From 1961 to 1964, he was a member of the judiciary. In 1976, he became a counsellor in the Conseil d'État, a position from which he retired on 25 August 1995. During the 1970s, he held subordinate governmental positions regarding sports.

Pierre Mazeaud's main hobby is alpinism, which he practiced at high level. On 11 July 1961, Mazeaud and other fellow climbers almost died in the Mont Blanc massif due to an unexpected storm.

On 15 October 1978 he became the first Frenchman to climb Mount Everest together with Jean Afanassieff, Nicolas Jaeger and Kurt Diemberger (from Austria).
