Intersport Austria is organizing its first-ever free-skiing day at 21 Austrian ski resorts on Jan. 13. To motivate even more people to ski, the company is also giving away 10,000 ski-lift tickets on Jan. 7-11. Intersport Austria has also organized a kids' slope racing cup, with 17 ski races for children aged four to eleven years. The series starts on Jan. 4 at the Mölltal glacier. Also available, for an additional charge of €10, is the so-called “growing skis” option on the purchase of ski models up to 140 cm long. The option allows customers to exchange the skis within two years of their purchase for a new pair at the reduced cost of €25. Winter sports is the most successful product category for Intersport Austria, which recorded a year-on-year sales increase of 16 percent in the segment for its 2017/18 financial year. Sales in Intersport's rent segment were also up, by 10.7 percent.
