I’ve seen some pretty awesome basketball settings – from the Elite 24 games on the Brooklyn Bridge to the college Carrier Classics that were played on an aircraft carrier – but nothing tops a basketball game on a glacier, 11,000 feet above sea level in Switzerland!
On Wednesday, Tony Parker and Swiss watchmaker Tissot hosted a basketball game between Parker’s French team ASVEL and a group of Swiss professional basketball players on top of the Aletsch glacier.
Here’s a few breathtaking photos of the event by Manuel Lopez (AP)
