OUR STORY

Mountains on Stage, back to the beginning!

It all started with a meeting with Yves Exbrayat, the famous organizer of "Les Rencontres du Cinéma de Montagne de Grenoble" festival, which gathered more than 3000 spectators each night during 5 nights!

Cyril and Manon, who had just graduated, fell in love with the festival and thus decided to develop their own project in Paris. 

In order to do so, they chose to import the very concept of Grenoble festival which had made

its reputation for 15 years, namely the projection of mountain films followed by the intervention of their protagonists on stage. A true moment of sharing and exchanging. 

 

The festival was born in March 2013 and since then, the festival has been growing year after year, not only in France, but also in Europe.

That's him, Cyril Salomon.

Salomon such as the ski brand! 

Graduated from HEC Business School with a specialisation in business. A mountain lover and an outdoor sports addict, he wants to share his passions with the largest number of people. The photo on the left was taken on the summit of Cho Oyu (8 201m) which he climbed without the use of supplemental oxygen.

That's her, Manon Grimwood.

​Graduated from ESTP School and then she completed her education with a master's degree in entrepreneurship at HEC Business School.

Her motto is that mountains are good for you! She practices skiing, ski touring, mountaineering, and she loves sharing those passions!
