Philippe Ligerot (ESF Serre Chevalier - Villeneuve) gave inspiration

Philippe Ligerot

In memory of Philippe Ligerot - ski instructor from ESF Serre Chevalier (Villeneuve)

"My visit to Serre Chevalier just before Grand Ski gave me a wonderful insight into how this amazing ski area can be of enormous empowerment to our beneficiaries. I had the great pleasure of going for an incredible day of snow-shoe walking up high and reaching little summits that really only those who are ski touring or with raquettes could reach. It was a very special day and one that gave me enormous rejuvenation – all due to an extraordinary ski and mountain guide, Philippe Ligerot, whose empathy and understanding of the mountains totally was in synergy with mine and the work Ski 2 Freedom does.

Very tragically just three days after this he was killed in an avalanche along with his client. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. However short a time I had known Philippe I am convinced that his passing will in some way guide us all to give thanks for the life we have and never to waste a second of it. " Catherine Cosby (Ski 2 Freedom)

"Ma visite à Serre-Chevalier juste avant Grand Ski m'a donné un merveilleux aperçu de comment ce domaine skiable peut être adapté pour nos bénéficiaires. J'ai eu grand plaisir à faire cette incroyable randonnée en raquette et à atteindre de petits sommets que des randonneurs à ski ou en raquette peuvent également atteindre. Ce fut une journée très spéciale , une de celle qui vous revivifie et vous rajeunit, ceci grâce à un extraordinaire guide de montagne, Philippe Ligerot, dont l'empathie et la compréhension de la montagne était en accord total avec la mienne et celle de Ski 2 Freedom.

Trois jours plus tard, Philippe et son client ont tragiquement été tués dans un avalanche. Toutes nos pensées et prières vont à leurs familles et amis. Même si je n'ai connu Philippe qu'un trop bref instant, je suis convaincue que d'une façon ou d'une autre son passage nous guide tous pour rendre grâce à la vie et ne jamais en gâcher la moindre seconde."
