Biography

Born to a French father and an American mother in Missoula, Montana, Lamy-Chappuis lived in the United States until he was 5, living mainly at Copper Mountain, Colorado. He participated in his first ski racing events at Club Med in Copper Mountain, Colorado as a child. In 1991, at the age of five, he moved to the small village of Bois-d'Amont in eastern France with his parents. There, he attended school and began more intensive training, but continued to race for NASTAR, the American racing program, that year.

Lamy-Chappuis still has many family members in the United States, many of whom traveled to Vancouver to cheer for him in the 2010 Olympics. He also maintains close ties to the American ski team, resulting in U.S. coach Dave Jarrett suggesting jokingly that Lamy-Chappuis switch back to his American citizenship to compete for them. Before flying to Vancouver for the 2010 Olympics, he attended a pre-Olympic training camp in Park City, Utah with the Americans.

An avid flying enthusiast, Lamy-Chappuis started taking flying lessons at the age of 18, so far logging 70 flight hours. His website reflects his passion for flying and is designed to look like a cockpit. He has stated that he plans to focus on receiving his pilot's license following the 2009-2010 season. In addition to skiing, Lamy-Chappuis works as a French border patrol officer.
