Biography

Unlike Alfred Aufdenblatten and brothers Alfons and Anton Julen, who were all from Zermatt, Denis Vaucher hailed from Bern, where he was a member of Skiclub Bern. Nonetheless, he joined these men in representing Switzerland in the military ski patrol event at the 1924 Winter Olympics, where he won a gold medal.
