VAL THORENS: THE SKICROSS CAPITAL

DO YOU SKI CROSS OR NOT?

This winter, turn your ski tips towards the FIGHT SKI CLUB, an experience that started online and wound up on the slopes! Fight Ski Club is the story of the biggest secret in ski cross finally unveiled by Jean-Fred Chapuis and his followers including Arnaud Bovolenta, Bastien Midol and Youri Duplessis-Kergomard…


A SKICROSS WEBSERIES LAUNCHING THIS WINTER

An amazing cast, with tongue-in-cheek references to David Fincher’s cult hit, Fight Club! Inspired and narrated by JF Chapuis, this series dives into the original spirit of the sport: the thirst for challenge and the joy of competing with your mates. For them, ski cross is a lifestyle in which fun, healthy competition and anti-conformism are the watchwords.
Careful though, to become part of the community you need to be aware of the rules… but shhh, we won’t say anymore. Come back this winter for 3 episodes of the first season, due to arrive on Val Thorens’ YouTube channel.
As a bonus, the Club master will also deliver his technical secrets in a series of 4 technique videos.


A PLAYGROUND FOR SELF-EXPRESSION

The fun continues on THE ski run: the Jean-Frédéric Chapuis World Cup stadium, designed to be accessible to as many people as possible. JF is challenging anyone who can beat his best qualifying time of 1 minute 11 seconds 32 milliseconds!! Skiers of all ages can try their luck on a lifesized 1.4 kilometre course equipped with a timer system. Five cameras are located along the course so you can take home a souvenir of your achievements or share the video on social networks.


WIN YOUR PLACE IN THE FIGHT SKI CLUB!

Once a week, a Fight Ski Club race is organised for the general public. Participants can make multiple attempts at the race in order to achieve their best time and win a place on the podium. The Fight Ski Club community will reward its new members with Val Thorens-branded prizes. Free to register, the race takes place on Wednesdays from 11am to 3pm, with gold star level ability required.

Fight Ski Club: The Teaser!

The #FightSkiClub happens on your screens Tuesday, December 8 to 6pm.
Here are some images of the new web series Chapuis Jean Fred to make you wait!

Episode 1 - "The starting point"

This is the story of a group of mates who turn games, sport and skiing into an art of living. Anything is good for a laugh and Ski cross thus became a real eye opener, the best way to compete between mates. They founded a secret community on their passion... And very soon, others wanted to join them. To bring some order, Jean Fred Chapuis, the initiator of the community and Olympic champion, decided to establish the rules of the Fight Ski Club.

Episode 2 : Freeskiing according to Jean Fred Chapuis

At the Fight ski club, you do not ski in a stadium! Freeskiing is the essence of the game and technique, a philosophy that Jean Fred Chapuis allows us to discover during a day of riding and personal challenges in Val-Thorens. We discover a very original approach to freeskiing cultivated at the Fight Ski Club where we have an amazing time, irrespective of our skis, the terrain and the conditions.

[PORTRAIT] JEAN-FRÉDÉRIC CHAPUIS, THE SKI CROSS PRODIGY, WINNER OF EVERY TITLE!

He started out as an Alpine skier at Val Thorens’ Ski Club before swapping to Ski Cross. The move was a real revelation, as 5 years later at the age of just 23 he became World Champion, since which time he’s never missed a podium.

The young prodigy masterfully led the historic French triple-win at the Sochi Olympic Games and took home an Olympic gold medal. In 2015, he finished the world circuit by winning the Crystal Globe in Megève and closed the season on his own run in Val Thorens, winning the title of French Ski Cross champion.

We said that once Chapuis got started, nothing could stop him! After this series of prestigious titles, Jean-Fred’s new challenge is to start again and keep on excelling!
