Richard Etellin Ski Instructor at Chamonix Cross Country Skiing
Born and raised in Chamonix, my origins have fuelled my passion for mountain sports and motivated me to make them my career. I enjoy the contact with both my French and International clientele and find it very rewarding.
Father of two young boys, I have designed and built our own chalet in the style typical to this region. We count ourselves lucky to posses sufficient land to cultivate a selection of our own fruit and vegetables, and raise a small flock of chickens.
Passionate about sport, I enjoy running ultra-marathons and Mountain biking; they keep me fit too!
My objective professional is to share with you my enthusiasm for the various sports (Skiing, Mountain Biking, Trail Running, Hiking and Yoga), that I practice daily, in the incredible destination of the Chamonix valley and beyond.
I am professionally qualified in the following disciplines.
– Ski instructor and ski club coach. High school coach since 1999.
-Mountain Bike instructor
