About this poster

A wooden ski and a ski stick painted with national flags point skywards and a Swiss flag waves in the cold mountain breeze. In the background, we find an idyllic scene that includes a number of Swiss symbols: a snowy mountaintop, a mountain village beneath a railway viaduct, a funicular, winter activities going on at an ice-skating rink, grand hotels and ski slopes. A Swiss pre-war winter scene painted by Alois Carigiet in 1937.
