Philippe Troubat, ski, snowboard and off-piste instructor in Les Arcs

You can get off the beaten tracks even in the most civilized places!
Based in Arc 1600, my playground spans the best resorts in the area: Les Arcs, La Plagne, La Rosière, Sainte-Foy, Tignes, Val d’Isère, with the wilder Beaufortain mountains as a bonus.
But did you know that these world famous ski areas, known by all ski lovers, also host the best off-piste and ski touring routes? I spent the last 35 years exploring them, summer and winter, skiing, paragliding, kayaking or mountain biking.

Born for this

I am a true mountain person and love riding in all its forms. I grew up in les Arcs and started skiing as a toddler. After years in alpine racing, I moved towards mountain skiing, off-piste, ski touring, mountaineering. As a pro-rider and competitor on the Freeride World Tour I discovered the most amazing ski destinations in the world and got better at mountain knowledge and safety, techniques, conditions… Today what drives me is to share that enduring passion and my knowledge with visitors from all around the world.
