“I’m particularly attached to Bollé because they support me since a long time and believed in me before I reached the World Cup. Their products are made of undeniable quality and bring me a comfort I can’t do without.”

“I started skiing with my parents in La Fouly at 2 years old. Then I joined the local ski club because it was fun and all my friends were there. At the age of 12, things became more serious as I joined the regional team. Since then I kept improving and moving up the ranks until I joined the Swiss C team in 2011. Then I competed in my first World Cup in 2012, scored my first World Cup points in January 2014. I’m still searching for my first podium but I have finished amongst the 15 best slalom skiers for the past two seasons.”

  • At what age did you start your discipline? I started skiing at 2 years old and get really competitive at 12 years old.

  • What is your main objective in your sport career? If I end my career with no regrets that would be an accomplishment in itself. I obviously dream about World Cup victories and Olympic glory but I would qualify those as dreams rather than objectives.
  •  What is your main objective in your personal life? Spend as much time as I can with a smile on my face.
  •  Do you have a particular habit, a ritual before a competition? I always put my right ski on first.

  • What is your favorite place to rest? At home. Nothing beats a lazy day at home.

    which one but we spend our time chasing snow so for my holidays I like to go somewhere warm by the sea
