Don’t hesitate to ask any questions while in store!
I started skiing at the age of two in the Chamonix and since then have spent as much much time as possible in the mountains.
After finishing my masters degree in sports engineering I headed to the Three Valleys to complete a CMPC ski technician training course and spent winter 2011 working as a ski man and doing what I loves most, skiing!!!.
I fell in love with the Three Valleys and Meribel in particular, one season led to three and when the opportunity of owning my own ski rental shop arose at Sports 1600 it was fate.
I love all the equipment that goes with mountain sports as much as the snow and enjoy helping people find of the best equipment possible enabling them to experience and enjoy the mountains as I do.
I started snowboarding in 2004 when I took part in a team building trip with work and instantly fell in love with the mountains and Meribel.
After that week followed numerous ski holidays and eight working seasons enjoying and getting to know the three valleys. It was in 2011 that I decided to take the plunge and moved out to Meribel to live.
Using my background in retail and design helped me get a sales job at Sports1600. I worked closely with the then owner, buying, marketing and running the ski clothing and accessories department. When the opportunity arose to buy and take over Sports1600 it was an easy decision.
I love the mountains and the lifestyle and being able to provide a service so that others can experience the mountains as we know them is great.
What I love the most about skiing and boarding is heading out on the mountain with my mates. Getting out in the fresh air and the sensation of almost flying when i'm heading down the piste.
