ORTOVOX Gold Winner for Safety Academy Mountain 3D

Published by Mountainblog on .

This year too ORTOVOX was able to impress the ISPO AWARD panel. Along with the AWARD in the communication category for the NOSTALGIA SKI VIDEO  received in November, ORTOVOX is now happy to announce the GOLD for SAFETY ACADEMY MOUNTAIN 3D in the avalanche safety category.

SAFETY ACADEMY MOUNTAIN 3D, or SAM for short, is a training tool for avalanche theory. It is ideal for training courses for beginners, and clearly illustrates information that is often difficult to understand. There’s a handbook for the 3D mountain that addresses questions about the formation of avalanches. The correct answers are worked out and discussed in the group, with the help of the mountain. This way beginners, and the more advanced, can easily learn the influence that factors such as slope angle and weather conditions have on the formation of avalanches, and how to plan a ski tour according to these conditions.



Wool is a timeless material that has been worn by skiers for generations. This idea is the basis for the NOSTALGIA SKI VIDEO. Since 1988, ORTOVOX has been processing the same wool that was used to make clothes 100 years ago to make INNOVATIVE and FUNCTIONAL PRODUCTS. As part of the 25 year wool anniversary, ORTOVOX employees kitted out with old wooden skis and traditional ski clothing went on a journey back in time to skiing’s early days.
