A child of Ubaye Valley
Your first memory on skis? What do you love about the Alpes de Haute Provence ski slopes? What makes them different?
I come from a family of skiers: my dad, grandma and grandad were all ski instructors at Sauze in the Alpes de Haute-Provence. As soon as I could walk, my dad put me on skis and I learnt to ski in Le Sauze. I love it here – our ski domains and valleys are very cosy and friendly just like the people who live here. There’s a huge variety of slopes too and you can go from one side of the mountains to the other really easily. The landscapes are both beautiful and easily-accessible, with summits, rock faces and larches as far as the eye can see… Of course, I’ll always remember the day I won the under-14 French Cup: I was fresh out of my local club and suddenly found myself with all these people from all over France. It was amazing and very moving.
