Projects of the Foundation

For the following years, the Foundation plans various projects and publications. Among other things, the biography of important pioneers of skiing from the Arlberg regions should be documented on a scientific level. Furthermore the projects should be accompanied by exhibitions and events. 

First of all, for 2017 a comprehensive documentation of the Viktor Sohm papers is planned. The collection consists of photographs and written documents (including interesting patents). Thanks to Viktor Sohm´s granddaughter Felicitas Suter it is possible to digitalize the collection and work on the papers. A main goal is the creation of a travelling exhibition and a publication on Viktor Sohm who was at the ski instructor of Hannes Schneider. The project should be realized in 2019, on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of his birth.
