Mammut is the official outfitter of one of the most renowned mountain sports and ski school in Switzerland from winter 2019/20 on. About 400 mountain guides and ski instructors in Zermatt will be equipped with products of the Eiger Extreme and the latest skiing collection. The contract was signed in mid-August 2018 at the foot of the iconic Matterhorn.
Mammut equips the mountain guides and ski instructors of the Zermatt alpine sports and ski school as part of this prestigious engagement. The local alpine sports specialists will be merging under the new name "Zermatters" in the beginning of 2019. Thanks to the Mammut collection they are ideally prepared for international visitors and challenges on ski slopes as well as mountain faces. “Mammut stands for Swiss mountain sports like no other brand: Mammut SWISS 1862 - that means heritage, safety and performance. These attributes also connect us with the mountain guides and ski instructors in Zermatt. I am very pleased about our new partnership and I am convinced that we will be a really strong team, "said Oliver Pabst, CEO of Mammut Sports Group AG.
United by tradition
The tourist region of Zermatt with the mythical Matterhorn as well as the Swiss outdoor brand Mammut share a rich history in heritage. Mammut's roots date back to 1862, when a rope-maker founded a small family business in a Swiss village. Just three years later, the Matterhorn was climbed for the first time. “Mammut is the ideal partner for us as the company shares the same values. Just like our sports and ski school, Mammut products stand for decades of expertise and the highest possible safety. The new equipment will help our experts achieve top performance in the mountains,” commented Benedikt Perren, Managing Director of Zermatters.
