He achieved his biggest success at the Vancouver Olympics, winning the bronze medal in Slalom. During 2012-2013 winter season he won the Slalom Race in Levi and gained a second place both in Zagreb FIS WC Slalom and in parallel slalom in Moscow. His charisma shines through not only on the snow (he’s also a freeride enthusiast): he’s a talented musician and his live performances with his inseparable guitar – painted with Nordica Fire Arrow style graphics – are not to be missed. For André music is a hobby that he enjoys and that brings him closer to the younger fans in an original and creative way!

What drove you to become a competitive ski racer:
I‚Äôve always been competitive in everything I‚Äôve done. I love to ski since I was younger so when I came to that point in life I needed to chose sport, skiing was my first choice.
Define yourself in three words:
Determined, kind, awesome
I love... to ski
I hate... I try not to hate that much
I need... a new driver to reach my goal of single hcp in golf
I believe... in myself
I find inspiration... in my goals and my achievements
My greatest achievement is... my bronze medal in Vancouver
My most treasured possession is... my guitars
A Memorable experience... I will never forget when I took my hard earned car out of spin for the first time in the beginning of this summer :)
If I could live anywhere, it would be... in Sweden
My interests other than skiing... play my guitar, music, watersports, golf
3 items I can‚Äôt live without... I guess I would be able to live without most of my possessions but my Macbook, Guitar and Car are for sure things that make my life a little easier.
Money or Fame? I‚Äôd say they come hand in hand
Beach or mountains? Beach
Favorite song... I can‚Äôt choose, too many! I‚Äôm listening a lot to Thin Lizzy at the moment. Jailbreak and Fighting are two great albums.
Favorite book... I don‚Äôt have one. I‚Äôm reading a self-bio about Slash, interesting but maybe not the best I‚Äôve ever red though.
Favorite films... I like Gone in 60 seconds, but it‚Äôs more because of the cars.
A good friend is... honest
Nordica because... it‚Äôs the best a man can get
My motto is... Go for the cup
