“You can feel Kästle’s race heritage in their all-mountain skis. I especially like the TX line and particularly the TX98. For me, this ski is ideal for every day—whether it’s a powder day or a spring tour, the TX98 makes everything perfect.”





Alain Payot grew up in Chamonix at the foot of Mont Blanc, learned to ski there as a child, and spent a lot of time skiing in the region until he started traveling the world. Before globetrotting, however, he trained as a ski instructor and mountain guide at home, initially spending a lot of time in France and also in Patagonia.






After that, he wanted more and sought adventure on every continent, but Chamonix is ​​still his home base. After exploring different parts of the world, he always appreciated returning to Chamonix.
