National certificate of alpine skiing instructor

I was born in Briançon and I first started skiing at 3 years old in Aiguilles en Queyras.

Then from 6 to 12, I took technique and race classes a the ski club to finally run in regional competitions.

In 1991, I started teaching ski techniques in differents ski resorts: Puy St Vincent, Queyras Valley, Risoul, Montgenèvre, La Plagne, Val Thorens, and Sestrière in Italy.

I eventually settled down in Serre-Chevalier, Villeneuve La Salle (for more details, go to “Resorts”): I was charmed by the size, 250 km (155 miles) of ski slopes, a domain that kept a humanly ad friendly size, with its small villages…




My passion? To share my knowledge of the snow, the slopes, the mountain, the off piste…
