What drove you to become a competitive Freerider:

Freeskiing is and was always everything for me. After racing I saw all this cool movies from the states and I wanted to try that too. This was motivating for me to develop from a ski racer to a ski guide and finally to a professional Freerider.

Define yourself in three words:
quiet, restless, fair!

I love skiing in all it’s ways

I hate tax.

I need freedom.

I believe in my skills.

I find inspiration in the quiet times of the year.

My greatest achievement is that I was close to win the Freeride world tour title.

My most treasured possession is our house.

A Memorable experience was to jump the hollywood cliff in Verbier the first time. Scary ;-)

If I could live anywhere, it would be where I live now.

My interests other than skiing are biking, climbing and my little family.

3 items I can’t live without: car, Mac book, skis!

Money or Fame? Nothing of that I need, all I need is to live my passion in some kind of activity.

Beach or mountains? mountains

Favorite song, “Half the world away” from REM

Favorite book: Illuminati
