“Sports has many players. Some are in the middle, some are behind the scenes. Our heroes are not only the athletes that train hard to achieve the best results, but also all the people that work in the background to make these sports event happen: our heroes in the background. And we are glad to give them the best equipment to prepare the best conditions for the athletes” says Sarah Stievano, Head of International Marketing at Würth MODYF.

The fast-growing sport of ski mountaineering (‘skimo’ for short), with Europe as its heartland, comprises men’s and women’s team and individual disciplines, plus a mixed relay event, involving racing over a series of ascents and descents, either carrying or wearing skis, towards a downhill finish.

Ski mountaineering made its debut as a medal sport at the Winter Youth Olympic Games in Lausanne in 2020, and was accepted by the IOC as a new Winter Olympic sport, debuting at the Milan-Cortina games in 2026, during the IOC Session in Tokyo in July last year.

ISMF President Regula Meier is very pleased about the partnership: “Innovation and Excellence are two important values of the ISMF and we see that the partnership with Würth MODYF underlines these values and helps us to bring our athletes, teams and staff one more step forward towards our Olympic debut in 2026.”



The Würth MODYF Group is specialized in workwear and safety shoes. The Group is located in Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Norway and Portugal and is part of the international Würth Group. Their goal is to provide customers with the best workwear and safety shoes. Passion, skill and dedication are what unites Würth MODYF and their customers.
