Voice of the mountains

At ORTOVOX, everything revolves around protection. Protection in the mountains through innovative products and the sharing of knowledge – and the protection of nature through socially and environmentally sustainable actions.

The South German company produces emergency equipment, backpacks and functional apparel made from and with sustainable wool for discerning mountain athletes – and has done so since 1980.

Innovative equipment and the comprehensive training measures offered as part of the ORTOVOX SAFETY ACADEMY, with its practical courses and digital training tools, all contribute to saving lives by making mountain sports that much safer.

A whirlwind, worldwide tour of ski stories.

Meet 19-year-old Ekaterina, Ski Mountaineering Junior World Champion who trains on Russian volcanoes. How about an 87-year-old elite skier preparing for his very last tracks back home in Colorado?

Take some time to get properly acquainted with The Chairlift; this isn’t just a hop-on hop-off relationship, after all… it’s where romance blossoms, and important equipment is dropped.

And join a group of young ski tourers, who get hut bound in the Otzal Alps when Covid strikes in the towns below. Do they descend to a pandemic, or stay in the high snowfields forever?
