Great lover of photography, Thai-chi and nature, Chany is also a skilled skateboarder. He is one of the first Swiss to have crossed the Atlantic to live his passion. For 25 years, he has been riding most of the skateparks in the USA and around the world. He even received a recommendation from Tony Hawk to get his green card and stay in Uncle Sam's country.... But his life has not been so smooth... Buy him a drink and he'll be happy to tell you his story.
Even if its Greek name does not indicate it, Paris was born in Valais and chose snowboarding rather than wrestling! The great outdoors, freedom, nature: this is what animates him every day. To spice it up, he competes in the Freeride World Qualifier and hopes one day to be able to challenge the best riders of the Tour. And when it comes to send it, he's always there. He also likes to have fun on the Big Air and Alaïa's trampolines, just to improve his moves.
With his Berlin hypster style, it looks like Greg got lost when he arrived at the Alaïa Chalet. But think again, behind this appearance, he is a true action sports enthusiast with more than 6 years as a rider at Rossignol and 10 years as a ski instructor. The transmission of knowledge is in the DNA of this ski and rollerblade fan. And in addition, in his spare time, he likes to practice another street art: graffiti....
At the age of 23, Benjamin is the team's youngest member. But don't rely on this detail, the value doesn't wait for the number of years. After going to Brig's sports school, he studied to become a mason and spent most of his free time on skis. He likes to send heavy stuff on the snowpark in Crans-Montana and to publish his edits on social media. During the summer, if he is not on a glacier, he takes out his deck or kitesurf for a little ride. And if you like, he organizes after-parties in his flat located just 5 minutes away from the Chalet.
With his Dr. Evil look, for sure, Yann will surprise you. This freestyle snowboard specialist travelled around the world in the early 2000s. He became a coach of the Valais Snowboard Freestyle team and coached Pat Burgener in his early days. Moreover, between the half-pipe and Yann, there is like an endless love story. While some rush on the virgin slopes after snowfalls, he will prefer to go up to the snowpark for some air-time. So now you know, if you want to improve your tricks, Yann is the right person to give you some advice.
Always present in the Chalet, Paul is a bit like our "Huggy Bear": if you have a problem, he will certainly find the solution! This ski and skate enthusiast has worked for 10 years in safety, so you'll still have to be careful, not that he gets angry. But we reassure you, he is calm but forceful and he likes good Senegalese dishes (yeah, true fact) and hip hop! So if you don't want any trouble, you know what to do...
Underneath this long Canadian lumberjack beard is a young 23-year-old boy. Yes, Adam is a young entrepreneur with one goal: to make action sports accessible to everyone. Passionate about surfing, skiing and skating, he has travelled to the best spots around the world to get inspired by the atmosphere and bring it back to Switzerland. And on top of that, this 1.95m tall giant holds a degree in sound engineering. So don't be surprised to find him regularly behind the turntables at night to set the mood !
Bruno is passionate about board sports and began his career in a civil engineering office. Then, his passion gradually turned into his daily job with the opening of a surf shop, then distributing Volcom in Switzerland and managing Volcom-Europe for 10 years in France. By the way, you won't be able to miss him, he always wears hoodies of his favorite brand... The gossip says also that he used to organize the best ISPO parties... You'll have to ask him if it's true!
With her curly mane, you can't miss her in the chalet: Iovka is our Bulgarian lioness. Daughter of entrepreneurs, she has worked in managerial positions in various international groups in the agri-food, luxury and leisure business. Mother of 2 children, she is full of good humour and energy that she puts to good use in her work and her favourite sports: wakesurfing, snowboarding and jogging. And if you want to soften her up, she easily falls for a chocolate bar with toasted almonds.
Between his ski touring gears and his trail shoes, we don't really know what Vincent is doing at Alaïa. We heard that he promoted a famous ski resort and that he also loves surfing and skiing (and especially après-ski). Not sure if you'll meet him on the ramps, but on the other hand, he'll always be up for a beer at the Bar.
At Alaïa Chalet, everyone finds what they are looking for! Even if you are not a rider, you can come to the Bar and watch the show with a good coffee or cocktail in hand. If you're hungry, don't worry, you'll certainly to find something in our menu that will fill up your energy level!
