Why does the Sovereign Prince hate global warming so? Because His Serene Highness loves him some skiing! On the 20th Prince Albert II hit the slopes in Sestriere, Turin, Italy as part of the 5th World Stars Ski Event. The occasional grimace aside, the Prince seemed to enjoy himself (didn't take home the prize unfortunately) and it was all for a good cause. Afterwards, as the notables and celebrities who participated gathered for dinner Albert II was all smiles. His Highness' love for winter sports has certainly been one of the constants in his life and he shows no signs of slowing down and is still quite an athlete for a man in his 50's.
