Etienne Letondeur
Head Coach

Etienne has been involved in Nordic sports his whole life. Growing up in one of France’s #1 biathlon areas, in a family involved in the sports and with Nordic trails going through his backyard, he stood on skis the first time when he was 17 months old. Since then he has been connected to the sports competitively both as athlete and coach, on the business side as sales and race service representative for ski brands, and as a technical advisor, volunteer and association member to foster sport development.

Etienne Letondeur has been WNDC Head Coach since 2016.

WNDC Assistant Coach Martin Schrama, Whistler Olympic Park

In 2010, he became Junior National Champion. He was member of both the Alberta and British Columbia provincial teams, part of the Canadian Junior National Team in 2011/2012 and a member of the Callaghan Valley Training Centre from 2011-2014.
