Testimony of Thomas Mialon :
"I live at the foot of the mountains. I've been skiing a lot, with a preference for steep slopes. My first cruciate ligament rupture on the slopes was a first warning which was confirmed with a second accident two years later. This second cruciate ligament rupture cooled me down. As a speed sports enthusiast, I then became interested in other ways of skiing that would put less strain on my knees. The Snooc was a revelation. I find very intense sensations again, especially since I'm at ground level. It's reassuring for my legs, I have no joint pain after a day's skiing! It was very quick to take in hand and I can go over black tracks as well as bumpy fields.
