Where is your favorite place to snowboard and why?
I like to ride in the canton of Valais, located in the southwestern part of Switzerland. It is easily accessible by train from my hometown and has endless possibilities for resort riding, as well as for touring. The diversity of mountains there is huge, and due to its geographic location, there is always one side of the region that gets good snow conditions.
What has snowboarding or the mountains taught you?
The mountains have taught me humility, patience and perseverance.
Tell us about one incredible or influential snowboarding achievement or moment.
When Romain De Marchi, JP Solberg and Jules Reymond hit the famous Camel toe jump in Champéry for the Absinthe movie Neverland. It was really next level at that time and it would still be today. I was 18 years old at the time and when I went snowboarding in Champéry the following weekend I could see the jump and the tracks with my own eyes. I was really impressed by their performance.
What are you passionate about besides snowboarding?
