Réallon: the training grounds of Laetitia Roux
Laetitia Roux, world champion 2010 of ski mountaineering, won the world cup in 2008 and 2009, was born in Savines-le-Lac. She regularly trains on the slopes of Réallon. Every January, a ski mountaineering race named after her is organised in her favourite resort, the « Laetitia Roux ».
The 25 years old champion keeps pursuing a promising career and reaching for the stars. Living her dreams gives her even more strength to stay within the best skiers of this discipline.

"My father communicated his values and his passion for sport and mountain when I was very young. So I easily found my way. My world is made of sport, passion, travels, feelings and competition. My competitive mind, my determination and my combativeness took me very far. I have this need of always challenging myself, giving myself harder and harder goals, enforcing more rules in order to keep going as far as I can, in surpassing myself and in searching for sensations and feelings.
I like to be constant, in sport and in life. I have built myself establishing connections with other people. Those people have inspired me to become who I am. Today, I am proud that it is my turn to pass on my values and inspire happiness to others. Ski mountaineering is expanding right now.
In 2002 were organised the first world championships, but we have one last aim to reach so that our discipline is officially one: the Olympic Games! It is my childhood dream to take part to it, but it is also the little push that would take the ski mountaineering to the international level. »

The 3rd edition of the Laetitia Roux took place on Saturday 18th December, for the opening of the resort.
It was a grand event, bathed in the magical and friendly atmosphere we have come to expect year after year. A thousand candles lighting up the way and the helium balloon floating in the air at the finish line teamed up with a nearly full moon to carry the runners in a magical universe.
Unfortunately, the nature in full harmony with the event had also covered the final corridor in ice, which made its ascent too dangerous. Never defeated, the organisation replaced it with a grand finish line on the ridge, by the viewpoint indicator, overlooking the lake of Serre-Ponçon, crossed by its lit up bridge towards Savines-le-Lac, as if the valley was also decorated for this special day.
As always, and in spite of the temperatures going as low as - 15°C, the hundred runners appreciated this event thanks to the ultra-motivated team of volunteers. » .
