New Indoor Ski Centre in the Swiss Alps

A new indoor ski centre has opened in the Swiss town of Saillon.

Locoski features a SkiWorld Pro machine from Dutch-company Alpine Engineering which can be adjusted in terms of speed and steepness according to skier need.

The slope also features a recent additional innovation, with routes to follow projected on to the slope.  Again these can change according to requirements.

The Loco Ski Academy SA was founded by the Buchard family, who are passionate about sports and skiing. Laurence Buchard, a former competitor and member of the Swiss ski B team and the only woman in the family, can accompany skiers and offer advice to improve skills.

Laurence is joined by her sons, Damien and Loïs, her brother Olivier Morand and Joël Vocat representing the Verbier St-Bernard Ski team, all seasoned skiers, in running the Locoski centre.
