A Fellow's Tale: Zian Perrot-Couttet's Mountain Story

« A Fellow's Tale: Zian Perrot-Couttet's Mountain Story »

Dive deep into the world of Vuarnet’s Fellowship Alpine Emissary Program through A Fellow’s Tale: Mountain Stories, a collection of alpine vignettes.

« I don't know how to explain it, but: when you're not in the mountains, all you want to do is go back »

Zian Perrot-Couttet discovered his passion for riding steep lines after an expedition to Aiguille du Belvédère when “I still had no experience other than holding on to a board.” That first taste left Zian wanting more. He joined CHX Snowboard Club’s new freeride group and learned mountain safety as he took on more challenges. As his experience grew, so too did his love for the high-altitude environment. Zian is currently pursuing a career with the Peloton de gendarmerie de haute montagne (PGHM) in Chamonix. 
A Fellow’s Tale: Mountain Stories is a collection of vignettes from the Vuarnet Fellowship Alpine Emissary Program. Vuarnet Fellows are relentless explorers and athletes, just as Vuarnet is relentless in our dedication to craftsmanship and quality protection. The Fellowship is an inclusive space that fosters an extraordinary sense of community in celebration of our inherent quest to commune with the mountains. A Fellow’s Tale explores the human side of experience, the desire to transcend ourselves and our Fellows’ essential need to pursue their particular paths in life.
