Andy Parisod - FRA

Andy hails from the town of Gryon in the French part of Switzerland, only minutes away from the ski slopes. Skiing was always part of his life. He started telemark skiing in 2009 and never looked back. It is his passion. "The Swiss Machine" signed on with Bishop Bindings in January 2014, after trying out the Bishop 2.0. It is perfect fit for his style: very durable, laterally stiff binding that inspires confidence as he pushes the boundaries of telemark on the slopes and in the park. To support his telemark passion, he founded the W.O.R.S.T Crew with two childhood friends, Benoit Golay and Jonas Chevallier. It is a telemark club that organizes visits to other European resorts and an annual free event called Telefest, an event that promotes their addiction by lending telemark boots and skis to people who want to try it. They organize a little competition for the beginners. The club also promotes telemark by editing and posting videos. His dream is to continue to take photos and make videos while travelling all winter long. One he is currently living on a trip around the world following the winter!
