Being a glider instructor in the Paris region, I had the opportunity to do a summer placement in Barcelonnette in the southern Alps and this is one of the things that gave me a taste for the mountains.
Today I share my life between Courchevel in the winter where I am a groomer for the S3V and Barcelonnette in the summer, where I am a gliding instructor

I set up a charity called “Accès Montagne eXperience” a while ago, as I want to allow disabled people to be more autonomous in the practice of their sport.
- With rental equipment (ski chair and electrically assisted handbike), financed by foundations.
- By organising ski courses, ideally in Courchevel! To build upon this idea of collaboration between able-bodied and disabled, to exchange and get to know more about what’s involved.
- By going into schools to meet kids and help them become aware of all that it is possible when living with a disability.
I was lucky to meet the right people who wanted to help me, so I want to provide an equivalent to all those who would like to present me with their idea for a project: “I want to ski for a week, become a groomer, a ski patrol…”.
In short, it’s a charity set up to share and to help!
Editor's note: if you want to know more, go to www.amxhandi.fr to give a donation or for help organising a ski trip and/or if you have another idea for a fantastic project like Antoine's!
