Claude Schneider – Snow specialist

The resort’s best-known moustache!

With his 30 years’ experience in snow studies, Claude is the resort’s expert reference. Armed with his equipment, just like a Sherlock Holmes of the snow, he examines the snow cover in detail every day, studying the particles, recording all the data and analysing possible scenarios in avalanche risk areas. He is a veritable goldmine of information in the ski patrol service.

He loved last season’s record snowfall since the start of his career: a total of 9.22 m of snow fell between 1/11/2017 and 30/04/2018!
