Léo Coppel – Alpine skiing

Like all children in the valley, Léo started downhill skiing at the age of 6. At the same time, he played a lot of ice hockey at a high level.

At ease on skis as much as on skates, Léo had to make a choice: “To continue playing hockey at top-level, I had to go abroad and I wanted to stay in France so I chose skiing. I don’t regret it because I love board sports“.

ALL board sports ! Once summer is there, Léo spends most of his time on the West Coast surfing or wakesurfing. And when he comes back to Les Gets, it’s for riding in the Bikepark for downhill mountain bike sessions with his friends.                          

In 2018, Léo joined the ISF and is part of the elite group of the Mont Blanc Committee. His ambition for this season 2020-2021: to be well ranked in the U18 circuits in order to take part in the French U18 championships, and why not aim for victory. That’s all we wish him!

Regarding his educational background, Léo has joined the National Training Centre (CNE) in Albertville in order to obtain his baccalaureate in 4 years.
