In 2006 Thomas moved to Châtel in the French Alps with his family. His first ski instructor, Richard, noticed how Thomas skied and recommended that he join the local Freestyle team. He was accepted on the spot and has trained with the team ever since. Thomas and his twin sister won a pair of skis each for being the only two team members to have 100% attendance record. This adherence to his training schedule has seen a steady rise in his performance to podium level.
