Yoann Sert – Outdoor sports
The outdoor sports specialist
Having grown up in the Chartreuse mountains, Yoann has been an outdoor sports enthusiast from a very young age.
Moving to the Tarentaise for work eight years ago, he now lives in Séez, down the mountain from the resort of La Rosière, where he scales the mountainside on his touring skis in winter and on his road bike, mountain bike or on foot in summer.
The mountain trails hold no secrets for Yoann!
“La Rosière is an ideal playground for training and having fun. It was one of the first resorts to push the development of outdoor sports, thanks to its wonderful marked itineraries for ski touring, trail running and mountain biking.
The best thing is that you can train all day long without retracing your steps and there’s so much variety in the terrain: lower down, there’s the spruce forest with its carpet of moss and pine needles, and up top you get a real taste of the mountains with high-altitude lakes and breathtaking scenery!”
This winter, Yoann will represent the resort in ski mountaineering races such as the legendary Pierra Menta.
In the spring, he will put his skis away and dust down his bike and running shoes to take part in races organised by the resort, such as the Trail de la Rosière and the weekly uphill cycle races, for which he holds the current record!
