Patrick was born in the mountains, in Chamonix. As a real mountains lover, he starts skiing very early, at the age of 2, and immediately falls in love with this winter sport. Quickly, Patrick feels the desire to try competition. This is how he participates in skiing World Cup four seasons in a row, than, and handled the preparation of the slalomers' skis of the French Team. During this period, he also equips Rok PETROVIC, youngest “Slalom” winner in the World Cup, but also Alexander ZHIROV, winner of the Crystal Globe of the Giant World Cup at the beginning of the eighties.
Patrick knows Courchevel well, since he worked there as a ski technician for Rossignol, and hit the slopes guided by several skiers members of the French Team, such as Patrick LAMOTTE or Alain NAVILLOD.
It is in 1998 that Patrick becomes an instructor on the area, when he is called to help in the ranks of the ESF of Courchevel by Didier CRETIN, during a week of February.

Other landscapes and different atmospheres that will never replace Courchevel in his heart.
His best memories as an instructor are moments with his students, when they are surprised to push their limits with as much ease.
