Season's highlights


Best memorable session : When I won the Cristal Globe in La Plagne (my resort). That was just incredible, all my family, my friends, my “fan”. So sick.

Best trip until now : Every trip we made with the Freeski project are really cool. Just need to be with the good person. And I am.

Skiing background : I started Freestyle skiing when I was 11 years old with the La Plagne sports club. At beginning, like everyone, I’ve practiced Moguls, Slopestyle and Halfpipe. I loved Halfpipe and that’s why, when I was 15/16 years old, I choose this one. After many years of trainings with the La Plagne Sports Club and the Comité de Savoie, I took part of the Freeski Project with Kevin Rolland, Xavier Bertoni, Thomas Krief et Greg Guenet (Coach). Next, I took the first place on the Overall of the SFR Freeskiing Tour and I started to think about the international competition. With hard work, motivation, a good team, a perfect coach (thanks to him), I realised my dream : Be a professional skier.
