A PERFECT MATCH: MARCO ODERMATT AND STÖCKLI EXTEND THEIR COOPERATION FOR ANOTHER FOUR YEARS

In time for the upcoming start of the season, Olympic and overall 21/22 season World Cup champion Marco Odermatt (25) and his ski supplier Stöckli have extended their successful partnership for a further four years. The Swiss ski manufacturer and top-ranked Swiss athlete are delighted.

A PERFECT MATCH: MARCO ODERMATT AND STÖCKLI EXTEND THEIR COOPERATION FOR ANOTHER FOUR YEARS

It was over 12 years ago that Marco Odermatt happened to borrow a colleague’s Stöckli skis for a training session. He was immediately 1.5 seconds faster, so the competitive Nidwalden racer obviously wanted to run his next event of the weekend on Stöckli skis. It was a perfect match, especially as “Odi”, as everyone calls him, promptly won it. An incredible story was about to unfold.

Stöckli and Marco Odermatt. It was meant to be. Marco Odermatt, the likeable, down-to-earth Central Swiss athlete and currently the most successful competitor in ski racing, and Stöckli, Switzerland’s largest ski manufacturer, complement each other perfectly. Starting with the early events as a young racer, followed by the five gold medals at the Junior World Championships in 2018, and continuing to this point, where Odermatt has reached the top of the world rankings in ski racing with his Olympic and overall World Cup victory. 29 podium finishes, including 11 World Cup victories, one Olympic victory and one overall World Cup victory: this, to date, is the mind-blowing record of the 25-year-old from Nidwalden on Stöckli skis. And now? The joint success story between Odermatt and Stöckli is set to continue for another four years.

Relationship with Odermatt to continue up to and including the 2025/26 season

Stöckli CEO Marc Gläser is particularly pleased that this success story is now being extended for a further four years, i.e. up to and including the 2025/26 season. “We’re delighted that Marco’s continuing his successful sporting career with us. I think I speak for the whole of Stöckli when I say that we’re proud to continue supporting a top world athlete like Marco Odermatt and writing Swiss sporting history together.” Gläser adds: “This is a real testimony to our company, to our work, but also to our products and, of course, our racing strategy, which focuses on joining young Swiss athletes on their path to becoming world champions.”

The ski manufacturer is not the only one to be thrilled. Odermatt says: “Stöckli and I are a perfect fit. The equipment, the support and the cooperation are world class. I feel like I’m in great hands at Stöckli and can rely on them 100%. I’m delighted that our successful cooperation will continue.”

BIENVENUE À COURCHEVEL ET MÉRIBEL

Located in the Savoy Alps close to the Italian border, the villages of Courchevel and Méribel are located in neighboring valleys. The locals are known as “Savoyens” or “Savoyards”. But there aren’t that many of them, especially in the mountain villages. Due to a lack of employment opportunities, past centuries saw many emigrate to lower-lying regions. It was only with the advent of winter tourism that these places were revived to become what they are today: famous, luxurious ski metropolises.
