Powder! 

The Klöckl, figure of a centuries-old tradition of the Sarntal Valley, adorns this freeride ski. 

The ski is just as daring as the Klöckl looks: This model is an ingenious companion for adventurous variant skiing with an alpine binding as well as for free touring with a pin binding. 

Thanks to the 350mm rocker in the shovel and the large contact surface the Klöckl has enough buoyancy to shine in soft snow. But it convinces also on variable, wind-pressed snow and can be maneuvered safely and controlled through difficult terrain.

Available in the following Sarner Ski Testcenter: Alpin Sports Company (Seis / Seiser Alm), Skiverleih Reinswald (Sarntal), Sportservice Rent and Go Erwin Stricker (Plose / Schnals).

Where does the Klöckl come from?

The Sarntal Valley, place of origin of the Sarner Ski, was for a long time very remote and therefore traditions have been particularly well preserved here. “Klöckeln” is an Advent custom that is only found in this form in the Sarnthal Valley and nowhere else in South Tyrol or Central Europe.

The name "Klöckeln" comes from "klocken", which means "to knock" in the Sarntal Valley dialect. On the three Thursdays before the winter solstice, masked figures in traditional costume parade in the darkness with music, noise, goat horns, bells and roaring through the villages in the Sarentino Valley and precisely knock on the front doors of the houses. The winter spirits are to be driven out and fertility for the fields conjured up.
