A major ski enthusiast since the age of 2, Romain Détraz quickly developed a taste for speed and the sliding action that this sport offers. However, he came relatively late to competitive alpine skiing, at around the age of 10. A few years later, he felt that he needed something more. This is when he discovered ski cross, purely by chance when taking part in a fun race. He knew straight away that this was a discipline made for him. Romain took his first steps in this discipline in 2009, and has been part of the Swiss ski cross team since 2014. He is now competing on the World Cup circuit.
Romain Détraz has been skiing in Gryon since the age of 2. He is part of Gryon ski club.
