Where does the name "Snoli" come from?


Franz Maislinger, founder and director of the Glungezer ski school in Tulfes/Tirol, invented the "Maislinger Schuh Walker" in 1969, which made the former used leather ski boots soft and comfortable in 10 minutes with approx. This invention was patent-registered in Austria and Germany.

Further developments and various small devices followed and the word "Maislinger" was converted to the protected brand name "Snoli", which emphasises the connection to snow. Today Snoli products are sold worldwide and used especially in ski racing.

The headquarters of the Snoli company is in Absam, where many national teams, service experts, ski manufacturers, sports retailers and ski rental shops come for  advise today. This “togetherness” has made us successful worldwide.  

In autumn 2019, Franz Maislinger sold the Maislinger-Snoli company to Christian Kofler. The company is to be continued in his spirit extended with new ideas. Put your trust in the new leadership too! You can be sure that Maislinger-Snoli GmbH will continue to do everything possible to continue the good cooperation.


Sincerely, Kofler Christian and the entire Snoli team!
