Alpina Enak Gavaggio, new ambassador
The French alpine skier, skier-cross, snowboarder, free rider, base jumper and surfer is a new member of the Alpinist Family.
A famous and influent figure in the French Mountain Industry, Enak is known and appreciated both by his peers for his carrier results and strong personality, and by the younger generation for his Rancho WebShow series, a skiing universe themed web show.
Enak started to ski at 8 years old and his career’s hit list could make most people blush: 7 skier-cross medals at the X-Games, 5x skier-cross WORLD CUP WINNER, 5 medals at the World Championship, and a 4th and 5th place at the Freeride World Tour Championship. He put an end to his professional career as an athlete in 2010 after the Vancouver Winter Olympics.

“We are very happy and proud to welcome Enak to our Alpinist Family!”, Alpina’s Brand Manager Oliver van Lanschot Hubrecht said. “On top of being an exceptional skier, Enak uses his notoriety to give visibility to all the different disciplines that are practiced in the mountains, and all of this without ever forgetting to inspire the younger generation. We are also thrilled to have an acrobatic sportsman like Enak to use and give us feedback on our new AlpinerX Smart Outdoors connected watch!”
“I’m really proud to represent the Alpina Watches brand, and for a number of reasons,” Enak added. “I’ve always been attracted by their products, I’ve always liked their communication, and I’m very sensitive to the fact that I’m working in a structure with family values. And above all, I highly appreciate the proximity and the exchange that we can have in this type of structure. In addition, we started with their Marketing Team to imagine projects more than 7 years ago…. what a joy for me to finally see this collaboration come to life! ”
Enak and Alpina are united by their love for Alpine sports and the Alpine universe and identify with the same “Alpinist” values which both believe are the foundations for any sports, as well as professional and personal success.
