Alpina - Nils Allegre joins the Alpinists Team

Alpina Nils Allegre joins the Alpinists Team

With the 2020 winter sports season under way, Alpina announces French skier Nils Allegre as the latest member of its Alpinists team.

Born on January 2nd, 1994, in Briançon in the Upper Alps in France, Nils Allegre began skiing at the age of two and a half with his parents at the French resort of Serre Chevalier. First, he joined the Briançon ski club – where his father was a coach at the time – and six years later, he joined that of Serre Chevalier.

Nils Allegre soon realised that his destiny lay in competitive skiing. Quickly captivated by the discipline he had dreamed of from an early age, he still remembers watching reruns of ski world cups with his family, which back then were recorded on video. These recordings proved invaluable, enabling Nils and his father – his mentor – to watch every descent over and over, so as to analyse them down to the very last detail. Happy memories that continue to inspire him in the practise of this sport even today.

Nils Allegre has been part of the France Ski Team since 2011. Having started out as a member of the Young Talent (category C) team, his first European Cup competitions (category B) followed before he joined the Men's World Cup Speed (alpine skiing) team, where he has been progressing for three seasons already.

In 2018, Nils was named French Double Champion of Super-G and combined, then in 2019, French Vice Champion of Super-G. He also took 14th place at the Are World Ski Championships (Sweden) in Super-G, as well as 6th place at the Bormio Ski World Cup (Italy) in combined. In 2020, the French skier took 7th place at the Hinterstoder World Cup (Austria) in Super-G and is 13th place in the global ranking for combined and 15th for Super-G.

Passionate about mountains and the mix of terrains they can offer, Nils is also very conscious of the risks associated with them. "It is therefore with great joy, but also great humility, that I am joining Alpina’s Team in partnership with the Salomon Foundation," said the French skier. "Solidarity is a core value in the world of mountain sports and through supporting action and communication around the Salomon Foundation, Alpina is once more demonstrating its commitment to a useful and heartfelt project. In addition to the quality and precision of Alpina watches, I discovered a company with healthy, direct relationships. I am therefore very proud to be part of this team, comprised of athletes from all sporting disciplines within the mountain world. We look forward to starting a new chapter together and helping those receiving support from the Salomon Foundation."
