Alpina Watches is pleased to announce that French FIS World Cup skier Victor Muffat-Jeandet will continue its collaboration as Brand Ambassador for the next season.
As a member of the technical World Cup group of the French National Team, Victor just came back from a one-month training session in Argentina and Chile and visited the Alpina Watches Team in Plan-les-Ouates.
After a solid 2017-2018 season, where Victor earned a Bronze medal at the PyeongChang’s Olympic Games, won the Alpine Combined race in Wengen, made several podiums in FIS World Cup and finished the season by winning the GS and Slalom French Championships. As a passionate, engaged and hard-worker athlete, he is already preparing for next season with high objectives to achieve.
Victor will start the new ski season at the first FIS World Cup race next October 27-28 in Sölden but the biggest stake for him next Winter will be to be present and ready for the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Åre (Sweden) next February 5-17, 2019.
Victor Muffat-Jeandet and Alpina are united by their love for Alpine sports and for the Alpine universe and identify with the same “Alpinist” values which both believe are the foundations for any sports, professional and personal success.
Victor about the partnership: “I am delighted by this partnership which has been lasting for three years now. With Alpina Watches, we share the same passion for precision and technicality. It is always a pleasure for me to come and meet the watchmakers in the workshops, being able to share my experience and feedback on the Alpina watches that I have the pleasure to wear during my sports activities. Whether it is on connected watches that I use within my physical preparation or the automatic watches which I wear after my trainings! I am really happy about the new AlpinerX, a perfect outdoor watch which accompanies me on a daily basis. We work with Alpina on potential news functions which I hope will be released in 2019!”
The entire Alpina Watches Team is really proud to count Victor in its Alpinist family and wish him a very successful upcoming season.

He also made his first place in World Cup’s combined in Wengen.
Skier from Val d’Isère trained at his beginnings in Bonneval/Arc, Victor was initially coming from a city ski club, and was not necessarily predestined to become a ski Champion. Victor is passionate about sports from his youngest age, he’s tried many activities with his parents such as rock climbing, rugby or roller-skating, before starting the alpine skiing in competition, and for which he soon began to get involved.
Coming from a city club, his route until integrating the best French skiers has been long. He was first spotted and selected in different groups from the district committee reports, European Cup to finally his selection in the technical world cup group of the National Team in Spring 2012. Victor is racing in many disciplines like Slalom, Giant, and Combined and probably will soon race in all of them.
Victor’s hobbies are reading, computers, travels, mountain biking, and wakeboarding.
Rigorous, perseverant and perfectionist, he likes the work well done. He is highly demanding with himself and these requirements are bearing fruits season after season.
