Karl Molitor (1920–2014) wasn’t just successful as an athlete: after his career in ski racing, he took over his parents sporting goods shop in Wengen and began making ski boots. He also played an active role in the international ski racing world: for 35 years, he managed the Lauberhorn ski race in his hometown Wengen.
«The new Molitor skis not only commemorate the ski racer, but they are also a tribute to his lifelong achievements,» says Beat von Allmen with pride. He and his wife Elisabeth took over Molitor Sports in 2012, and he is the driving force behind the new development. «Throughout his entire career, be it as a maker of ski boots or sports retailer, Karl Molitor was always aiming for products that aren’t just fun when they’re new, but that will last a long time.»
Modern ski slopes are made up mostly of machine-made snow. Skis have a better grip in man-made snow than they do in natural snow, but the edges wear out more quickly. Ski edges need to be sharpened much more often than they used to. That is why Molitor skis have a wider edge than conventional skis, so that they can be sharpened many more times. Not only that: you can get your Molitor skis tuned for free in the 50 plus sports shops across Switzerland that belong to the PSG Group*. Free servicing is included when you buy a pair of skis. In the Engadine, Molitor skis are available only at Skiservice.
*The PSG Premium Sports Group is an affiliation of leading sports shops across Switzerland; its 28 members have shops in over 50 locations. Skiservice Corvatsch co-founded the PSG Group.
