I’m from a little town in the North East of France in between Les Voges and Le Jura, but I have lived in Méribel since 2003.
I started to snowboard in winter 1995 in the small ski resort of La Bresse which was open every Friday night with a snowpark. Then in 2000 I moved to the Alps. I completed a ski and snowboard repair course that enabled me to work in several shops in Val Thorens and in Méribel. This experience was good to complement my snowboarding knowledge.
It’s quite hard to choose one trick from all those you can do on your board… but Backside Air because there are so many ways styling it: you can do it Method, Japan, Tailbone or Nicolas Muller style (this one is tricky)… I love jibbing too! In the DC Area 43 park you can always find a good jib line.
Freestyler!!! Even though all good riders say “powder is the best!”, for me it’s even better with a freestyle touch.
Riding with my friends, sun and blue sky, a lot of powder, finding new spots and landing new tricks.
Teaching allows me to transmit my passion to people from all around the world. I feel happy when I see my clients improving their technique with a smile on their faces…. and I can ride all day!
Best job of the world!
Meribel is the heart of 3 Valleys so you can easily access Courchevel, Val Thorens, La Tania, Les Ménuires and Saint Martin de Belleville… there are infinite riding options.
The atmosphere here is really cool and the architecture is in tune with the mountains.
