EMILY HARROP, Champion - Courchevel - Ski mountaineering

My favorite run in Les 3 Vallées is the Courchevel 1650 “Les rochers” run, which I find playful and pretty, and is often sparsely populated.

An Innate Talent and a Passion for Challenges

Emily grew up surrounded by mountains, which shaped her love of skiing.

She was born with bindings on her feet and two poles in her hands.

Her English parents instilled in her a spirit of adventure, while the mountainous landscape of the Tarentaise fed her desire to take on ever greater challenges.

She turned to ski-mountaineering to express her versatility and passion for endurance.

A Champion from Courchevel with an Exceptional Journey

Although born in Sainte Foy, Emily proudly represents Courchevel, one of the jewels of the 3 Valleys.

Her track record is breathtaking.

Her performances bear witness to her talent, with a big Crystal Globe overall, a small Crystal Globe in sprint, as well as prestigious victories at the Pierra Menta and in several world championships.
