Alpine Skiing

Longines’s commitment to timekeeping in Alipine skiing dates back to 1933 in Chamonix. Relying on this heritage, the watchmaker continues to put its know-how at the service of the snow arena as official timekeeper of the Alpine Skiing World Cup and the World Championships of the International Ski Federation (FIS).

No less than seven technicians arrive three days before the first training session or race. Two days are needed to set up the material and one day is booked for several tests before the first races start. Throughout the season, the technicians install three tonnes of equipment measuring 3.5 cubic meters. The number of intermediate times recorded varies from two to five, depending on the type of skiing involved. In addition, speed-measuring devices are also set up during the downhill and Super-G events. The entire timing system, which is officially approved and fitted with a secondary back-up facility, provides measurements that are accurate to 1/100th of a second. All of the equipment is designed to operate across a temperature range of -20°C to +50°C.
