Favourite riding spots?
I travelled the world with my snowboard and there are lots of beautiful mountains, but the ones that I would love to ride every day would be: Olympus a small club field in NZ, it’s set up just for freeriding, Las Leñas in Argentina, the lift take forever but the ride down is nice, steep and with lots of different options. Verbier in Switzerland, this is my favourite place; there are so many good runs… I will show you.

What does snowboarding mean to you?
I started snowboarding in 1990 and I am hooked to the sport since. I spend every winter in the snow, playing around with my board. I Just love it.

What are you into besides snowboarding?
In the summer when I am not off travelling I work as an independent Landscape gardener in Verbier. Downhill biking is my summer sport; I love to go down the mountains with a complete different challenge. Spending time with my family and friends stays priority number one.
