Julien Lizeroux, the fighter / Downhill skiing, slalom

The oldest member of the French slalom team has had an exemplary career. A career which in itself gives you an idea of Julien’s tenacity and self-sacrifice. His first appearance in the French team was in 1997. He has suffered a number of injuries throughout his career but has still achieved impressive results: 3 Winter Olympics, World Championship medals, World Cup results… he has also managed to combine his discipline and his favourite resort with the Super Slalom, an event that lives up to the man himself!

Tess Ledeux, the precocious talent / Freestyle Skiing, slopestyle

If the élite of women’s freestyle skiing are mostly aged over 20, the younger skiers with a thirst for victory are training hard to change that. This is certainly the case for Tess Ledeux who was French slopestyle champion at just 15. Noted for her ease and determination to jump high that surpassed even that of her male counterparts, Tess was rapidly ready for the big league. She shares her desire to win with her cousin, Kévin Rolland.

Antoine Adelisse, the creative one / Ski freestyle, slopestyle

Always in search of new places to play, Antoine soon dropped the more traditional disciplines to devote himself to freestyle skiing and develop his own style in the snow parks. In 2014, aged just 16, he qualified for the Sochi Winter Olympics, the first Games to include slopestyle.

Kévin Roland, the unshakeable one / Ski freestyle, half pipe

Multiple winner of the X Games and Olympic medallist, this great freestyle skier needs no introduction... Kévin Roland flies rather than skis. He invents new tricks, like the double cork 1260, and works on them in training until he nails them. This has caused some impressive falls, but he always gets back up. Away from competition, he enjoys making freestyle skiing videos, an opportunity for him to offer his many fans stunning images that combine adrenalin, precision and technical prowess. You can see him in Fast Forward I & II and his latest film, “Oh My Ghost”, wild chases across La Plagne where everyone holds their breath!

This wasn’t enough for Romain, however, who decided to move to the front of the bob by becoming a pilot.
