The Longines Rising Ski Star award was created by the luxury Swiss watch company to encourage the discovery of young ski-racing talent on the FIS Alpine World Cup circuit.
The award is made after the completion of the World Cup ski season, normally in the middle of March, and is given to both male and female skiers. The male skier must be under 23 and the female skier must be under 21 to be eligible for the prizes, which are made up of a Longines watch, 20,000 Swiss Francs and, of course, a trophy, for both of the winners.
