One thing has not changed since the second year of my life - the feeling of freedom while being on the board is a part of my life! After my time in ski racing, I focused on the type of skiing that I enjoy the most. Freeriding is for me the combination of hiking, to search untouched nature, steep terrains, fun, drops, speed, these intense moments before a run and the indescribable feeling being skied after a new line. To experience these moments with friends is for me a perfect day. I enjoy every single moment in the mountains!
