Walter Jeandel

Walter Jeandel (25 April 1918 – 4 April 2012) was a French cross-country and Nordic combined skier who competed in the 1948 Winter Olympics.Walter Jeandel, skieur émérite des années 40, avec son frère René, s’est éteint à l’hôpital de Bagnères-de-Bigorre le 4 avril à l’âge de 93 ans.

Né en Suisse d’un père français et d’une mère suisse, mobilisé en 1938, il découvrit les Pyrénées pendant son service militaire et se fixa à Montory.

Il fut en 1951 champion de France de saut à ski et fit partie de l’équipe de France de ski nordique et de l’équipe de France olympique.

À partir de 1961, les deux frères Jeandel furent parmi les pionniers de la station d’Arette-La Pierre Saint-Martin, et en construisirent plusieurs installations, dont la première remontée mécanique et l’hôtel du Pic d’Anie. Un refuge, tenu depuis dix-neuf ans par Jean Hourticq, porte leur nom ainsi qu’une piste de ski.

Grand skieur et grand montagnard, Walter Jeandel pratiquait également le tennis et, dans la dernière partie de sa vie, le golf à Lannemezan.

Il s’était, ces dernière années, retiré à Labarthe-de-Neste (65).
