Your SNOW-HOW! Team

Let's be honest: Breathtaking powder runs and spectacular tricks in the fun park are simply impressive. But for most of us, the adventure on the good old, sometimes more, sometimes less perfectly groomed piste is enough. Exactly for these skiers, Salomon has developed the S/Force models!

Elan Insomnia - power skis for power women

Skis that are specially adapted to women's anatomy are now an integral part of any good ski range. The Slovenian brand Elan has played a major role in this development. As early as 16 years ago, the innovative ski manufacturer, which is the only large-scale manufacturer still producing its entire range in the Alps, discovered this topic for itself and its female customers.
We continue with our blog series "What is actually...?". You're looking for a ski and don't know exactly which one is right for you? Today we're going high! We show you the touring skis!

Freeride: The V in Völkl stands for variety!

Freeriding and everything that goes with it is very diverse. From extended touring ski hikes to adventurous descents in knee-deep powder and pristine slopes to tricks and jumps that turn the whole mountain into a playground. There are plenty of possibilities. Völkl has the right skis in its range for all these possibilities - you don't believe it? We'll show you!
It's a challenge to find the right ski touring gear. Especially with the bindings it is getting complicated: Which binding do I need? Which skis and boots go best with which binding? Wouldn't it be easier to have a binding that is compatible with everything? Salomon wants to present just such a binding with the individually adjustable S/Lab Shift MNC. Let's check whether it lives up to this claim...

Rossignol Experience: happiness guaranteed!

Skiing makes you happy - if the equipment is right. Rossignol has completely revised the Experience all-mountain ski series for all skiers who don't want to be tied down in their skiing style and who want to experience the entire ski area. The result: skis that do whatever you feel like.

Ski boots from Nordica are at the forefront when it comes to combining comfort with sportiness. The Sportmachine and Speedmachine series already manage this combination almost perfectly. With the new HF series, the Italian manufacturer is now also launching boots on the market that are as comfortable as rear entry skis, but a lot sportier....
Activities that involve exploring the great outdoors with sporting challenges are becoming increasingly popular. These include freeriding and ski touring. As with hardly any other sport, the right equipment is crucial, because the wrong material means not only less fun in alpine terrain but also higher risk. The market for protective equipment in particular is currently under great pressure to innovate, and avalanche backpacks in particular are becoming increasingly popular.
Our store manager Kai Pagel is himself an enthusiastic freerider and had the opportunity to test the avalanche backpacks of Scott's Patrol series last winter. In our interview we talk to him about the fascination of freeriding, what to look out for and his experiences with the Scott Patrol.

Atomic Hawx Professional: Boot fitting at it's best

Individually customizable ski boots are nowadays indispensable in the specialized trade - and with the all-familiar methods of inner boot and shell fitting, very good results can already be achieved. But of course there is a difference to the ski boots of the pros, because here an enormous effort is made so that everything fits to the millimeter. But with the newly developed Atomic Hawx Professional and custom insoles from Sidas, recreational skiers can use solutions that could also meet the demands of the pros. We explain how it works...

Giro and the perfect ski helmet?

In recent years (thank goodness!) there has been a growing awareness of the importance of good ski helmets in protecting against serious injury. Occasionally, you only see skiers without helmets on the slopes. At the same time, ski helmets have been steadily optimized. Helmets have become better and better. The American helmet manufacturer Giro has played a major role in this development. What makes Giro helmets so special?
With the Disruption series, K2 wants to destroy existing structures to create something new. And, by the way, take skiing to a new level. We take a look at the skis in the new series and check whether the hype is justified.
