  • When and why did you start telemarking? I started when I was a teenager, it was my father who introduced me to this slide and I immediately got hooked.
  • What do you like about telemarking? The permanent balance game it requires, the fact of making an effort of style at each turn, to feel closer to the snow. I must admit, I like to have burning thighs too!
  • What do you like about Meidjo bindings? Lightness for the climb because I do a lot of touring, precision in the descent, progressiveness in bending... I was able to test these bindings when they were only at the prototype stage until the version we know today, we really tried to give our feeling and work on the development, Many small things have been improved since the 1st version.
  • What is your favorite place to telemark? Without being too chauvinistic, the Haute-Tarentaise is a must for telemark and for all other sports as well. I like La Grave very much too.
  • What is your next destination or place where you would like to go telemarking? Norway, a dream come true.
  • Did you compete? I no longer have a background as a freeride ski competitor, in telemark the competitions are summed up in the meije derby, 2 podiums, best result in 2018 for the moment with a 2nd place in telemark and a 14th place in scratch.
  • What is your job? Ski instructor, and telemark instructor! Specialized Off-Piste.
