Stöckli Skitest


With the Matterhorn Testcenter, Zermatt Bergbahnen AG emphasises its passion and support for snow sports. In addition to perfectly groomed slopes, a top selection of equipment can be found directly on the slopes. The modern infrastructure with the large selection of skis turns the Matterhorn Testcenter into something really unique. 

From the latest ski models for the coming season, to a high-tech grinding machine for perfect edges and bases, to the history of skis and the Stöckli brand, a visit to the new Matterhorn Testcenter on Trockener Steg is an exciting experience for curious winter sports guests.

Stöckli skis are one of a kind and are made from the highest end materials such as wood, bamboo and carbon fiber. Have you always wanted to know how Stöckli skis are made? You are always welcome to visit the Stöckli ski manufacturing facility in Malters, near Lucerne. Find out more about our ski manufacturing facility tours here
