DOMINIK PARIS, NORDICA ATHLETE
Italian Dominik Paris is built for speed. He entered the realm of legends on January 26, 2013, when he won the Hahnenkamm downhill on the storied Streif course, then confirmed his skills with a silver medal in Schladming, Austria, at the World Championshi
“I HAVE SKIED WITH NORDICA FOR MORE THAN 11 YEARS. I TRUST IN THIS COMPANY.”
But life on snow hasn’t been easy for the 26-year-old Italian ski racer. His wins on the World Cup in 2013 were overshadowed by the death of his brother in a motorcycle accident in June of that year. His fight on the circuit to stay in the top 10 the following season was heroic, made sweeter by his early-season win at Lake Louise.
Through interviews and Paris’ own comments online, we’ve learned more about what this Italian ski racer loves the most in life, how his struggles have forced him to re-focus, and how much he respects working with Nordica skis and boots over the past decade.
