Constantly testing the limits of what is possible and experimenting with adrenaline-charged new ideas, Victor has made a name for himself as one of the most original and exciting talents in snowboarding. Although he’s known for his backcountry adventures, he’s an all-around force, whether on steep Alaskan faces or off big booters in the park, always innovating and never sacrificing style—a trait that’s earned him titles like Rider of the Year and ending segments of major snowboard films. Victor’s last name bears heavy weight in the snowboard world. Between five siblings who grew up at a small resort in the French Pyrenees, the de Le Rue dynasty has earned Olympic medals, World Championship cups, Freeride World Tour trophies, and TransWorld SNOWboarding awards. Victor is now attracted more and more to mountaineering and loves to mix the activities he knows like snowboarding, rappelling, flying away with his light paraglide etc.
The mountains are so attractive to me. I just love the feeling of being out there, whether winter or summer. Every single alpine adventure I do makes me a better and happier person. I just can't get enough mountain time!
