Favourite riding spots?
My Favourite spots are the ones that have personality in their terrain and vegetation. To have the best days you need to have good snow and knowledge of the place.Verbier 4 Valleys and its surroundings are definitely on top of my list. But also Squaw Valley in the US, Cerro Chapelco and Caviahue in Argentina are very special places.

What does snowboarding mean to you?
Snowboarding and its lifestyle is what I live for. Sharing the riding feeling with other motivated riders, gives me energy and motivation in life. I Love to see it progress and be a part of it. Helping people find this feeling is a big personal reward.

What are you into besides snowboarding?
At the moment I love spending time with my daughter Zoe who has just turned one. I can’t wait to show her how to snowboard. Spending time by a bonfire with friends, playing music is one of my favourite things in life.

Regarding sport activities, I like sports in general, especially the single action sports I can do in nature like Downhill Biking, Surfing and Snow Kiting. I try to find time for them in between seasons as I spend most of the year snowboarding.
