Alpine Team

Cimalpes Supports Young High Level Winter Sports Athletes

The Cimalpes mission,

support and guidance for high potential athletes

Supporting high-potential skiers in their sporting career while preparing them for a professional future. The approach of Cimalpes and its Alpine Team is unique today: beyond the financial support (a season is around 25,000 euros) provided by a sponsor, the company is committed to offering much more to its athletes by giving them the opportunity to discover the mountain real estate sector.

Sponsored by world champion Alexis Pinturault, the Cimalpes Alpine Team and its jury have selected eleven talents for the 2022-2023 season who share the same values as Cimalpes: high standards, audacity, passion and determination.

A programme supported by major mountain players

Because anchoring itself in its territory is part of its DNA, Cimalpes brought together a jury made up of eminent mountain players, including skiers Tessa Worley and Ophélie David, Michelin-starred chef Christophe Aribert, Banque de Savoie general manager Nicolas Poughon, Ski Chrono editor-in-chief Laurent Davier, Team sponsor Alexis Pinturault, winner of the 2021 World Cup, as well as Cimalpes' management.
