UIAGM Mountain Guide

​I remember how everything started back in the days when I was, like all the kids from my village in Maurienne, training with the local ski club. All the focus was on racing. But unlike all the others, my cousins and me were definitely more attracted by powder and playing in the forest, to the point that the trainers of the club had to create an off-piste group !

As years went by, my passion for mountains grew bigger, and I was finally selected to be in a team of young french climbers that were going to be trained to become top alpinists. After a wonderful time with those guys, I went into the guide education and got the diploma in 2006. During that prior I got also certified as a ski patroller, and that’s how I begun my career : guiding in the summer, and patrolling the pistes of La Norma and Orelle Val Thorens for about ten years. The best was of course the avalanche bombing !

Then I decided to work as a guide full time, and my two first winters were spent in Val d’Isère. Now I’m enjoying snow both in my home valley, the Maurienne, and in the wonderful mountains of northern Norway as much as possible.

See you there !
