“I started to ski when I was two years old, I started to ski as soon as I could stand up! When I was a little girl, I was living half a year in the south of France and the other half in the Alps. Then I grew up and my passion for skiing grew up with me, every year a little bit more. So I decided to live in the mountains all year and ever since skiing took a giant place in my life. I reached the French National team in 2012 and I did my first World Cup in 2013.”
A Q&A With Laura Gauche
Gnarliest or scariest experience riding?
I can’t remember the worst. Off course as a racer I had a lot of crashes but then the aim is to forgot about it and return without fear on the field.
Favorite place to ski?
And my favorite place to ride is the ski area « Espace Killy » it includes Tignes resort with the one of Val d’Isère. It’s huge and you can do whatever you want, giant, downhill, freeski, freeride…
What's the perfect day of shredding to you?
It is absolutely a powder day just after a heavy snowfall when the sun is coming back.
