Aspen, United States, February 20, 2023 — IWC Schaffhausen’s “Friend of the Brand” and two-time Olympic gold medal freestyle skier Eileen Gu took to the slopes of Aspen, Colorado, with young skiers. Indicative of her ongoing commitment to inspiring future generations through her sport, Gu participated in a special ski training day organized by the Swiss luxury watchmaker and accompanied by local community skiers.

Gu joined the IWC family in August 2021 and became the youngest Olympic champion in freestyle skiing after winning two gold medals and a silver medal at Beijing’s 2022 Winter Olympics. A sought-after model and student at the prestigious Stanford University, the skier is a powerful advocate for improving representation and inclusion in her sport. She wants to inspire millions of young kids to pursue their ski dreams.

“I was so excited to spend the day on the mountains with this group of incredible skiers!” explained Gu. “So much about skiing comes down to confidence. It’s a super personal and expressive sport, so the more time you devote, the more it pays off in your ability. It was fantastic to share my passion - and some tips and tricks - with the young men and women here. I hope they got inspired to follow their dreams.”

While in action on the mountain, Gu chose to wear IWC Schaffhausen’s Pilot’s Watch Chronograph. This modern take on a classic design has an elegant, compact, 41-mm size stainless-steel case, a blue dial, and an IWC-manufactured movement.
