    • When did you start with Freeriding, since when skiing?? I started freeriding approx. 6 years ago (although deep powder skiing, helicopter skiing and “black saltos” have always been done, only called differently). Skiing I started at the age of 3.
    • Since when are you equipped by KOMPERDELL? since 2012
    • What do you connect with the brand KOMPERDELL? My old racing time when I was still in the ÖSV squad. Then I have already been equipped by KOMPERDELL. And of course the topic safety which is incredibly important especially for freeriding. Protectors should hardly be felt, should fit perfectly and protect at 100%, for this reason I rely on Komperdell.
    • What are your favourite tricks with Freeriding and what would you still like to carry out? Back flips and 360ies in terrain, I already know how to do them more or less, but I would like to try do to tricks from a higher cliff always land at 100% neatly. Up to now this is a game of luck.
    • What ski regions/tours/places do you like most? I really travel the world everywhere, but I love coming home. I know the places near to me rather well and therefore I know where and when it is best. This has quite some benefits.
