The SIGB Ski Test is specifically tailored to the needs of UK ski retailers and offers all participants who are serious about selecting their equipment range crucial knowledge advantages when it comes to putting together their range.

Kühtai: the destination for ski racing, testing and holidays
The best guarantee of snow, a first-class tourism infrastructure and a location with convenient transport links only about 35 minutes from Innsbruck make Kühtai a popular winter sports destination for visitors and locals alike. Thanks to the excellent conditions on the pistes over 2,020 metres above sea level, the Women's Alpine Skiing World Cup and the IPC Europa Cup were hosted in Kühtai this year. The winter sports destination also stepped in at short notice as the host for the opening event in the Luge Natural Track World Championships.
