Emilien Bruchez: Young ski prodigy

He's 16 years old, studying sports at the Martigny business school and has been passionate about skiing since the age of 3. Almost every day of the season, you can find him on skis enthusiastically engaging in freeride training and savoring every moment with pleasure. He participates in competitions such as the Freeride Worldtour Junior and aims even further in the coming years. 

Laurence Barrau: A daily ray of sunshine

Originally from the Pyrenees, Lolo loves snowboarding. For her, snowboarding is all about sharing, making friends and having fun. Her passion for freeriding came later, when she started competing. This season, she is aiming not only for backflips and wildcats, but also for good results in competitions. 

Samuel Gave: A dad who rocks 

Sam has dedicated his life to snow sports and describes snowboarding as freedom. He is now responsible for the snowboard section at the ESS in Verbier and also works on instructor training with Swiss Snowsports. His plan for this season with the Snowboard School is to set up a snowboard club for children in the valley as well as develop the Freeride Snowboard Club. But above all, he'd like to be able to take time for himself and ride with his daughter. 

Tiphanie Perrotin: Committed and passionate

Physiotherapist in summer, snowboarder in winter, Tiphanie is originally from Haute Savoie and describes snowboarding as her way of life, her passion. She organized the "Find your Line" event in Verbier in January, an event especially made for female snowboarders. Her goals for this season are to take more photos and videos, to push herself more, to ride faces that she hasn't yet ridden and steep slopes, go snowboarding in Canada and of course to take part in competitions.
