An interesting interactive insight into the history of alpine skiing and the revolutionary in-house design and technical innovation by the world famous Elan ski factory.

Elan, regarded as one of the most innovative companies in the area of the development of skis, opened a museum in 2018.

In its over seventy years history, Elan has introduced innumerable products to the market which, with its in-house technology, design and technical innovation, has changed the history of alpine skiing. Among the museum's exhibits are the first wooden skis made by Rudi Finžgar, as well as the latest ones featuring AmphibioTM technology. Other exhibits include old equipment for making skis and films and photographs showing the heroes of Elan skis.

The exhibits in the other part of the museum include various other sports equipment produced by Elan such as children's playground equipment, boats and even tennis rackets. A particularly interesting feature are the interactive points where visitors can 'make' skis, test their balance on skis or snowboards, and end by winding their way to the finish line in the ski simulator.
