Zermatt is arguably the World’s most famous ski resort. A car-free village at the foot of Switzerland's most famous mountain, the Matterhorn. This highly attractive blend of old school Alpine village and sophisticated holiday destination boasts a varied offering, including a modern lift system, cutting edge housing architecture, classy hotels and top-level shopping. The 50+ lifts & mountain trains provide access to over 360 kilometers of runs for skiing in Zermatt and the nearby Cervinia in Italy. The abundance of extremely high altitude mountain peaks around Zermatt guarantees access to some of the best off-piste skiing, alpine touring and heliskiing in the World!
This is the home of The Mountain Studio, with our doorstep literally 4 meters from one of Zermatt’s famous ski slopes.
While the village of Zermatt is the base of our mountain lifestyle, the entire Alpine region is our playground. Here in the famous resorts of Switzerland, France, Italy, Germany and Austria we, and our friends develop, test and enjoy our garments.A network of top level skiers, alpinists, photographers, designers – men and women – is the foundation of our brand. They are people who spend most of their days out on the mountain – come rain come shine. Demanding as hell about their gear and clothes, but all sharing our love of a mountain lifestyle.
We, the founders of The Mountain Studio all have vast experience from various famous brands of ski- and sportswear. We are driven by passion for skiing and a mountain lifestyle, and with The Mountain Studio we hope to reach out to others who share this passion.
A newcomer to the manufacture of skiwear, but hardly a newcomer to skiing; Marcel Hirscher, is also one of the founders. He is well-known for his strive for perfection during his matchless career in ski racing, both with his training but also with his gear. This spirit he brings to The Mountain Studio when it comes to developing and testing new garments. And as for living a mountain lifestyle - he shares his time between the ski resorts of the World and his home on a mountain farm in the Austrian Alps.
The main idea with The Mountain Studio, is to develop a small collection of carefully curated garments for advanced skiing, outdoor and mountain living. But also, versatile enough to work in an urban setting. And instead of constantly creating new products every season we will keep and improve upon our trusted models, eventually adding new colors or fabrics.
And as important to us is to make them as well built as possible, so you will be able to use them for a long time. Come rain and snow, come shine – as in our mountains….
