Grospiron retired after the 1995 season and went into coaching, motivational and performance improvement, as well as working in a consultative role for athletes. He became the director-general of the Annecy bid for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, which lost out to Pyeongchang, Korea. Grospiron was made a chevalier of the légion d’honneur in 1996. He has also made some preliminary steps towards fulfilling some political aspirations but through 2013 with not much success.
