A part of my story :
I m French-Norwegian.
My mother, Hege, is Norwegian, and my father, Claude, is as you guess, French.
Thanks to my parents, I started skiing at the age of two.
I made my first turns on the slopes just next to Hotel Annapurna (our family hotel). Since than, skiing has always been a big part of my life.
My sister, brother and I were always between Courchevel and Annecy.
Winter has guided our lifes.
My older sister is working into the family Hotel. While my little brother, would rather like to go the sports way.
Since I became World Junior Champion for the first time in 2009, every thing happened faster in my life.
At that time my futur in ski became clear.
Live your dreams ! That’s the best advice I can give …
