Louise Borgnet, nouvelle athlète Millet en Ski-alpinisme, et grand espoir pour l'avenir!

« I was lucky enough to be born in Haute-Savoie, and as such my parents did not forget to show me the beauty of the mountains. Now, I particularly like walking, hiking or skiing, and each time I go I realize that I am very lucky to know these great outdoors.

In 2009 I started ski-mountaineering in a beginner’s course with the French Alpine Club in Annecy. I really enjoyed it, and when I was proposed to compete in high-level competitions, I did not refuse!

Although I am now a competitor, I’ve kept this particular mountain spirit, and I am still filled with wonder when facing the Nature. Therefore I also practice mountaineering and climbing as often as I can, to keep this close contact with the mountains.”

We wish her all the best for her future competitions, go Louise!
