Born and grew up in Tignes and Val D’Isere.
Learnt to ski:
As soon as I could stand on my feet my father put me on skis (1,5 years old).
Most likely to be skiing on:
I ski on Volkl – I love my big fat Revolt 121 for big days then I’ve got the Mantra which are very versatile skis (good carvers and good all mountain).
Favourite area for teaching:
I love to teach around the Altiport for beginers (it’s the perfect place to learn). For intermediate skiers I think all the Courchevel area is a blast with all those nice blue runs groomed perfectly. And for more expert skiers the top of Courchevel and the red and black runs in Meribel are good value.
Favourite area for off-piste adventures:
Where the snow is good!!!!! We have a big area so I like to change and adapt my choice to the snow condition in order to find the good snow…. but definitely the Raffort area in Meribel and the Aiguille du Fruit are a couple of my favourite spots….. and also not forgetting the Vallée des Avals for hiking and tranquility.
Can most often be found after skiing:
These times you can mostly find me back home taking care of my son but some days I like to go a bit crazy with some après usually the Ronnie or LDV or just a good beer with friends at the fifty 50.
Preferred choice of Savoyarde speciality dish:
A nice fondue in good company and good wine of course!!!!!
Top 2 restaurants on the hill:
Cave des Creux wich is a bit expensive but really worth it and then the Blanchot for the food on the full sunny terrasse.
Favourite restaurant off the hill:
Le Farcon (one michelin star) in La Tania so good for a nice dinner, the Martagon in the Raffort is also a really good choice and less expensive or if you want something different then Tsaretta Spice….
Local bar of choice:
The fifty 50 is a great local bar, the Ronnie for apres and La Tsaretta for more relaxing beer down in Les Allues.
Best view in the 3 Valleys:
Top of Mont Vallon and Olympiques chairlift.
Best advice (skiing related):
If you have fun and enjoy then theimprovment will come – skiing must stay a game!!
Never spend a day on the hill without:
A smile, a neck warmer and some good mittens.
