About the CISM

CISM is an independent organization managed by experienced professionals who are passionate about mountain sports.

CISM activities fall into two complementary areas :

  • TRAINING Department;
  • PERFORMANCE Department, dedicated to the training of international athletes looking for a structure that takes into account all aspects of their preparation in the following disciplines: alpine skiing, freestyle skiing, snowboarding, hiking, paragliding, mountain biking.

The multi character of these two departments is a real asset for students who would seek a double qualification adapted to the seasonal practices.

This international orientation, open to foreign athletes concerned by training or performance is also the strength of the CISM.

CISM is located in the heart of Tignes, designated as the most sporting town in France by the newspaper "L’Equipe" in 2008. Based in altitude (2100m) at the top of the famous Tarentaise Valley in Savoie, it enjoys an exceptional natural environment and local infrastructure unique in the Alps for mountain sports. The glacier reached within minutes by funicular opened nearly 300 days per year has for a long time been the site preparation sports enthusiast from around the world. Sports equipment installed on the shores of Lake Tignes and close to CISM, such as sports stadiums, Lagon (water park and formatting) Tignespace (indoor arena) are the advantages of a quality unequaled in Europe for a company such as CISM.
