Simone Le Grand

Dark Starts backcountry splitboarding podcast presents Swiss splitboarder and big aspect rider, Simone Le Grand.

  • Grew up skiing in the Swiss mountains and discovered snowboarding and fell in love with the sport.

  • Competed in halpipe and freeride and picked up some sponsors along the way, and currently rides for Jones, Karakoram and Haglofs.

  • Living in the mountain village of Engleberg, she has close access to spend her mornings touring and evenings working on her design and massage businesses.

 

This week we travel to faraway lands and discover the delights of Switzerland. Simone loves to ride the gnarliest aspects in the Alps, and lives to tell us all about her adventures. Avalanches are a constant risk when you’re in the mountains, and they have had a profound impact on her life. If you’ve ever wanted to shred above the tree line, this episode is for you!
