Swiss SkiOerlikon supports young talents and the national excellence centers of the Swiss Ski Association.
Ski sponsoring – the Oerlikon Swiss Cup
Scouting and developing young talents early is crucial. The Oerlikon Swiss Cup was founded on this philosophy, together with the Swiss ski legend Pirmin Zurbriggen. The Cup makes a valuable contribution to help Swiss skiers reach the top at alpine skiing and become tomorrow’s World Cup winners.
The Oerlikon Swiss Cup is a special competition for junior ski athletes, consisting of 15 races across Switzerland. The three best-ranked paid a premium. The overall rating in spring is the basis for selections into the various youth program teams or for one of the three national excellence centers, which are also financially supported by Oerlikon. The goal is to create training centers that integrate sports training with academic and vocational training. At the same time, young ski talents should get together in a competitive environment that will enable higher performance levels. In sponsoring the young Swiss ski talents, Oerlikon as a leading Swiss high-tech company is taking on a local and social responsibility.
Since six years, Oerlikon is the title sponsor for the Swiss Cup. Although the Oerlikon Group is represented in a number of countries, the management never forgets where the roots of Oerlikon originate. For a Swiss company, it is close to advocate for snow sports - as close is the belief of our youth. Here we are investing in the future.
The successful cooperation of Swiss Ski and Oerlikon over the last couple of years will continue in the future.
Strong performance at the Oerlikon Swiss Cup 2015
The winter is over, and also the Oerlikon Swiss Cup 2015 is now history. Thanks to the generous support of the organization of Oerlikon, the FIS race took place on a high, sometimes even very high level, which was not a foregone due to the weather and snow conditions this season. The final race in Davos (women) and Zinal (men) were to be a real thriller, and full of surprises.
