About Guerlain Chicherit and the GC-Kollection
Guerlain Chicherit made not one but three of the world's most extreme sports his career and playground.
After winning his fourth world title in free skiing, Chicherit decided to try his hand at motor sports instead, throwing himself into rally driving to start. He won the French Rally Cup, the 2009 FIA Cross Country Rally World Cup, as well as several stages of the Dakar Rally, which, known as the toughest endurance rally in the world, Guerlain has raced 10 times now.
As a stunt driver, he pushed the limits of precision and determination to complete the world's first unassisted backflip in a car, in February 2013. The following year, he wowed the world with his attempted world's longest car jump, which he spectacularly crashed, but somehow walked away unscathed.
2015 saw Guerlain make is debut in the FIA World Rallycross Championship, to which he returned in 2016 entering selected events in preparation for the 2017 season.
Guerlain has now taken his precise eye for detail, along with his passion for unique and innovative design to create a number of distinct luxury ski chalets in Tignes les Brévières that form part of the GC-Kollection
Starting with his rider's pad; The Chalet Quezac, built in 2013, and filled with world-famous sporting memorabilia, his sporting trophies and every gadget and added service you could possibly think of. Chalet Quezac won the award of World's Best New Ski Chalet 2014, and has since made the final of France's Best Ski Chalet 2016 awards.
Following that, Guerlain created Chalet Rock 'n' Love in 2015, which explores the retro world of Rock n' Roll featuring numerous quirky details such as the use of real life vehicles for the pool table and the children's beds. Chalet Rock n' Love also made the final for Chalet Quezac's 2014 title; World's Best New Ski Chalet 2016.
This year, Guerlain decided to expand the GC Kollection further to include Chalet Babylon, Chalet Banksy and Chalet Ubud, which will be ready for the winter season 2017. Each will have its own individual unique design and share an indoor wellness centre with swimming pool and fitness area.
Guerlain incorporates his sporting and travel experiences into each chalet he designs. His vision is to create totally unique, innovative and fun ski chalets for the whole family, featuring the utmost in luxury and adventure to provide a holiday like never experienced before!
