Jules Socié

I've always had a passion for snow sports and the mountains. I began my career in alpine skiing at the age of 18 with the Flaine sports club, where I'm from, and then with the Mont Blanc committee in FIS competitions. I'm now focusing on mountain skiing and mountaineering, mainly in the Mont Blanc massif, but also elsewhere in the Alps, the Andes and the Himalayas. Today, I want to push my limits as a skier and mountaineer, seeking out ever more technical lines and higher altitudes.

My best mountain memory:

Probably my arrival at the summit of Tocllaraju in Peru. It was the first time we'd all climbed together, our first 6000m, with friends who had become very close. It was also the first time we'd done the North Stop, 23 years after snowboarding legend Marco Siffredi.


What does Vuarnet mean to me?

For me, Vuarnet is a legendary brand that I've known all my life. French know-how that protects my eyes in all circumstances. From great outdoor goggles in the mountains to everyday life.


The mantra that drives me:

Enjoy life, there are so many activities to discover the mountains in all their forms.
