“I choose to ski with Bollé because I love the spirit, the products are very technical, professional and also very stylish! I really appreciate the quality of the line.”

“I started skiing at the age of 2 and I used to ski year round as my parents were ski instructors and we would live the whole year in winter weather. At 15 years old, I began skiing at the international level. My first World Cup in 2006 at 16 years old was a dream, I loved the snow, the atmosphere, the pressure… and I managed to score my first points. In 2008 I had my first victory and since then, I’m trying to become one of the best female GS skiers in the world. In 2013 in Schladming I had a taste of what I’ve been looking for when I won Gold medal at the World Championships. Unfortunately, I was injured in December 2013 but now I’m back on skis and feeling better !! So my story will continue…”
