Since the beginning, the Salomon brand has shared its values with those who have dedicated their lives to playing in the mountains — guides, ski instructors, ski patrollers, and others of similar professions. Often synonymous with fun moments and achievements in the sun and snow, the mountains can also be dangerous and unpredictable, surprising even the best mountain professionals. Each year, a number of professionals are victims of serious accidents that prevent them from dedicating their lives to the mountains. In other cases, they suffer such injuries that they are unable to continue their profession. It is in a spirit of reciprocity and solidarity that the Salomon Foundation was created in March of 1999, under the guidance of the Foundation de France, the Salomon family and the Salomon Society. The goal is to help mountain professionals and competitors in need.
For Salomon, supporting the Salomon Foundation is a way of affirming its solidarity with the environment and the mountain community by providing a financial assistance and moral support to the victims.
