Art on Ice 2018: good home for champions

You know as well as we do: Art on Ice is always a treat, for both the skaters and the audience – and this year’s edition was no exception. And we are bringing you all the (beautiful) action in Zurich, on March 4th – and you’ll surely recognize the guests. Among them, Olympic, World and European medalists, because Art on Ice is such a good home for champions.
