Born in 1977, Brice grew up in the French Alps and from a young age has always had a passion for the mountains. Those early years spent skiing and snowboarding led to several years on the French national freestyle skiing team, culminating in becoming European Champion in 1996, when he was only 19.
Brice subsequently left the team to focus on becoming a professional freeride and freestyle skier. After just a year he won the X Games in 1999. Never one to sit still, he then turned his attention to mountaineering: a natural progression after years spent honing his skills as a freeride skier. Through the help of sponsorship, Brice spent the following years discovering the world: climbing and skiing places that few people have visited, let alone skied. A particular, and unique challenge, was in 2003 when he climbed Everest up to 8800 meters before making a descent on skis down the Nepalese side.
Brice left the world of professional skiing in 2006 to become a fully qualified ski guide (French and Canadian certification). Over the years he has built up a loyal clientele of top skiers from all around the world who enjoy the company of a guide that can teach, guide, and accompany them on trips, professionally documenting them using a variety of media.
In 2009 Brice started EliteSkiTravel together with his longtime traveling and riding friends Florent Chretien and his wife Aurelia. Elite specialises in tailor-made high-end skiing and adventure trips. Through Elite, Brice continues to travel the world and is very privileged to have access to the very best facilities and experiences around the globe. He has spent every summer since 2005 as a heli-ski guide in Chile for AndesHeliboarding and during the winter is based out of Meribel in the 3 Valleys in France. He spend close to half of his winter guiding Heliski in Canada. He has also been a key individual in the development of heliskiing in the Karakorum in Pakistan. When he is not skiing Brice is a very keen surfer and takes any chance to jump on a plane to catch waves. A father of two young children, whom he adores, he shares his life with Aude an emergency doctor he met in 2003 while climbing Everest.
During his years spent traveling, skiing and sailing the world’s oceans, Brice’s adventure’s were frequently the subject of documentaries in skiing and travel magazines as well as on film. During that time he developed his most vivid passion: photography. This was born out of his friendship and collaboration with the renowned photographer Philippe Rebreyend with Brice’s focus turning from his role as a subject on film to a director, capturing the remarkable places and experiences he has enjoyed.
Those trips, many of which are on this website, include: New Zealand, Australia, Samoa, French Polynesia, Indonesia, Singapore, Japan, Russia, Spitzbergen, Sweden, Norway, Finland, France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, the UK, Tunisia, Senegal, Cabo Verde, Madagascar, South Africa, Mozambique, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, USA, Canada, Alaska, Greenland, Nepal, India and Pakistan. Brice now looks forward to adding to this list in the years to come.
After having used the Argentic Canon EOS3 for many years, Brice is using today a Canon 5D Mark IV with mainly Canon lenses.
