Yule rose quickly to make his World Cup debut in the 2012 season in Kitzbühel at the age of 18, he had achieved his first points at the European Cup level just a month earlier. Having had a year of solid results in the European Cup in 2013, he became a World Cup regular in 2013-14.
After earning his first European Cup victory in the early 2013-14 season, Yule achieved his first World Cup points in the third slalom of the year, a race that was moved to Bormio, where he took 17 place. The breakthrough result came on the same piste on which he had made his World Cup debut. With a start number of 41, Yule finished 30th after the first run, meaning he was the last person to qualify for a second. In that second run, Yule took 4 tenths of a second out of the rest of the field, which catapulted him up the order to eventual 7th position. This result was enough to earn him a place on the Swiss Olympic Team in Sochi, where he competed in the slalom. Twelfth after the first run, Yule was disqualified in the second. After the Olympics, Yule went to his first Junior World Championships, where he earned a Bronze Medal in the slalom.
The 2015 season was to be the first which Yule concentrated on the World Cup, although Yule did claim back-to-back victories in the two European Cup slaloms in Chamonix. He was able to find consistency in his skiing at the World Cup level, achieving points in 7 of the first 8 races of the season. Yule finished tenth three times; in Levi, Zagreb, and Schladming. and with those results, he fulfilled the selection criteria for the World Championships. His run in the slalom at the Championships ended very quickly, as he skied out of the course after only three gates. Yule's season results were enough to qualify for the World Cup Finals for the first time, and he finished the slalom tour in 16th as highest ranked Swiss in the discipline.
Yule began the year promisingly with a ninth place in the first slalom of the season in Val-d'Isère after the season opener in Levi was cancelled.
