We Rise – Rossignol Women

Q&A with Gabrielle SIMONEAU

Q&A with Gabrielle SIMONEAU, Rossignol Women program influencer.

Who are you? Tell us more about where you live, what you do, what you like…

I am a short East Coast girl. I raced all my childhood until I began university here in Quebec. As I stopped racing, I felt the urge to be a part of a bigger community. I wanted to see more girls shred and rip on the slopes.

Why did you apply to become a Rossignol Women ambassador?


I never skied anything else than Rossignol Skis. When I first heard of the We Rise movement, I automatically wanted to be a part of it. Rossignol Women represents my vision of women in the ski industry and my values of the sport !

What’s your favorite product in our ranges?


The new Rally Bird Ti, perfect for going fast on steep hills !!

When you’re not skiing in winter, you’re biking or hiking in summer. What do you like in outdoor sports?

In the summer, I spend most of my free time mountain biking. It is such a great training to be in the best shape when winter comes. I also enjoy gravel biking as well as road biking. As long as it has two wheels, I’m down !

You’re a freerider, what do you like in this discipline?


There is no rules in freeriding. That’s what I like the most of it.

What are your favorite places to ski/snowboard?


The Canadian West Coast is hard to beat. From British Colombia to Alberta, the play ground is HUGE. But there is nothing like the small hill I’m lucky to call Home: Stoneham.

Who’s your favorite athlete? Why?

Tatum Monod, hands down. She is SO versatile, she can hop on a snowboard and shred as much as on her skis. She inspires me a lot.

What’s your motto in your life?

Make it worth remembering.
