Skiing

Meeting the snow at the youngest age ;)

I grew up in the heart of a famous ski resort in the Northern Alps. At the age of two my parents took me skiing and I loved it. I got into monoskiing went that was in fashion and shortly after that I switched to snowboarding. From 11 to 15 I was only snowboarding, inspired by the french movies « Apocalypse Snow » and people such as Régis Roland or Jean Nerva. But then I found out about back country skiing and went back on skis at a time where the gear just started to evolve massively.

In High School, if one of my teachers was not there for two hours I would run back home, get my skiing gear and go skiing in Les Arcs for some true moments of happiness before rushing back for the last lesson of the day.

I’ve never had lessons or been on a race course, and my technique is not that of a professional. But one thing is for sure, I love skiing!
