Winter isn’t just the season of comfort, but also the perfect opportunity to spend time with your loved ones and venture out into the snow.
Every year in winter, we look forward to new skiing adventures, as well as spending many a cozy hour in front of the fireplace. Short days turn into long nights and activities on the slopes are followed by a desire for warmth and good company.
ONE WINTER, MANY OPPOSITES
In winter, we love the refreshing cold air outside as much as the cozy warmth inside. We appreciate quiet evenings just as much as our active hours on the snow. While some prefer to venture out on ski tours or snowshoe hikes on their own, others love to join likeminded friends for mulled wine at a mountain restaurant or take the whole family out for an exhilarating toboggan ride. Afterwards, everyone congregates in the warmth of the indoors to enjoy a relaxing evening with a game of Monopoly or an invigorating session in the sauna.
After all, the winter is a time of opposites: cold and warm, active and calm, alone and together. That’s why our winter equipment should be just as flexible – from early morning to late at night.
THE PERFECT BASE LAYER FROM ODLO
During the cold season, if you’re well prepared, you’ve already won half the battle. If you want to be active in the great outdoors even in sub-zero temperatures, it’s best to include many layers in your outfits. You’ll find the perfect base layer at Swiss brand ODLO. Its functional underwear is made of merino wool and guarantees natural heat and moisture regulation to keep you comfortably dry while feeling velvety soft on the skin. For running training in winter, tours on the glacier, or carving on the slopes – with ODLO, freedom of movement comes as standard.
Since 1946, Swiss company Odlo has been known for high-quality apparel that guarantees top performance and functionality even in adverse conditions. In keeping with their motto “Always one step ahead”, the pioneer of functional sports underwear is continuously developing new innovative technologies for active people. At Odlo, you will find the perfect sports companions in the form of underwear and clothing designed for running, hiking, trekking, cycling, the gym, yoga, skiing, snowboarding, and cross-country skiing.
ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE FROM STÖCKLI
As soon as you’re ready for the next adventure, clip into a pair of precision-made skis from Swiss company Stöckli. Their Montero AX model is all about versatility, taking you not only across perfectly prepared slopes but also through fresh powder and heavy spring slush. Thanks to their agility, the playful all-rounders are ideal for short- to medium-length turns while ensuring stability with a waist width of 80 mm. The high-precision design doesn’t just make for a perfect first line, but also a perfect final turn on your valley descent, when you’re already looking forward to a relaxed end to the day.
At its factory in Malters, Switzerland, Stöckli builds masterpieces large and small in the form of skis. The goal is the perfect skis for a perfect day on the slopes. Be it materials, technology, construction, or design: at Stöckli, everything has to be perfectly coordinated. This is how the traditional company ensures that you feel the unique ride of a Stöckli ski with every turn, just like the professional athletes, whose sophisticated skis are produced in exactly the same way.
COZY WARMTH FROM DAGSMEJAN
As much as we like putting on our layers to go skiing in the morning, it’s just as enjoyable to take them off afterwards. Change straight into Dagsmejan’s super-soft sleepwear and enjoy the incredibly comfortable and breathable natural fibers of the merino pyjamas from the brand’s Stay Warm collection. The innovative natural fibers provide cozy warmth without causing you to overheat, even when you’re curled up in front of the flickering fire. All of the Dagsmejan designs have been specially developed for what you need most during sleep and accommodate every one of your up to 40 nightly movements – for relaxed evenings and a restful night’s sleep.
The third company in this collab is Swiss sleep expert Dagsmejan. The brand combines Nordic design with Swiss innovation to create one-of-a-kind functional sleepwear. Breathable, featherlight, and extremely soft – these are the features that all models from their different collections have in common. Dagsmejan sleepwear not only helps us sleep longer and deeper, but also promotes the regeneration of our muscles, for example after a long day on the slopes.
The Swiss companies ODLO, Stöckli, and Dagsmejan don’t just have uncompromising quality standards in common. They also deliver the optimal conditions for warmth, comfort, and adventure during the winter season.
