Kilian Lochmatter

Downhill skiing is one of the world’s most popular sports. It’s also one of the world’s most popular competitive sports. In competition, every fraction of a second counts. It’s obvious that not only does the skier have to be in top form, but their equipment as well.

One of the key people who works in the exclusive field of ski team equipment maintenance is Kilian Lochmatter. Kilian is originally from Upper Canton Valais in southern Switzerland, and is a crack skier in his own right. But he’s known internationally as a top specialist in what for many is the key piece of equipment in the ski competitors’ outfit: the boot. Killian is one of the world’s top boot fitters, and his choice of a boot can make or break a competitor’s chances in a race.
