« It is a matter of course that the Club des Sports de Chamonix and Monnet should partner as they both stand as major player in the world of alpine skiing in France. From its inception onwards, the Club des Sports de Chamonix has afforded the country a number of its snow ski champions. Monnet has shown the same commitment to the sport by closing exclusive supply agreements with France’s Ski Teams.»
