In 2022, Alpina is renewing its partnership with the Freeride World Tour for the 5th consecutive year. To celebrate this collaboration Alpina is revealing an exclusive limited edition, the Alpiner Quartz Chronograph Freeride World Tour 2022, produced in 100 pieces, to the delight of aficionados of mountain slopes and snow sports.
For four years, Alpina and the Freeride World Tour have shared the common values of the mountains, sport, excellence, performance and precision. Again this year, Alpina is proud to be able to witness the ascension of the athletes to reach their peak, and excel.
Now the most demanding freeride skiing and snowboarding competition ever known, and attracting the best athletes from across the world, the Freeride World Tour will be celebrating its fifteenth anniversary in 2022. After fifteen seasons of challenges, lines to create with everincreasing inventiveness and technical mastery, and snow-covered mountain slopes which are more impressive with each descent, this time, the Freeride World Tour boasts a new stage in Spain, as well as a new format for the Qualifier Tour.
The competition this year will begin at Baqueira Beret, in Spain, from January 22th – 28th, and will be followed by the traditional stop-over in Andorra, at Ordino-Arcalís, from January 30th to February 5th. The tour will continue in Canada, in the Kicking Horse Golden BC resort, then at Fieberbrunn in Austria, before its finale on the iconic and majestic Bec des Rosses at Verbier, in Switzerland, from March 23rd to April 3rd.
Bearing the name Xtreme Verbier, this stage which celebrated its 25-year anniversary in 2021 is without doubt the pinnacle of freestyle skiing and snowboarding. Probably the most difficult terrain to master, it allowed itself to be tamed last year by Victor De Le Rue (snowboard), a member of Alpina’s Alpinists Team who claimed his second world champion title – the first in 2019.
In 2022, Alpina is proud to support Victor for a new season, alongside Juliette Willmann in the women’s skiing category.
