Claude Vallier

A lifetime skier, Claude was born and raised in a small village of the French Alps, in the middle of the mountains, a few meters away from the ski lifts. So mountains quickly became his natural environment, office and playground.

He has spent most of his life in the mountains, continuing as an adult for work as a mountain search and rescue professional, ski instructor, ski patrol or just for fun. So for him, mountains are everything, it his a way of life.

Attracted by even more nature and the wilderness, 13 years ago he moved to the Yukon with his family. Still involved with mountain Rescue. Is constantly exploring beautiful mountains and looking fo the best ski lines.

He already wrote 2 guide books with the best backcountry skiing routes between Yukon and Alaska. He has been skiing for Zag and Plum for over 10 years.
