Alpiq and Swiss-Ski remain strong partners

Alpiq and the Swiss Ski Federation, Swiss-Ski, are to continue their successful cooperation for three more years. This was announced by both partners on 13 September 2011 at the alpine Ski advertising week held by Swiss-Ski in Zermatt.

Alpiq, the leading Swiss energy services provider with European orientation can already look back on two successful years as a partner of Swiss-Ski. "The cooperation since 2009 strengthens Alpiq's strong roots in Switzerland – and particularly in the Swiss mountain cantons in which the true roots of Alpiq lie. Furthermore, we were able to increase the profile of the young energy company Alpiq considerably", said Michael Wider, Deputy CEO of Alpiq, during the alpine Ski advertising week organised by Swiss-Ski in Zermatt. Andreas Wenger, Director of Swiss-Ski, is delighted about the shared future. Alpiq and Swiss-Ski fit ideally together. I am thus delighted that we are able to continue this successful and strong partnership and are able to tackle the next three years together."

Commitment in snow sports, also in individual sponsoring In addition to the Swiss Ski Federation, Alpiq also supports individual sports persons. At the head of the Alpiq team is Dominique Gisin from the national alpine ski team − and following her are eight up-and-coming athletes from the Swiss cantons of Graubünden, Obwalden, Vaud and Valais. In this way Alpiq wants to contribute to the future of winter sports, which are so important for Switzerland, and at the same time express its solidarity with the mountain cantons.
