Sportalp in Lech has been the go-to address for all those who love skiing, snowboarding or touring. Whatever you need for your (winter) sports, the modern store in Jagdhaus Monzabon on Schlegelkopf has it all!
Who said shopping has to be stressful? A short stop at Sportalp proves it doesn't, a great choice of functional skiing gear and stylish winter fashion invite you to have a look around. "It's mostly our personal atmosphere and our long-standing staff that have brought us many regular customers" tells us Philip Waldhart, manager in the second generation and a passionate snow athlete, just like the rest of his team.
"Different from big chains and well-known labels our shop is a small jewel. Many pieces of clothing are exclusively designed and hand-made!" For the 2014/15 winter season the expert sees fashionable variety on the slope: "Everything's possible – colourful or colour-coordinated. All in all though, the Scandinavian labels are going to take the lead."
Top-Service & rental
One undisputed trend definitely is the renting of the right equipment. "You don't have to transport the gear to the holiday destination and you always get serviced and new models by different brands" is how Philip Waldhart explains the advantages. This way one gets to choose freely and the gear can be changed according to snow and weather conditions. Every time skis and boards are returned they directly go to the house's own service station where experts take care of the service.
"We always use the right wax for the present conditions. And regular service makes the equipment more durable and ensures a comfortable and smooth running of the skis. On request we even offer World Cup waxing for skis and boards, a complex procedure that requires a lot of experience", Philip Waldhart proudly tells us. So no wonder that even the Austrian and the German snowboard World Cup teams are among the satisfied Sportalp-customers!
Aside from Sportalp Philip Waldhart likes to keep himself busy with a new project for 2014/2015: a small North-Face shop in Lech will provide stylish surroundings for the popular outdoor brand. Other popular labels as well as a small but excellent bike rental with mountain bikes, e-bikes, downhill bikes and bike service complement the offer and make sure that guests can explore the beautiful nature during Lech's wonderful mountain summer.
