Stockli in Engelberg. A lot more dates, a lot more complicated. Not sure if you can strip out accommodation if you don`t need it.

Yes, plus just Stöckli. Nothing against them, but in multi brand tests I always felt right on K2's.

Re: Ski and snowboard test days

Google is your friend. It would seem that this is a somewhat coordinated thing in CH http://www.sportbiz.ch/skitest/winter.html

However the autumn glacier test are about to close and its down to individual dealer events.

Re: Ski and snowboard test days

At the risk of being the only one feeding this thread, Im sharing my research as it progresses.

There is a big test session in St Moritz next weekend (30th-2nd Dec) organized by the aforementioned company:

http://www.sportbiz.ch/user_content/...oritz_2012.pdf

I will mail them and ask if there are other days than this planned.

Stöckli doesnt seem to participate in the Swiss Skitest multibrand days, but here is their skitest event page

http://de.stoeckli.ch/main/events/ski_alpin/

Here is BlackDiamonds

http://www.blackdiamondequipment.com...vents#skitests

I think I will try and make the Flumserberg days after all, nearby and big selection.

Re: Ski and snowboard test days

Heres the text of the reply from the company. Seems we should have planned further ahead. How Swiss! Its down to dealer events now.

Besten Dank für Ihre Anfrage. Von Ende September bis zum Wochenende vom 25. November waren die Testcenter Saas-Fee, Zermatt und Sölden offen zum Testen. Wie Sie bereits festgestellt haben findet nächstes Wochenende das Skiopening in St. Moritz statt und somit der Abschluss für diese Saison (s. Anhang). Es kann jedoch sein, dass einige Sporthändler noch eigene Testtage durchführen, diese Daten sind uns jedoch nicht bekannt.

Re: Ski and snowboard test days

Reactivating an old thread looking for current info, anyone know of any company organising a test day at Flumserberg?

Re: Ski and snowboard test days

Seems that they have test days on December 12th and 13th

From their site: http://www.sport-trend-shop.ch/detai...umserberg.html
  • Tageskarte, Testmaterial Chf. 90.-- (Anreise mit PW oder ÖV)
  • Nur Testpass, ohne Tageskarte Chf. 40.-- bei Voranmeldung (ohne + Chf. 5.--)
Do you guys know what's included in the test pass?


But even the day ticket for 90 CHF seems like a really good deal

Thanks, my google-fu was failing me.

The test pass should be your lift pass and unlimited changes of skis including fitting to your boots, so you can keep trying out different ones to see what suits. 90 is about right, last time I was down there at a ski test it was 40 for the test if you had your day pass already.
