La Sportiva is the main sponsor of a new team of professional and amateur ski touring athletes, which has been named the La Sportiva Mountain Attack Team. It takes the name from the Italian company and from Mountain Attack, a well-known Austrian ski touring race that will take place for the 16th time next Jan. 17. La Sportiva is supplying boots, skis and apparel for them with the team starting off with 21 members. The idea is to expand it to about 30 members including more female skiers.
