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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
