HISTORY
Elan's story begins during World War ll, when twelve craftsmen and engineers manufacture several hundred pairs of lighweight, durable wooden skis for Partisan troops.
Formally, Elan is established in 1945 by Rudi Finžgar, a visionary and an audacious ski jumper, who jumps a world record (95 meters) in 1941. The beginning is more than promising, as after only a few years Elan is exporting to the US and rolls out 800 pairs of skis a year...

HISTORY
In the mid-1930s, Josef Stöckli was making wooden skis for his own use. One day, he filled his mother’s large washtub with water and lit the fire underneath. No, not to wash dirty laundry. He was much more interested in the boards he had already hewn in his parent’s carpentry shop from ash and in steaming them over his mother’s bubbling wash basin to bend them into shape. The skis must have been good since he started getting orders from his friends. When the demand grew larger, he decided in 1935 to establish the ski brand Stöckli AG...
