— Noemie Lemaire
Hi, I’m Noémie. I joined Oxygene in 2015 whilst I was still completing my ski instructor training. Last season I passed my penultimate exam with the support of Oxygene and will be taking my final exam this coming season. Since I was young I have had a passion for skiing and competed regularly in slalom races. I recently took up free-riding and I decided to put myself forward to compete in some Freeride World Qualifier (FWQ) competitions. I was really happy with my first results which were great and wanted to see if I could continue to compete so I asked Oxygene if they would support me. My goal this season is to gain enough points on the FWQ circuit to compete in the Freeride World Tour. Oxygene has been really supportive. They are sponsoring me for the coming season and allowing me the time off to compete. I would definitely recommend working for Oxygene, it’s a great team and a great working environment.
