PROFESSIONALISM, DARING, HUMOUR, AND A HEALTHY APPETITE FOR WIDE OPEN POWDER FIELDS…THESE ARE THE MAIN QUALITIES OF THE ZAG TEAM.
  • Caroline de Wailly
    MARKETING & COMMUNICATION DIRECTOR
    ZAG… more than just skis…a whole universe! My job is to encourage you to try our skis…as then you will enjoy a different and fulfilling ski experience. With Zag, Elevate your sensations ! When heading off with the team to the Grands Montets I’m always grateful to have available lightweight and easy turning skis like the Ubac Lady to help me keep up ! When I ski with my family in the Aravis, I’m happiest with my S-112 Lady skis as they allow me to commit whatever the snow conditions are like. Apart from being great skis, they’re also lovely to look at…. Very important !
  • Franck Bernes-Heuga
    THE BOSS!
    I may be the big boss but what is most important to me is that my team can really flourish alongside me and that they share the same desire to live the Zag adventure in excess! My skiing goal was to make 300 turns in one descent and I achieved this thanks to my H-85 Lady 155cm skis. I can now go back to my S-122s and Bakan skis !
  • Bastien Saillard
    R&D DIRECTOR
    It’s because of me, or thanks to me, that you enjoy your skis. I imagine, design and test all of the skis and being a perfectionist I always want more ! More performance, lighter weight, greater fun factor and of course ease of skiing, which we all need ! I’m often skiing prototypes but you will find me on S-122s 193 cm in the Chamonix trees on on H-112s 195 cm at the top of a big powder field ! When touring I take Ubacs as I know I can rely on them whatever the conditions.
  • Baptiste Barbot
    SALES MANAGER FRANCE
    My job is to make sure that you can find a pair of Zag skis in every freeride spot in France. In my ZAGmobile I wind my way through the mountains to help spread our passion for freeride skiing to even the most remote spots. When my car breaks down (!) I get out my S-112s 186 cm : I just can’t seem to break the habit! Amazingly maneuverable on both hard snow as well as in the freshest powder. Whether straight lining cut up snow or entering the trees, this ski has never let me down. A weapon with a warm heart : guaranteed fun !
  • Baptiste Droz-Vincent
  • Alan Lemasson
    COMMUNITY MANAGER
    I’m the social media guy at ZAG ! Whether it’s a Facebook posting, photo on Instagram, a Youtube video or even a photo-shoot, you can be sure I’m involved ! When I’m not riding my downhill bike, I love touring with my UBAC XL skis which are light enough not to tire my legs too much for the up and then really reward me on the down ! If there’s 50 cm of fresh snow at my home town of Chablais I pull out the S-112 as it’s such a high performance yet amazingly playful powder-machine !
  • Romain LOISEAU
    INTERNATIONAL SALES MANAGER
    My daily work is made of multicultural conversations and broad horizons... Whether it be in English, in French or in German, I am fully devoted to ZAG's international coverage. If you meet any ZAG ski on Japanese powder-packed slopes, on chilean glaciers or in the Austrian Alps, I was certainly here before!

    I like diversity in the snow too. Come with me have a taste of strong effort in touring with Ubac XL 188, let's enjoy large curves on Chamonix slopes with our H-88 184 cm, get delighted in backcountry with a pair of S-112 188 cm, before getting the best of that day in a typical alpine restaurant, sipping some local hot wine.
  • Benjamin Dorin
    LOGISTIC MANAGER
    I’m responsible for sending on your orders doing my very best to make sure your receive your skis as quickly as possible ! I’m a big fan of my H-88 skis when charging around the pistes but swop to my S-112s 186 cm when venturing off into the backcountry.
  • Leonard Pierrel
    PROJECT DEVELOPER
    I strive to find the best components and materials to ensure your Ze Trackers mount securely to your skis and that they stay there ! Coming from a freestyle background, you’ll find me on the S-112 186 cm at the Grands Montets or on the S-122 193 cm for hero turns in the ENSA couloir !
  • Nicolas Périer
    R&D MANAGER
    I am in charge of the ZAG lab. My job is to transform the increasingly innovative ideas and sketches of our visionary shaper into working models. In summary, prototype skis are my thing! My favourite playground is La Tête Aubry at Flégère. When I’m there, I’ll always have my H-112 skis with me, whatever the conditions.
  • Emilie Wrona
    FINANCE MANAGER
    I’m in charge of the financial health of ZAG. If you’ve got an accounts query, a financial or administrative question, then I’m here to help. The H-95 LADY is my do-it-everything ski and in many ways reflects my character by being adaptable, responsive and comforting ! Chamonix is the playground that helps clear my head. Depending on the conditions you’ll either find me “touring” across the pistes or heading through the forest. Both equally enjoyable !
  • Noé Mollard
    Pro Service Manager
    I take care of every mountain guides, ski instructors and snow patrols who share their passion for mountains and skiing, while ensuring safety for the skiers around them! Working closely with these people is essential for ZAG! I used to do freestyle tricks but now you will find me charging the S-112s 182 cm, jumping my first cliffs at Grands Montets or charging the fluffy snow of the Magic Forest with Baptiste !
