Gilles Riou is the Top Snow Travel Co-Founder and a world-class ski enthusiast who understands the needs of a luxury ski holiday. His expertise comes from having skied at more than 60 ski resorts around the world, including Canada, the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Switzerland, and more than 30 different resorts in France alone. Not only has he explored the French Alps while on holiday from his current home in Australia, Gilles spent much of his adolescence on these remarkable mountains.
From just 2 years old until he was 15, Gilles was fortunate enough to visit his family-owned home at a ski resort in the French Alps. Every school holiday, he and his loved ones would leave their home in Paris and enjoy the atmosphere and excitement of this stunning mountain region. It was here that he developed a sincere love for the sport of skiing, as well as a wealth of knowledge regarding the best places to stay and ski. These memories stayed with him long after he moved to Australia as a teen.
After school, Gilles spent the first decade of his career working in the travel and tourism industry selling worldwide ski holidays to the Australian market. However, he knew he had more to offer so he decided to venture out on his own. In 2015, Top Snow Travel was created to give fellow Aussies the incredible experience of elite skiing on some of the very best slopes in the world. His desire to share this passion with others is just one of the reasons Top Snow Travel is a top-rated travel company today.
