our history

Deutsch

It all began in America.

 

I'm Josef Koster, and I've been mountain boarding since 1999 after seeing the sport in America, where it has existed since 1995.
I'm thoroughly delighted that my hobby has now become my job, even more so because I have a great team around me.


2003

   Business founded in Gais, the managing director is Josef Koster

 

We started out in Gais in a hall with a small bistro, a shop and an indoor trail for mountain boarding, so we had a place where we could promote the sport in winter too.
The first mountain boarding excursions for companies, clubs and individuals were run in Appenzell and Gais.
