Specialized in competitions, Sylvain has been an esf Méribel instructor since 2006!


Sylvain started skiing at the age of 3 with the help of his dad. His first glide resulted in broken skis, which is why his parents enrolled him in esf Méribel ski lessons. Until the age of 18, he took part in alpine skiing competitions on the FIS international circuit as well as in the Giant discipline. After he stopped competing, he decided to become a ski instructor as it was important for him to stay in the skiing world and to use all these years of passion and training. Sylvain bases his pedagogy on fun, adaptation and savoir-faire in order for the clients to enjoy their lessons. To him, esf represents fun, safety and family spirit. 

When he is not teaching his techniques, Sylvain is a digital consultant and has been for about ten years. His main interests are : kite surfing, mountain biking, motorbiking, italian food and also the piano. Concerning the resorts around the world, Sylvain has been able to discover many of them thanks to competitions, notably in Iran, Austria, Switzerland, Italy and Belgium. On the resort of Méribel, his favourite slopes are the Combe Tougnète, the Face and the Combe de Saulire.
