High Five Festival, 11th edition
Since 2010, the ski industry and resorts have had their eyes on Annecy as the High Five Festival launches the winter season in advance. A not-to-be-missed event that brings together more than 30,000 festival-goers, 30 brands and resorts, as well as partners, athletes and speakers at masterclasses and conferences.
For this 11th edition, the High Five returns to its roots by choosing 3 key spots: the Impérial Palace, the Pâquier and the Cinéma Pathé, but innovates with even more entertainment and activities.
A programme that sets the bar 'high'
Considered as the Cannes Festival of Skiing, the High Five Festival is the international reference event mixing skiing and 7th art. It is even more than that, it is an institution that perfectly mixes generations. It has to be said that every year, more and more people come to this unique event. So the organisation follows!
