How and when did you start skiing, how has it evolved ever since and what got you into freeskiing?
I've been skiing since I was 3 years old. When I was 6 years old, I started telemark skiing and alpine racing, and I did that for ten years with good results. At the age of 16 I decided to start freeskiing and competed in slopestyle for 4 years. Then I started freeride comps. I'm a free spirit and always look for freedom, that's why I'm free-skiing!
What does skiing mean to you personally?
It means freedom and fun.
What were your 3 biggest accomplishments on hill and why?
The first time I landed a 360 after crashing so hard in the park for so many times.
The first 4* I won last year in Norway because I actually went on “holiday” with no pressure and had so much fun.
And last but not least, that time when I took my mum to the pillow- line and she just followed me!!
What aspect of skiing thrills you the most?
Every aspect, but mostly the backcountry. I'd like to bring more tricks in powder.
In what conditions and what terrain do enjoy riding the most?
Icy slopes are my favorite....... but I don't mind skiing some pow! hehehee
Any activities that aren’t ski related?
I'm open to every new activity, but usually I go surfing as soon as the snow melts. I also like slacklining, hiking in nature, travelling, meeting people and reading.
How do you manage to combine family/ friends and job?
I don't know really, I'm not good at managing, I usually just live day by day.
Please answer, if possible, with one word only.
