WHAT SKI MOUNTAINEERING MEANS TO US

When the cold air and white snow arrive for the winter season, we will always be ready. Ski-mountaineering is more than a sport to us, it is an expression of freedom. 

Ski mountaineering means you pay the price of sweating, because you've skinned up over the nice and fresh powder, only to enjoy the descend that much more. You need to be fit for ski mountaineering, but you also need the right equipment. Our technical products are reliable and durable and above all, they guarantee your safety. Our specific ski mountaineering apparel is light and strong, and is engineered to keep you warm, dry and comfortable for hours and hours of intense activity. All of our backpacks, are some of the lightest on the market and employ state of the art, cutting edge technologies. We've tried to make it as easy as possible for you to have the best time exploring the fresh snow in your favorite mountains.

Time to get ready. Time to go savoring infinite slopes of untouched, pure and deep powder, something worth living for.

WHAT SPEED HIKING MEANS TO US

Speed hiking: rapid hiking, moving quickly for long distances over technical, rocky terrain both on and off trail means improved physical fitness, increased energy, and inspiration for living a healthier life. Travelling fast means that you can cover greater distances and see more the same time period. It’s all about the inherent joys and freedoms of going fast and light and broadening your horizons. The Dolomites, with their majestic summits and beautiful valleys are an amazing environment to train in. They inspire us to produce the highest performing products.

Speed hiking footwear is built for fast-paced, rapid activities. Their lightweight designs mean that there is less weight to for your legs to lift, but they still offer good grip, traction and support. Along with footwear, a comfortable pack is your most important kit choice. The lower the volume and the less it weighs before you put your kit in it, the better. Our speed hiking packs are built with split shoulder straps and ventilated carry systems to keep your back dry. Exploring new trails, training for winter or just getting out there to see how far you can go means that you need lightweight breathable clothing and sufficient weather protection. Our speed hiking styles are engineered for dynamic movement to support you when you are moving fast. They feature wicking fabrics and active insulation making them ideal for highly aerobic done-in-a-day activities, even in bad weather.

EQUIPMENT YOU MIGHT NEED FOR SAVORING UNTOUCHED, PURE AND DEEP POWDER.

“STEEP SKIING IS AN ART OF SEEKING OUT THE BEST CONDITIONS, ALLOWING YOU TO SKI A LINE IN PURE ENJOYMENT ON EVERY TURN. BECAUSE, IN THE END, IT MATTERS LESS ABOUT WHAT YOU SKI BUT ALWAYS ABOUT HOW YOU SKI IT.”

OUR ATHLETES’ STORIES

WHY NOT?

It is early in the morning. The sunshine, which has just popped out above the plateau is beginning to caress the Pale’s tips. Some rays slice the terse air; crampons, clipped onto boots which hardly weight a kilo and a half, spurt up blue, minuscule fragments of ice.

KAMCHATSKI ADVENTURES

“Guys, where we heading next spring?” Arnaud is the connection between Vincent and me. We’re at the Diablerets glacier on a snowy day in January. Racing downhill, between the descents, we throw out ideas: “Russia could be good, we don’t know it that well.”
