria loves Milka Crispello Vanilla.

Website: http://www.maria.com.de/
 

Story of

Tessa Worley

Tessa Worley, half french, half australian, is not into worries. Instead she prefers to be happy, having lots of fun and smiling the day away.

She is a real energy bundle, which she proofed with her win at the Schladming’s world championship giant slalom in 2012. Still there remains enough energy for a very active private live, filled with many different kinds of sports, spending time with family and friends, travelling, studying, reading, listening to music and much more.

Tessa was born on October 4th, 1989. Her favourite ski regions are the Dolomites and her home resort Le Grand-Bornand in France. As she likes all Milka types it is hard for her to choose a favorite – but if she had to she’d go for Milka Daim or Milka Caramel.

Andreas Wellinger

 

Story of

Andreas Wellinger

When asked to describe himself, Andreas simply uses the word “crazy”. His motto in life, “No Risk, No Fun!", is clearly evident his favorite ways of spending free time, namely hiking and surfing.
When Andreas finds himself in need of relaxation, he can often be found hanging out with friends in the sun or watching movies. He is a big fan of the Ocean’s Eleven series.

One thing he can’t stand is boredom, while another is not having any chocolate at hand. This leads us directly to Andreas' favorite Milka type: he loves Milka à la Vanille-Pudding! Andreas was born on 28th August 1995 and is currently living in Germany, Weißbach in Bavaria to be precise. His favorite ski jumping hill is located much further north, in Kuusmao (Finland).

It almost goes without saying that his greatest moment as a professional ski jumper was winning the gold medal in Sochi.

The tender side of skiing

Alpine skiing became tender almost 20 years ago. It began in 1995 with the cancellation of the FIS Alpine Ski World Championship in Sierra Nevada. The decision was taken to hold the event in Lienz, which is where the first inflatable Milka cow was placed alongside a ski slope.

Today, you rarely see any Ski World Cup or Ski World Championship race without the familiar Milka branding in the background, while the world has seen a variety of leading international skiers wearing the famous lilac helmet. Among them, the likes of Ingrid Jacquemod, Janica Kostelic, Luc Alphand, Bruno Kernen, Kristian Ghedina Sonja Nef, Jure Kosir and Hermann Maier, to name just a few.

These shared mountain roots give Milka a perfect backdrop to present the brand to the world.

Maintaining sponsorship of winter sports has therefore become an essential part of the Milka brand. Milka is extremely proud of the Milka Ski Stars, not merely due to their excellent sporting achievements, but also because each individual personality fits so well, making them the brand’s most important ambassadors.

Maria Höfl-Riesch is retiring from ski sports

As one of the most successful athletes, she shaped skiing like few others. Maria Höfl-Riesch announced her retirement from ski sports at the age of 29. During the seven years in which Milka supported her carrier, we formed a special friendship with Maria.

Milka says “thank you”

This long lasting partnership shows how well both the athlete and the brand can profit from a long lasting sponsorship engagement. “We thank Maria for seven years of committed work together” said Merle Meier-Holsten, responsible for Milka's marketing in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. “It's always a pity when a successful sports career ends. We wish Maria all the best for her future!”

Maria Höfl-Riesch announced her retirement three weeks after the Olympic games in Sotchi, where she won gold in combination and silver in super-g. At the age of 16 she had already participated in her first worldcup run. Among other achievements, she is three times Olympic champion and two times world champion.

Season Kick Off

Milka looks back on a long and successful winter sport tradition, and, this year, the popular chocolate brand is the winter sports sponsor for the 18th time. Alongside the six Milka Ski Stars, Milka is looking forward to the upcoming, and very exciting, World Cup!

The bar is set high, since the previous season of the Alpine World Ski Championships in Schladming was the most successful so far for the Milka Ski stars. Effort and good performances deserve to be rewarded, and so – for the first time – Milka donated 1€ to Österreichische Sporthilfe for each won World Cup point. In total, the Milka Ski stars gained a remarkable 4,814 World Cup points, which is the same amount that Milka donated to Österreichische Sporthilfe to help support young athletes.
