Charlotte's passion for skiing started from an early age.  Already at two years old she put skis on for the first time and from then on nothing could stop her!  Being so determined, she was quickly able to ski on her own.

 

Her mother is a ski instructor and so too her father who has also worked as a ski trainer.  And so, Charlotte was immersed in skiing which very quickly became her passion.

 

At the age of 8 years old, she started in her local ski club in Villars and was very soon selected to join Ski Romand.  At 15 years old, she was accepted to the National Performance Centre at Brig where she was able to carry on her business studies alongside her skiing and eventually to get her diploma.  Her academic results as well as her sporting achievements are of the highest level.

 

In May of 2012, Charlotte moved up the ranks in Ski Romand but unfortunately in the December suffered a setback: the season came to an abrupt end when she tore her cruciate ligament.  She worked hard to get back and eventually started the season by winning a FIS race but luck was not with her and again she tore cruciate ligaments but in the other knee - this meant that she was out for the whole season.  This was difficult to swallow but her desire to succeed was stronger.  Her rehabilitation was perfect and the results prove this as she was selected for the European Cup.  However, as the proverb goes things happen in 3s and on the day she started in the European Cup, she broke her foot and this meant the third season was wiped out.

 

In Autumn of 2014, she came back with such unprecedented determination...In December, Charlotte was sent straight away to the European Cup and was able to finish in 3rd and 4th place in the slalom within a few days.  Her great achievement did not go unnoticed and she was selected unexpectedly for the World Championships in Vail in the USA.  There she surprised us all by finishing 15th in the slalom ahead of all the other swiss girls...  She then confirmed her form by finishing 11th in the World Cup race in Malabor.  She was guaranteed starts in The World Cup for 2015-2016 and this was the start of a magnificent adventure:-)

 

After her starts in the World Cup, Charlotte would take part in all the World Cup slaloms the following season.  She started strongly with a 9th place finish in Aspen and then following races were more difficult when she came out of the pistes..  She did get us excited on occasions especially in Santa Caterina when she was coming 2nd after the first leg!  Unfortunately, she was not able to sustain the same form in the second leg and fell just a few gates from the finish.  But as one says, we learn from our mistakes and Charlotte knows the she can be amongst the best in the world.  With this in mind, she is able to find more determination than ever to come back stronger after her Summer training!
