Testimonies

“I’m just coming back from this second edition of the Alpinum Impulse Tour… 

It was awesome! Great organisation, kind volunteers, relaxed competitors, a radiant sun (the morning race was on a frozen snow, the afternoon was more like water skiing!). I was on a relay with my brother, but we were missing a third partner… We were asked to ski with Antonin Guigonnat’s mom (who attended too) ! Great atmosphere, I recommend!

My hat goes off to Stéphane Grosset, Tiphaine and all the organsation team who made this project happen. One thing is certain: I’m coming back next year!” – Martin

“A big thank you for this awesome moment!!! Can’t wait for next year ;)” – Damien S

“Thank you for this perfect day. Awesome organisation, I’m extremely satisfied.” – Vince
