“Dru dans l'pentu !"
Germain, passionate instructor for 11 years, carefully observes his students to better adapt his teaching.
Originally from Orleans, Germain began skiing around the age of six and immediately became addicted to this sport with intense sensations. This is how he takes part in competitions for 10 years, during which he won in 2005 the first place in "Slalom" and "Parallel" of the Golden Ski of Alpe d'Huez.
Driven by the desire to transmit his knowledge, to allow people to improve and to share the pleasure of skiing, Germain decides to become an instructor. He joins the ESF, a school which he admires the irreproachable teaching, adapted to all ages and all winter sports. A school in which he has been teaching with the same exaltation for 11 seasons.
Germain defines his teaching method as a sort of "behaviorism" : he relies heavily on observing the behavior of his students on the slopes, in order to develop the best teaching strategy possible.
This very attentive instructor, who taught in Saint Sorlin, La Plagne, Les Menuires and Val Thorens, always wanted to come to Courchevel, a resort he could not forget. Germain is therefore very happy to teach and live there all year long, in the Jardin Alpin neighborhood. The smiles of his clients throughout the day are his finest rewards. Seeing the joy of his students when they get to progress gives him a lot of happiness.
Speed, adrenaline, the sound of a cold snow under the skis, the powder snow flying... Germain loves all that in skiing. Feelings of pure communion with nature that he would like, one day, to feel on foreign slopes like those of Japan, his dream destination.
Germain, who was also a sailing and water ski instructor, works in the building industry, more specifically in interior renovation. Addicted to thrills, he likes all winter sports able to provide him adrenaline. He is also a movie fan and a music lover !
His favorite slope on the area is the amazing Jean Blanc, but he also likes to ski on other more accessible routes, such as that of the "Indiens". As for off-piste skiing, Germain recommends Le Col du Fruit or Le Dou des Lanches. To escape and let your mind go blank, the instructor can meet you at Les Avales.
His list of the most beautiful slopes in the world : Harakiri (Austria), Face de Bellevarde (Val D'Isère), Streif (Austria), Grand Couloir (Courchevel) and Jerusalem (St Martin De Belleville).
