Imagine a rock concert featuring an international headliner with thousands of fans. Now, imagine that same concert, at 7,500 feet in elevation, in the snow. That’'s just what happens at the Silvretta Arena in Ischgl, Austria, on closing day. Musicians from around the world, including Elton John, Tina Turner, and Mariah Carey in years past, bring the Austrian Alps season to a close. This year, it was German soul singer Xavier Naidoo and rapper Kool Savas who shut down the season on April 1.
