A true international city located at the crossroads of Europe, Geneva truly shines in the wintertime. Skiing, snowboarding, ice-skating, you name it: every winter sport is easy to try out or practice intensively in the Swiss Alps. Rest assured, however, that you will undoubtedly find some warm comfort as well in one of the several luxurious bars and restaurants that are characteristic of the Swiss hospitality.

Geneva is the first stop in the 2007 Pro Tour season. But not only the Pros will be enjoying themselves in this winter wonderland: the Pro Tour is above all a great weekend of Magic that brings you fantastic opportunities, highlighted by PTQs for the upcoming Pro Tours in Yokohama and San Diego. Try out the new Two-Headed Giant team format with your friends, win iPods, Magic snowboards, Magic fleece jackets, and much more! It’s Christmas all over again at Pro Tour–Geneva, so make sure you show up!
