LGT’s commitment to skiing

LGT has been committed to alpine skiing for decades.

LGT sponsors skiing in Liechtenstein

Liechtenstein is a small country with an impressive skiing tradition – time and time again, it succeeds in producing some of the world’s highest-ranking alpine skiers. Former racers such as Marco Büchel, Hanni Wenzel, Paul Frommelt and Ursula Konzett, as well as current top athletes such as Tina Weirather and Marco Pfiffner are among the best skiers in the world. LGT has been supporting these talented individuals for many years and is also committed to helping promote young talents and skiing as a sport for the general public in Liechtenstein.

Exceptional commitment, discipline, assertiveness and passion – anyone who wants to rank among the best in sports must maximize their potential to the fullest, push themselves to the limit, believe in their success, deal with defeat and dedicate the utmost enthusiasm and commitment to achieving their goals.

As a company headquartered in Liechtenstein, LGT has been committed to skiing in Liechtenstein for over 30 years. Through its sponsoring commitments, LGT on the one hand supports the Liechtenstein Ski Association, the ski lifts in Malbun, skiing as a sport for the general public as well as up-and-coming young skiers. On the other hand, it also supports individual world-class athletes such as Tina Weirather and Marco Pfiffner, and when they were still actively competing, LGT sponsored Marco Büchel, who still acts as an ambassador for LGT, and Marina Bürzle (née Nigg).

Überdurchschnittliche Leistungsbereitschaft, Disziplin, Durchsetzungskraft und Leidenschaft – wer im Sport zu den Besten gehören will, muss das eigene Potenzial voll ausschöpfen, an die Grenzen gehen, an den Erfolg glauben, mit Niederlagen umgehen und sich mit absoluter Begeisterung und Hingabe seinen Zielen widmen.

Als Unternehmen mit Hauptsitz in Liechtenstein engagiert sich die LGT seit über 30 Jahren für den Liechtensteiner Skisport. Auf der einen Seite fördert die LGT mit ihrem Sponsoring des Liechtensteiner Skiverbands, der Bergbahnen Malbun und des LGT Talentecups den Breitensport und den Skinachwuchs und auf der anderen Seite auch einzelne Weltklasse-Athleten wie Tina Weirather und Marco Pfiffner oder, zu ihrer aktiven Zeit, Marco Büchel, der immer noch als LGT Botschafter tätig ist, und Marina Bürzle (ehem. Nigg).

LGT and Tina Weirather - a successful partnership

Tina Weirather has been one of the world’s top skiers for years. She is an impressive example of perseverance, discipline and passion. Despite her numerous injuries, she has always fought her way back to the top – and is now one of the fastest female ski racers in the world.

The last season was the most successful in her career to date: Not only has she won a bronze medal at the Olympic Games in Pyeongchang as well as the small crystal ball in the Super G, but she has also secured podium finishes in the World Cup.  

Tina Weirather concentrates above all on the speed disciplines. It is the speed that appeals to her. «Even as a ten year-old, I always wanted to go straight down the slope, and it annoyed me when people told me I should make lots of little turns.»

LGT has been supporting the Liechtenstein athlete since she was 16 years old, and she sports the LGT logo on her helmet and race suit. We are very proud of our congenial brand ambassador and also support her onsite at races.

LGT supports the fostering of young talents and skiing as a sport for the general public in Liechtenstein

The fact that Liechtenstein has been a successful skiing nation for many years is not least due to the country’s outstanding promotion of its young skiing talents. The Liechtensteinische Skiverband (LSV) does excellent work in this area. All of the people involved work highly professionally, aiming to identify talented individuals early on, and foster and help them to develop over the years. Regularly producing top talents is only possible through professional and long-term work with young talents. As a Liechtenstein company, it is important to us that we support the important work of the LSV. That is why we have been a sponsor of the Liechtenstein Ski Association for over 20 years.

One example of the outstanding work that the LSV does with young talents is slalom racer Marco Pfiffner. He is one of the top young talents from Liechtenstein and has been sponsored by LGT since 2016.

Many Liechtenstein ski stars laid the foundations for their success in the skiing region of Malbun. And many current and former world-class skiers can still be found on their home slopes. To support skiing as a sport for the general public and Liechtenstein’s only skiing region, LGT has also been sponsoring the network of ski lifts in the Malbun region for many years.

"Stability is an important element in a successful partnership - this is true in banking, in terms of the relationship between a relationship manager and a client, as well as in sponsorship. We have now been supporting the Liechtenstein Ski Association and local athletes for over 20 years."
